Heaven's Runway set the pace under Harry Vega and and then dug in to prevail in the $100,000 Fitz Dixon Memorial at Presque Isle Downs on Saturday evening (VIDEO), handing Darby Dan freshman sire Run Away and Hide his first career stakes winner.

Run Away and Hide ranks third on the 2012 First Crop Sire list, with $463,251 in progeny earnings. His leading money earner is Are You Kidding Me, second place finisher in Woodbine's Grade 2 Summer S.

Heaven's Runway made all the pace in the 6 1/2-furlong Fitz Dixon, breaking alertly from the rail and establishing a one-length lead after a quarter mile in 23 seconds flat. The bay colt shook off the challenge of Discreet Man on the turn, then put in a resolute drive to hold sway over the late charge of Uptown Boy. The winner got the distance in 1:17.30 on a fast track.

Heaven's Runway is owned by his breeders, Drs. K.K and V. Jayaraman. The juvenile Kentucky-bred is now 2-1-0 in four starts, earning $96,550 and is a half-brother to Holy Heavens, winner of the 2011 Martha Washington S.
