Gantry

When trainer Ron Faucheux and owner Brittlyn Stable purchased the Pulpit gelding, Gantry, privately following an allowance race at Belmont last October, they were just hoping for a nice sprinter to run in Louisiana and made the 2011 Thanksgiving Day Handicap at Fair Grounds his first goal. Their new purchase rewarded them with the victory in the opening day feature of the New Orleans track and is now taking them well beyond their wildest dreams. Gantry proceeded to win two more stakes at the Fair Grounds, including the Duncan F. Kenner Stakes before tackling the Grade 2 Churchill Downs Handicap in May where he finished third to Shackleford and last year’s champion sprinter and Breeders’ Cup winner Amazombie. In June 2012, he secured an automatic berth to the Breeders’ Cup Sprint with his victory in the Smile Handicap. While Louisiana is better known for producing champion jockeys than champion horses, Gantry will prepare for the Breeders’ Cup at his home base at the Evageline Training Center. He is likely to have only one prep race for traveling to California for the Breeders’ Cup.
