Freshman sire Run Away and Hide  had his first winner June 25 when the 2-year-old colt On the Go won a maiden claiming event by eight lengths in his career debut at Delaware Park (VIDEO).

On the Go, owned by Midwest Thoroughbreds and trained by Jamie Ness, the leading trainer at Delaware Park, defeated seven other 2-year-olds under Daniel Centeno. He completed the five furlongs in :59.36 on a fast track as the heavy favorite.

On the Go, out of the Tour d’Or mare Erin’s Tour, was bred in Kentucky by Draper Labhras.

Run Away and Hide was an undefeated and record-setting 2-year-old on the racetrack. After breaking his maiden first time out in the spring at Keeneland, he won the Kentucky Stakes (gr. III) at Churchill Downs and the Saratoga Special Stakes (gr. II), in which he set a new stakes record of 1:15.67 for 6 1/2 furlongs.

By leading juvenile sire City Zip, Run Away and Hide retired to John Phillips’ Darby Dan Farm near Lexington, where he stands for a fee of $5,000, stands and nurses.
