Talented 3-year-old colt Are You Kidding Me, who hails from the first crop of Darby Dan stallion Run Away and Hide, has shown much improved speed and focus since adding blinkers in his last start. That move paid dividends Saturday, Sept. 7 when he sped to an impressive front-running win in the $200,000 Kent S. (G3) WATCH VIDEO at Delaware Park, where he ran his rivals off their feet from the start to post a dominant four-length victory on the wire.

The win makes Are You Kidding Me the newest graded stakes winner by young, promising sire Run Away and Hide, who has also sired top 3-year-old sprinter Mico Margarita (G3) and California’s top 2-year-old colt Alberts Hope (G2) already in 2013.

Are You Kidding Me is trained by top Canadian-based conditioner Roger Attfield and owned by John Bates, Ron Kirk, Greg McDonald & Riordan, Shaw & Sones. The partnership also bred the bay colt in Kentucky. Are You Kidding Me raised his earnings to $301,689 with the big win, which was his third from 13 starts to date.

Also Saturday, 3-year-old filly Lignite, who is also from the first crop of Run Away and Hide, won a $94,000 allowance race on opening day at Kentucky Downs.
