RSS Feeds Saturday, July 28, 2012
Are You Kidding Me closed swiftly in the final sixteenth of a mile to break his maiden July 28 at Woodbine by 2 3/4-lengths, giving his sire Run Away and Hide his third winner from his first crop. Run Away and Hide ranks in the top 5 on the Freshman Sire list with more than $145,000 in progeny earnings.

Are You Kidding Me was stuck in mid-pack of ten for the first half-mile of the six furlong contest on the synthetic surface. The bay Kentucky-bred picked up the pace after straightening for home, ultimately rolling by the leaders inside the final call to finish the distance in 1:11.56.

Owned by his breeders Ron Kirk, John Bates, Mike Riordan, Aaron Sones et al, Are You Kidding Me picked up $33,433 for the win. The juvenile colt is out of Sweet Awakening, a half-sister to Illinois Derby (G2) winner Recapturetheglory.
