Story | Jan 4, 2015 | 12:25 AMNever Stop Looking hadn't won a race since last January, but past performances were of little matter as he steered wide into the stretch and ran down his foes to win the Fire Plug Stakes, the second of four $100,000 stakes Saturday at Laurel Park. The winner finished a neck in front of Smash and Grab, with fast closer Cutty Shark another neck back in third. Bakken, the 2-5 favorite, sped to the lead but faded to sixth. Never Stop Looking covered 6 furlongs in 1 minute, 11.81 seconds over the sloppy track, with Roimes Chirinos riding the son of Langfuhr for trainer Claudio Gonzalez.

"I knew this race was going to be tough with lots of speed but I have a lot of confidence in my horse. He picked it up nicely off the turn and ran hard to the finish." The win was the second on the card for Gonzalez, who won the recently completed Laurel Park fall training title. "I told the jockey to wait and make one big run," Gonzalez said. "This horse really needed his last race. I knew he'd like the wet track and today was his day.
