Undefeated Run Away powers to Best Pal S. (G2) win

Run Away and Hide’s brilliant 2-year-old colt Run Away did just that in Saturday’s $200,000 Best Pal S. (G2) at Del Mar, taking over the lead at the quarter pole and never looking back as he rolled to a 3 ½-lengths to up his record to a perfect three-for-three.

After breaking his maiden first time out on May 26, Run Away followed that up with a win in the $100,000 Santa Anita Juvenile on July 3. He has now earned $212,400 for owner Kaleem Shah and trainer Simon Callaghan.

“I think it was even better than his last race,” said Callaghan. “He’s got great gate speed but he isn’t one of those horses that is speed crazy. I thought he’d get over this track well. I was a little nervous when he put in a slow breeze (5 furlongs, 1:03.60 a week earlier) when I was in Saratoga. But my team here assured me that it was a good breeze. He’s just a cool horse – fast, very mature and I think he’s going to get better as we stretch out. The Futurity is next.” 

The Futurity is the $300,000 Del Mar Futurity (G1) on Sept. 4, closing day of the current meet.

For Run Away and Hide, Run Away is his third graded stakes winner this year. His runners are winning at a 16-plus percent clip this year and have banked nearly $2 million.
