Run Away and Hide filly takes Golden Gate Debutante

Look Quickly ran her record to a perfect 4-for-4 Saturday when she zipped to a 1 3/4-length victory in the $58,700 Golden Gate Debutante at Golden Gate Fields (VIDEO).

Shortly after the break, Look Quickly found herself on the lead with Rever de Vous. The duo locked up through a half-mile in :46.61, before Look Quickly took command at the top of the stretch to prove best. The bay filly clocked a solid time of 1:10.09 under Hall of Fame jockey Russell Baze.

“She carried me out there (on the lead),” said Baze. “In her other races, she broke good but they would outrun her (to the lead). Today, she broke good and nobody outran her.

“I was a little worried about Rever De Vous because I know she’s got a lot of talent, but just as we hit the turn Juan (jockey Hernandez) started asking her to run,” continued Baze. “I thought, ‘Oh, I’ve got this one,’ because my horse was just coming up under the bit.”

Look Quickly is trained by her owner/breeder, William J. Morey, Jr.

“She’s been just what the doctor ordered,” said Morey, who has recently had radiation treatments and surgery for nerve cancer. “We’ve come a long way. I’m on the improve.”

Morey said it’s “a strong possibility” that Look Quickly will make her next start in the $200,000 Soviet Problem S., going seven furlongs at Hollywood Park on Dec. 21.

Look Quickly, who captured the Juan Gonzalez Memorial S. in July, has now earned $125,230.

Run Away and Hide, who will stand next year at Darby Dan Farm for $7,500 live foal, was recently named by the industry-leading BloodHorse's MarketWatch as one of their value sires for 2014.
