Made You Look makes daring move to take With Anticipation S. (G2)
Wednesday, August 31, 2016
Made You Look's thrilling move in the stretch earned the 2-year-old his second straight victory and first graded stakes win in just his third lifetime start.

The regally-bred colt, whose second dam is the immortal Serena's Song, is owned by Let's Go Stable and Three Chimneys Farm. He was a $360,000 purchase at the 2015 Keeneland September Yearling sale.

Breaking from post 2 in the 1 1/16-mile With Anticipation, Made You Look tucked in along the fence behind a trio battling for the lead. Content to sit in that spot, Javier Castellano waited until straightening for home, when he found a narrow opening along the fence and spurted through to the lead, pulling clear to finish the distance in 1:43.12.

“We were getting a beautiful trip; it was just a matter of whether he was able to find a spot to go through,” said winning trainer Todd Pletcher. “I thought for a young horse to shoot through there was pretty brave on his part. He’s been training really well, we were looking forward to a good effort, he got a good trip, and he delivered.” 

“I think (he'll run in the Oct. 1, G3) Pilgrim or train up to the Breeders’ Cup,” added Pletcher.

Made You Look is 2-1-0 in his three starts and has now earned $180,000.
