david m. look
David M. Look, born in 1863 of a wealthy family, after his schooling took an interest in the trotting horse. He settled in Lexington, Kentucky where, in 1913, he purchased Castleton Farm, a Thoroughbred establishment at the time. Look converted it into a trotting farm where he bred many fine Standardbred horses, including the noted trotters Spencer, Spencer Scott and Emily Ellen, top broodmare of her day. Look did much to encourage racing and breeding of trotters when the sport seemed to be fading out. He was an officer in the Trotting Horse Club of America, the Grand Circuit and other promotional organizations. David Look died on June 21, 1945.
