What the Nation is saying about Speightstown...

As a runner, Speightstown developed into a champion. Besieged with minor injuries early in his career, the always talented chestnut finally put it all together as a six-year-old. In a half dozen starts that year, Speightstown won five, including two 1:08 flat performances. One of them was a track re...Read More
As I go through and look at the potential contenders for the Derby and the Oaks and their pedigrees, it gets me thinking – if money wasn’t an issue and I owned a mare, which sire would I have her bred to?Read More
  • cocoa2 · Speightstown seems to be based off his wives, as far as distance goes. Haynesfield was out of a distance running mare while Speightstown's sprinters are usually out of sprinters. He is a good pick for any mare, but if you're looking for a colt who wants 10f and the mommy only wanted 8f, I think Hat Trick or Street Cry would be your man. · 454 days ago ·

How does one even attempt to discuss in detail last weekend’s stakes extravaganza? And what words are left to describe the Zenyatta phenomenon that haven’t already been used?   Between the passion and energy radiating from the crowd, the cheers, the bedlam, and the kaleidoscope of colorful...Read More
I kinda liked Haynesfield; he seemed to be the clear speed of the field with the only question being if Rail Trip would be able to press the issue in his real dirt debut and wearing an aluminum pad. But everyone was saying that a son of Speightstown couldn't possibly win at a mile and a quarter, and...Read More
Franny Freud has had very few slips in her career; in fact she has never been beaten sprinting on the dirt. In a six-race juvenile career, she won four races, including the Ontario Debutante Stakes, Lady Finger Stakes and Fifth Avenue Stakes, her only defeats coming when second in the My Dear Stakes...Read More
