Kaleem Shah's Run Away was the dominant winner of Saturday's G2 Best Pal Stakes at Del Mar, crossing the wire 3 1/2 lengths in front of Dia de Pago under jockey Flavien Prat. The juvenile son of Run Away and Hide, trained by Simon Callaghan, covered 6 1/2 furlongs over the fast main track in 1:17.91 to earn his first graded stakes victory and remain undefeated.

Run Away broke sharply but settled behind An Ocala Ten, angled just off the rail by Prat. An Ocala Ten moved out to a one-length lead, setting fractions of :22.13 and :45.10, as Run Away and Arawak followed in close pursuit. It was several lengths back to Master Ruler and the favored Serengeti from there.

Mid-way through the far turn, Run Away sidled up beside An Ocala Ten, then exploded away from that rival to turn from home with a two-length lead. All the way down the stretch, Run Away continued to extend his lead under little urging, crossing the wire for a 3 1/2-length margin of victory. Dia de Pago rallied after a slow break to finish second, and Fleetwood finished third. Master Ruler finished fourth.

Bred in Kentucky by Erv Woolsey and Ralph Kinder, Run Away was a $35,000 yearling purchase at the OBS August sale. He was pinhooked through the Barretts March 2-year-old in training sale to bring a final bid of $325,000, and rewarded his connections with a win in his first start. A listed stakes win in the Santa Anita Juvenile had Run Away off as the second-choice in the Best Pal, and the win improved his career record to three wins from three starts, with earnings of over $200,000.
