The road that leads to the 2018 Kentucky Derby is flowing with traffic. The grade 2 Best Pal Stakes at Del Mar saw the unbeaten Run Away do just that as he romped to an easy 3 1/2 length triumph. Now with three wins in three lifetime starts, this son of Run Away and Hide looks like a real contender for the Del Mar Futurity in September at the Seaside Oval.
