Connect's The Alys Look Steals Silverbulletday S. Win

The Alys Look | Hodges Photography/Jamie Newell

After romping by seven lengths to break her maiden at third asking over this same track and distance Dec. 1, The Alys Look checked in second behind 'TDN Rising Star' Pretty Mischievous in the Untapable S. Dec. 26. Going for her third straight effort at a mile and 70 yards Saturday, the Brad Cox trainee hung a length back outside of pacesetter Hayunevano through fractions of :24.37 and :48.08. As that leader began to fade past the quarter pole, The Alys Look got the first jump to take command as her stablemate, favored Chop Chop challenged from the outside. The pair dueled the length of the stretch with The Alys Look digging in gamely to repel her rival despite drifting out close to home to lead in a Brad Cox exacta. With the win, The Alys Look received 20 points on the Road to the Kentucky Oaks.

Out of a half-sister to GSP Top of Mind (Curlin), The Alys Look has a 2-year-old half-sister by Mr. Speaker still to race behind her. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG.
