Take It Like a Man took to the slop Saturday night at Charles Town to register a 1 1/4-length victory in the $400,000 Researcher S. for 3-year-olds (VIDEO). The chestnut colt is the fifth stakes winner this year for Run Away and Hide, putting him in third in that category on the Second Crop Sire list.

The seven furlong Researcher was the first time in 12 starts that Take It Like a Man had run on a sloppy  track, but the Kentucky bred handled the going very well. The pace was hot early, and Take It Like a Man was about a half-dozen lengths from the front through the first turn. Luis Saez sent his mount after the leaders down the backstretch, sweeping past pacesetter Mongolian Summer on the far turn, then pulled away late for a convincing win.

"I didn't want him to be in the back and have to catch a lot of mud, but when the pace was going quick on the front end I thought we'd have a good shot," said winning trainer Kellyn Gorder.

It was the first stakes victory for Take It Like a Man, who is owned by Lynn and Lola Cash. The colt is now 6 of 12 lifetime, with $339,915 in earnings. He is out of the stakes-winning mare Backatem, who has also produced the five-times stakes winner Running Bobcats. Backatem is a half-sister to millionaire and 12-time stakes winner Shadowbdancing.
