Run Away and Hide got his second 2-year-old stakes-winning colt of the past four days on Monday when the aptly-named Run Away pulled clear in deep stretch to win the $100,000 Santa Anita Juvenile.

The bay colt, who broke his maiden May 27 in his debut, now has won both his starts and earned $92,400 for owner Kaleem Shah.

Monday's Juvenile evolved into a two-horse race after the first furlong, when Run Away and Argosy Fleet hooked up on the front end. The duo was still together after a half-mile in :45.16, but once they hit the final furlong, Run Away began to subdue Argosy Fleet, crossing the wire a 1 1/2-length winner in 1:04.17 for the 5 1/2-furlongs.

“I thought rating would be an option today but I just left it to Flavien (jockey Flavien Prat),” said trainer Flavien Prat. “He knows this horse so well. I was a bit nervous that he was slow away from the gate and we had to rush up, so I thought it was a pretty good performance there at the end when we had to hold off Argosy Fleet.

“This is a good minded kind of colt. We’ll go to Del Mar and look at the Best Pal (G2, 6 ½ furlongs on Aug. 12) and the Futurity (G1, seven furlongs Sept. 4).”

Run Away is the 20th black type winner for his sire and comes just three days after the 2-year-old colt Ten City took the Bashford Manor S. (G3) at Churchill Downs.
