Run Away and Hide got his latest stakes winner Sunday at Woodbine when the 2-year-old colt Wallace led every step of the way to win the $100,000 Soaring Free S. by nearly two lengths.

Racing on the turf for the first time, Wallace was sent to the front right away from his inside post by Emma-Jayne Wilson. The bay youngster was very relaxed as he clipped off fractions of :24.01 and :47.32, then had plenty left in the stretch drive, easily holding off Tricky Magician to finish the six furlongs in 1:11.83 on a yielding turf.

Purchased two starts back by owner Lucio Tucci after breaking his maiden impressively on June 27 at Presque Isle Downs, Wallace came under trainer Sid Attard's care soon afterward.

“[Lucio] said make sure to run this horse on the grass, so we worked him and he worked really good, but thought it was a very tough race,” said Attard, crediting Tucci’s decision to enter the Soaring Free. “He called me before the race and he said, ‘You make sure to tell Emma: send him!’ 

The decision proved wise and improved Wallace's record to 2-1-0 in five starts and upped his bankroll to $73,572. Bred by Foundations Farm in Kentucky, Wallace is the first foal out of the Tale of the Cat mare Tales of Paradise.

Run Away and Hide now has nine stakes horses in 2018, led by Grade 2 winners Are You Kidding Me and Cheongsu Yeogeol.
