The stallion won or placed in 12 of 19 starts and earned $120,706. He was second in the 2007 Golden State Derby (G1). From two crops to race, Sir Runaway Dash has sired 12 winners from 23 starters and the earners of $479,403. They include stakes winners T Boy C ($149,383) and Perrys Runaway ($204,548).
