Since breaking his maiden in October 2012, Last Gunfighter has been on a charge through the ranks. The 4-year-old colt had won six straight races, including two Grade 3s before finishing second behind the consistent Flat Out in the 2013 Suburban Handicap (G2). Last Gunfighter came fully loaded in August when he won the Philip H. Iselin Stakes (G3), showing that he’s a true contender in the older horse ranks.
Last Gunfighter was originally entered in the 2010 Keeneland September Yearling Sale but was scratched from the sale. Breeder John Gunther kept the First Samurai colt, who now races in his colors. He is trained by Chad Brown, who has trained two Breeders’ Cup winners and three on-the-board finishers in his career.
