Amber-Lynn Jacobson of Running Fawcett Thoroughbred is a busy thoroughbred breeder and trainer as well as a familiar name at the Alberta Thoroughbred Sales. She was the top consignor by average this year and sold the highest priced yearling with a $45,000 Point of Entry filly. One of her all-time favourite horses, however, is a six-year-old full brother to multiple stakes winner Canaveral Leader named Runmommasboyrun (Runrun).

Consigned through the 2012 CTHS Alberta Yearling sale, Runrun was the very first horse Jacobson ever bred and “when he sold, it was bittersweet but from that day,” she said. “I told (buyer) Crystal Cates, manager of Riversedge, that I wanted to have first right of refusal to buy him when he was done racing.”
