Shotgun Express was a part of two horses purchased as yearlings for our Inside Information Group. Shotgun Express was selected by Radley Equine / Boomer Bloodstock at the '19 Keeneland September Yearling Sale and they purchased him for $210,00.
This Irish-bred gelding began his career at Del Mar with trainer Dan Blacker. He transferred to Andy Mathis after two starts with Blacker. In total, Shotgun Express won three races at Golden Gate Fields and finished in the top three 50% of the time. He was claimed from us in his third win on November 19, 2022 and is racing for new connections today.

RACE RECORD AT TIME OF CLAIM
Shotgun Express was foaled in Ireland on January 27, 2018. He is sired by Coolmore Ireland's exciting stallion No Nay Never and is out of a Galileo mare.
Galileo is Shotgun Express' dam sire. Galileo was a brilliant racehorse, but was even greater as a sire. Among the many Grade/Group 1 winners produced by Galileo is Frankel, whom many consider to be one of the greatest horses to ever live.
Shotgun Express won three times, finished second once, and third once for a total of 5 top three finishes in 10 starts. This gave him a placing record of 50%.
