Emily Ellen was foaled in 1907. Bred by David M. Look of Castleton Farm, she lived to the age of thirty-eight. By coincidence, Emily Ellen was born the day Look's father passed away. It was the elder Look who suggested the mating of her dam, Morning Bells, with Todd, a leading sire of colt speed. A good racehorse for the limited amount of racing she did, Emily Ellen is best remembered as a broodmare. Called the "Queen of Castleton," she produced fourteen foals in sixteen years by eight different sires. The world champion Spencer Scott, 1:57 1/4, is descended from Emily Ellen.
