Alston Gunter At Bruce Brown’s Barn

Our 2010-11 Fall-Winter Claiming Partnership’s final horse was Alston Gunter, a six-year-old Maryland-bred gelding by Great Notion out of Kathleen H. by Rollicking. We claimed him for $16,000 from a race at Aqueduct on February 22nd, 2013, where he finished a strong second.

Alston Gunter replaced this partnership’s previous horse, Tom Cat Allie, who was claimed away from us at PARX on September 3, 2012. In six races for us, Alston Gunter failed to replicate his earlier form. We eventually sent him to trainer Donnie White at PARX near Philadelphia, where he was claimed away by King Leatherbury on September 24, 2013, terminating the partnership.
