Sensitively was bought back for $95,000 as a Keeneland September yearling in 2013, and it's clear John Liviakis made the right call after the first-timer destroyed a full field of well-meant maidens. Bet down to 7-5 favoritism despite breaking from post 11 in a 12-horse field, Sensitively emerged from the pack to get the lead and cut out a quarter in :21 4/5. A host of challengers lined up behind her as she got to the half in :45 1/5, but she left them toiling in her wake and she and jockey Joe Talamo set sail for home with a full head of steam. The final margin was a geared-down 9 1/4 lengths. Sensitively is the second foal from the winning Dressmaker, the second foal from the G3 Tetrarch S. runner-up Scarlet Velvet. This is the extended family of the Group 1 winner Lujain (Seeking the Gold). Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $33,600.
