Cannock Chase, winner of the Tercentenary Stakes at Royal Ascot in 2014 and the Grade 1 Canadian International at Woodbine a year later, fielded his first winner on Tuesday when the Mark Johnston-trained filly Run This Way made all under Joe Fanning in the seven furlong fillies' novice median auction stakes. 

Run This Way, who had the measure of her ten rivals, could yet be offered at auction as she is entered for the Tattersalls August Horses in Training Sale later this month. 

Owned by Saeed Suhail, who also campaigned her sire, Run This Way was bred by Rabbah Bloodstock and is the first winner out of the Dansili mare Prime Run, who was placed on the turf and all-weather. 

Prime Run is a half-sister to five stakes performers headed up by the 2005 Prix Morny heroine Silca's Sister and the Group 2 Mill Reef Stakes scorer Golden Silca. 

Cannock Chase, a son of the Belmont Stakes scorer Lemon Drop Kid, is one of three Royal Ascot winners out of the Horse Chestnut mare Lynnwood Chase along with Star Catcher and Pisco Sour. 

Run This Way hails from the only crop of Cannock Chase bred at Nunstainton Stud, as he stood the following two seasons at Worsall Grange, before taking up residence this year at Vauterhill Stud, where he is stood by owners David Maxwell and Andrew Bull.
