Run Away and Hide vaults to 2nd on freshman sire list

Lignite's three-quarter length victory in a 5 1/2-furlong maiden race July 20 at Saratoga vaulted Run Away and Hide to the second spot on the First Crop sire list, behind only fellow Darby Dan freshman sire Magna Graduate.

Lignite is the second winner for Run Away and Hide, who was undefeated as a 2-year-old, with wins in the Grade 2 Saratoga Special, when he set a stakes record of 1:15.67 for 6 1/2-furlongs, and the Grade 3 Kentucky S.

The first juvenile race of the 2012 Saratoga meet featured plenty of well-bred 2-year-old fillies, but Lignite bested them all with a front-running victory in 1:05.02. The winner earned $48,000 for a partnership of owners that includes New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker and trainer Wesley Ward.

Lignite is a half-sister to 2011 Mountaineer Juvenile S. winner Backdoor Kenny. She was a $35,000 auction purchase at the 2011 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky summer yearling sale.
