Run Away And Hide
Alan Porter - An undefeated multiple graded stakes winning two-year-old, Run Away and Hide is a champion siring son of City Zip who is moving up his mares.

Run Away and Hide is sire of multiple champion Are You Kidding Me out of a mare by Street Cry, from the Machiavellian branch of Mr. Prospector. Among sons of Street Cry are Street Sense, Street Boss and Desert Party. Runaway and Hide also sired multiple stakes winner Look Quickly out of a mare by Western Fame, from the Gone West branch of Mr. Prospector, which could also be brought in through Speightstown (sire of Munnings), Elusive Quality (sire of Smarty Jones and Quality Road), Grand Slam, Mr. Greeley (sire of El Corredor), Johar and Proud Citizen. City Zip has sired ten stakes winners out of Mr. Prospector line mares, including grade one winner Palace out of a mare by End Sweep (sire of Trippi), a son of Forty Niner, and he has three stakes winners, including grade two scorer Reneesgotzip out of a mare by another Forty Niner horse, Distorted Humor (sire of Any Given Saturday, Drosselmeyer, Flower Alley, Maclean’s Music and Sharp Humor). Other sources of Forty NIner include Coronado’s Quest, Ecton Park, Editor’s Note, Gold Fever, Jules (sire of Peace Rules), Roar, Tactical Advantage, Twining and West Acre. City Zip is also sire of grade one winner Bustin Stones out of a mare by Prospectors Gamble (by Crafty Prospector) and grade one winner Finest City out of mare by Lemon Drop Kid. There are two City Zip stakes winners out of mares by Thunder Gulch (by Gulch), and a stakes winner out of a mare by Seeking the Gold, the sire of Mutakkdim, Petionville and Cape Town. From the Fappiano branch of Mr. Prospector, City Zip is sire of two stakes winners, including graded stakes winner Stays In Vegas, out of mares by Broken Vow.

Run Away and Hide is sire of multiple stakes winner Tango Run out of a mare by Tale of the Cat (sire of Lion Heart), a son of Storm Cat, and City Zip has been extremely successful with mares from the Storm Cat line, getting graded stakes winner City To City out of a mare by Storm Cat himself, graded stakes winner Acting Zippy out of a mare by Future Storm, and grade one winner Collected out of a mare by Johannesburg (by Hennessy, also sire of Henny Hughes; and grandsire of Scat Daddy). He also has stakes winners out of mares by Stormin Fever, Forest Wildcat (sire of Wildcat Heir and D’Wildcat), Tactical Cat and Stormy Atlantic. This would encourage trying daughters of such as Giant’s Causeway (sire of First Samurai) and his brother Freud (broodmare sire of a graded stakes winner by a son of City Zip), Forestry, Yankee Gentleman, Tabasco Cat, Mountain Cat, Pure Prize, Bernstein, Bluegrass Cat, Harlan (sire of Menifee and Harlan’s Holiday; grandsire of Into Mischief), Storm Boot, Sir Cat and Catienus.

City Zip is half-brother to the brilliant Ghostzapper, a son of Awesome Again (by Deputy Minister), and Run Away and Hide is sire of graded stakes winner Heaven’s Runway out of an Awesome Again mare. Awesome Again might be brought in through Ghostzapper (giving inbreeding to Baby Zip, dam of City Zip and Ghostzapper), Daaher, Toccet and Awesome of Course. City Zip has already sired graded stakes winner Gleam of Hope out of a mare by Vice Regent – the sire of Deputy Minister – as well as stakes winners out of mares by Deputy Minister himself and his son, Touch Gold. From this line, it might also pay to try daughters of Silver Deputy (sire of Posse, Badge of Silver and Spring At Last), Dehere, Defrere, Deputy Commander, Salt Lake, Forest Camp, French Deputy and Service Stripe.

Out of mares from the Danzig branch of Northern Dancer, City Zip has stakes winners from daughters of Langfuhr, Lure, Ascot Knight and Polish Numbers. This suggests trying daughters of Belong to Me, Boundary (sire of Big Brown), Dayjur, Pine Bluff, Honor Grades, War Chant, Hard Spun, Exchange Rate and War Front.

City Zip has two stakes winners out of mares by Dixieland Band, and he has also sired multiple graded stakes winner Workin For Hops from a daughter of Citidancer, and graded stakes winner Hot City Girl out of a mare by Hook and Ladder. Other sons of Dixieland Band include Dixie Union, Chimes Band, Hook and Ladder, Dixieland Heat, Bowman’s Band and Dixie Brass.

City Zip has grade one winner Zipessa out of a mare by Horse Chestnut, and the multiple graded stakes winner Alert Bay out of a mare by Dushayantor, both from the Sadler’s Wells branch of Northern Dancer that might also be be introduced through El Prado (sire of Medaglia d’Oro, Kitten’s Joy and Artie Schiller).

The cross of City Zip out of mares descending from Icecapade – a three-quarters relative to Northern Dancer – through daughters of Phone Trick (by Clever Trick) has produced two stakes winners, and a there is also a stakes winner by a son of City Zip out of mare by the Phone Trick horse, Intidab. Phone Trick is also sire of Caller I.D., Mazel Trick and Favorite Trick.

From the A.P. Indy line, Run Away and Hide is sire of grade two winner Run Away out of a mare by Pulpit (sire of Tapit, Sky Mesa and Stroll) and graded winner Mico Margarita out of a mare by Mineshaft (sire of Dialed In and Discreetly Mine), which suggests mares by Malibu Moon, Congrats and Flatter, who are all bred on an identical A.P. Indy/Mr. Prospector cross to Pulpit and Mineshaft, as well as daughters of the similarly-bred Majestic Warrior.

Run Away and Hide is sire of two-year-old graded winner Ten City out of a mare by Rock Hard Ten, by the Roberto line stallion, Kris S. (also sire of Arch, Prized and You and I). He also has stakes winner Seeking Treasure out of a mare by Roberto son, Dynaformer (sire of Temple City, Purim, Point of Entry and Brilliant Speed). City Zip’s Champion Sprinter, Work All Week, is out of a mare by the Roberto stallion, Repriced, and other sources include Red Ransom and Lear Fan.

Roberto is a Hail to Reason line stallion, and from the Halo branch of that line, Run Away and Hide has a stakes winner out of a mare by Halo himself, and the grade two winning juvenile Albert’s Hope out of a mare by Saint Ballado (sire of Saint Liam, Captain Bodgit, Sweetsouthernsaint and Yankee Victor). City Zip also has a stakes winner out of a mare by Saint Ballado’s brother, Devil’s Bag (sire of Devil His Due and Diablo) and graded stakes winner Ready For Rye out of a mare by Halo line horse More Than Ready.

City Zip carries Blushing Groom through his sire, Carson City, and he has 12 stakes winners with Blushing Groom inbreeding. This factor is already present in Run Away and Hide, but he has graded winner Heaven’s Runway with a third cross. From Blushing Groom line mares, City Zip has sired a stakes winner out of a mare by Cherokee Run (sire of Yonaguska, Kafwain and War Pass), and has multiple graded stakes winner Unzip Me out of a mare by Arazi (sire of Congaree). Blushing Groom might also be introduced through Rahy and Mt Livermore (sire of Orientate, Housebuster and Peaks and Valleys).

City Zip is out of a mare by Relaunch, but he has already sired grade one winner Personal Diary out of a mare by Relaunch line stallion Tiznow (by Cee’s Tizzy, and himself sire of Tiz Wonderful, Colonel John and Gemologist) and a stakes winner out of a mare by Relaunch son Honour and Glory (sire of Put It Back), and Relaunch could also be brought in through Skywalker, Bertrando and Officer. There is also a City Zip stakes winner out of a mare by Glitterman, whose dam is a sister to Relaunch.
