Run Away and Hide: A MarketWatch value sire for 2014
RSS Feeds Saturday, November 23, 2013 | Posted to: Run Away And Hide
Following a stellar 2013 year for his progeny, the BloodHorse's MarketWatch has named Run Away and Hide one of their value sires for 2014 based on his yearling average, earnings per starter, and progeny statistics compared with their 2013 fees.

Run Away and Hide, who stood the 2013 season for $5,000, will stand the 2014 season for $7,500. He currently ranks tenth on the Second-Crop Sire list, with progeny earnings of $1.7 million. His 6.1% graded stakes winners from starters leads other Grade One sires such as Curlin, Majestic Warrior, Midnight Lute, and Into Mischief.

Run Away and Hide has five stakes winners to date this year, with a trio of graded winners led by 2-year-old Albert's Hope, who took the Grade 2 Best Pal S. at Del Mar. His other graded victors are a pair of 3-year olds: Are You Kidding Me (G3 Kent S. at Delaware Park) and Mico Margarita (G3 Carry Back S. at Calder). These three earned their stakes wins on different surfaces (dirt, turf, and synthetic surfaces), displaying their sire's ability to get runners to handle any conditons.

MarketWatch points to stats showing that Run Away and Hide's average earnings per starter is up 58% over 2012, the biggest jump of any of the eight sires on the list, while his yearling auction average has jumped a solid 14%.
