Ambitious Return Spot for Speightscity

Travers 2012 logo

Joining the field for the 1 ¼-mile Travers is Team Stallion Racing Corp. and McConnell Racing Stable’s Speightscity, who will be making his first start since finishing second to Alpha in the Grade 3 Withers on February 24 at Aqueduct Racetrack.

 

“We were going to run in the Bernardini [overnight stakes on Friday], which was a more realistic spot for us, but the race did not fill,” said trainer Gary Contessa. “I’ve never seen a horse win a race like the Travers, at 1 ¼ miles, off workouts. This horse hasn’t run since February, but back in February he was getting to Alpha at the end of the Withers. In my opinion, he was closing the gap a little but. Who knows? You have to be in it to win it.”

 

Sepightscity, a son of Speightstown, is 2-1-0 from seven starts with earnings of $109,860. He has been training steadily at Saratoga this summer, and most recently posted mile works in 1:39.25 on August 17 and 1:40.19 on August 13.

 

Irad Ortiz, Jr., will ride, said Contessa.
