Kaleem Shah’s Run Away and jockey Flavien Prat win the Grade II, $200,000 Best Pal Stakes, Saturday, August 12, 2017 at Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, Del Mar CA.

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.
