Bred by Flaxman Holdings in Kentucky, Awesome Act was sold for $240,000 as a Keeneland September yearling. He is out of Houdini's Honey (Mr. Prospector). Awesome Act is by 1998 Breeders' Cup Classic winner Awesome Again, making him half brother to Ghostzapper (2004 Horse of the year), Ginger Punch (2007 Champion Older Mare), Wilko (2004 Breeders' Cup Juvenile winner), and Round Pond (Breeders Cup Distaf winner).

The bay colt is owned by Susan Roy/Vinery Stables. He is trained by British based Jeremy Noseda.

Two Year Old Season

Awesome Act won just once from six starts at age two, in a seven-furlong maiden race in England. He also had a second place finish in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf, beaten by 1 1/4 lengths by Pounced. He ended his 2009 season with a record of six starts and one win, two seconds, and a third.

Three Year Old Season

On March 6, 2010, he made his dirt and three-year-old debut in the Gotham Stakes, a Grade III prep race at Aqueduct. Awesome Act burst from the pack at the top of the Aqueduct stretch en route to victory. His next start was scheduled to come in the Wood Memorial Stakes.
