Spun to Run, winner of last year’s Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile (G1), will enter stud at Gainesway in 2021, the farm announced Nov. 1st.
Among the top three-year-olds of his crop, Spun to Run demonstrated both class and remarkable speed during his sophomore campaign. In the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile (G1), he defeated some of the best of his generation, scoring a determined 2 ¾ length victory over Omaha Beach, Improbable, Mr. Money, Coal Front and Diamond Oops, while posting a 109 Beyer Speed Figure.
Following his triumph in the Breeders’ Cup, Spun to Run closed his three-year-old campaign with a runner-up finish to Eclipse Champion Maximum Security in the Cigar Mile (G1), earning a 105 Beyer. Spun to Run also placed in the Haskell Invitational (G1) and retired with career earnings of $1,160,520.
“Great milers make great stallions,” said Sean Tugel, Gainesway’s Director of Stallion Sales & Recruitment. “His speed figures at a mile were fantastic. To be able to run a 0 five times on the Thorographs as a three-year-old takes a special talent. The Breeders’ Cup is the biggest stage and Spun to Run ran a very talented group of colts off their feet.”
Spun to Run is the fastest son of Hard Spun (Danzig), sire of 3 Grade 1 winners in 2019 and 16 Grade 1 stakes horses lifetime. His first three dams are all juvenile winners including his dam, Yawkey Way (Grand Slam), who was a juvenile stakes winner at Saratoga and is also a multiple stakes producer.
Gainesway CEO Antony Beck added, “He possesses brilliant speed and he excelled as a miler. The Danzig sireline has provided top stallions worldwide and I am excited for Spun to Run’s future at Gainesway.”
Spun to Run will stand for $12,500 LFSN.
