Saturday, Sept. 2: The talented TALK OF THE NATION (’20 c. Quality Road / She’s Not Here) faced off against seven rivals at Kentucky Downs last weekend in the one-mile $1,000,000 Gun Runner Stakes.
Breaking sharply from the gate, TALK OF THE NATION stalked the leader until mid-stretch when the colt dug in under jockey JOSE ORTIZ to prevail by half a length. Earning a 111 Equibase speed figure, his third triple-digit rating, the SHUG McGAUGHEY trainee has now racked up $778,610 in earnings with a record of four wins and two seconds out of seven lifetime starts. Bred by and co-owned by CHC INC, TALK OF THE NATION races for JOSEPH ALLEN, LLC and CHC, INC.
We look forward to more great things for this exciting colt.
