Casual Look (foaled May 10, 2000 in Kentucky) was the winning racehorse in the Epsom Oaks in 2003. Owned and bred by William S. Farish III, she was out of the mare Style Setter, a daughter of Manila, the 1986 Breeders' Cup Turf winner and that year's American Champion Male Turf Horse. Her sire was Red Ransom whose career ended after just three races due to a tendon injury. Described by author Ken McLean in his 2006 book Designing Speed in the Racehorse as "a sensationally fast juvenile," Red Ransom was owned by Paul Mellon who owned his sire Roberto, winner of the 1972 Epsom Derby.
Casual Look was trained by Andrew Balding and ridden by Martin Dwyer in all her starts in Europe. In September 2002, she won her first race in her third start. Her next win came in her seventh start in the June 6, 2003 Epsom Oaks followed by a third-place finish in July's Irish Oaks. Following her seventh-place result in the Yorkshire Oaks and an eight in the Prix Vermeille at Longchamp Racecourse in Paris, France, she was sent to the United States. There, in the final start of her career, Casual Look ran third under jockey Robby Albarado in the October 3rd Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup Stakes at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Kentucky.
