I Know When to Run marked winner number six for her sire Run Away and Hide with a game maiden win Sept. 7 at Louisiana Downs. The young Darby Dan stallion is fifth on the freshman sire list and is one of only two first-crop sires with two repeat-winning juveniles.
Going a mile and 70 yards, Louisiana-bred I Know When to Run locked into a duel around the first turn, then fell back off the lead before making her move at the lead once again at the head of the stretch. She dug in during the late stages to hold on by a neck.
I Know When to Run was bred by Run Away and Hide Syndicate, Thomas Curtis and Wayne Simpson from the Beau Genius stakes-placed mare Iknowhowtodance, who has five foals, all winners.
