  • Run Away and owner Kaleem Shah after their win in the Barretts Juvenile Stakes

    Run Away Stays Sprinting in Bob Hope

    Kaleem Shah and Simon Callaghan feel Run Away is better suited sprinting at this point in his career, so he'll make his next start in the $100,000 Bob Hope Stakes (G3) Nov. 11 at Del Mar.

  • Collected works under Martin Garcia at Santa Anita Park

    Collected Impressive in Final Breeders' Cup Work

    After a relatively slow start to his six-furlong drill (his quarter-mile fractions through the first four furlongs were :25 1/5 and :49 3/5), the TVG Pacific Classic (G1) winner finished strong in the final quarter and hit the wire in 1:13 2/5.

    Barretts Juvenile Key Prep for Run Away

    Kaleem Shah's Run Away will make a relatively quick turnaround Sept. 23 for the $100,000 Barretts Juvenile Stakes at Los Alamitos Race Course, while trainer Simon Callaghan still has an eye on the Run Away and Hide colt's future.

  • Run Away (inside) soars clear in the Best Pal Stakes at Del Mar

    Run Away Heads Del Mar Futurity for Shah

    Owner Kaleem Shah is hoping for a sense of déjà vu Sept. 4 at Del Mar, where his Best Pal Stakes (G2) winner Run Away will head postward as the starting highweight in the $300,000 Del Mar Futurity (G1).

  • Run Away wins the Best Pal

    Run Away Dominant in Best Pal Stakes

    Without any asking from his jockey, the Simon Callaghan-trained Run Away breezed by the early leader to take command, and by the top of the stretch, the race was all but decided.

  • What's Going On Here: Turning Two

    Stakes results from the holiday weekend are a reminder of the importance of 2-year-old racing in the yearling marketplace...especially for the younger stallions trying to build their résumés and for sires that stand below the five-figure line.

  • Lady Aurelia pulls ahead of Bound for Nowhere at Keeneland

    Ward Contingent Set for Royal Ascot Invasion
