Making his stakes debut, RETROSPECTION fought through contact and tight quarters in the stretch to prevail in the $100,000 male division of the Hoosier Breeders Sophomore S. The 3-year-old son of DAAHER raced off the front runners for the first half of this 1 1/16-mile contest. He began his rally along the inside on the far turn, was squeezed in between rivals at the top of the stretch as he challenged for the lead, then battled head-to-head with another to the wire to win in a photo finish by a head. In his two previous starts this year against older horses in allowance company, RETROPSECTION finished runner-up, but then turned the tables on the winners who finished fifth and seventh today. Last year as a juvenile he won a Maiden Special Weight his second career start. Out of the Silver Hawk mare Atherbest, RETROSPECTION was bred by Randy Burkett, is owned by Beth Burkett and trained by Michael Maker.
