Breeders' Cup Preview: Speightstown
Saturday, April 02, 2011
Speightstown, sire of four previous Breeder's Cup starters, will double that total during the 28th renewal of this year's championships, Nov. 4-5 at Churchill Downs. Through the first 10 months of 2011, Speightstown is the nation's ninth leading sire, with 12 stakes winners taking 15 added-money events and more than $5.7 million in progeny earnings.

Sum of the Parts, who broke his maiden at Churchill Downs in May in his first start, will be part of the field for the inaugural Breeders' Cup Juvenile Sprint on Friday. Owned by Klaravich Stables and William Lawrence, Sum of the Parts was second in the $75,000 Kip Deville S., at six furlongs, at Remington Park in his most recent start.

The dark bay juvenile is out of the multiple graded stakes winning sprinter Enjoy the Moment, who earned the bulk of her money on the southern California circuit.

Speightstown's other three starters all run on Saturday, Nov. 5.

Country Day runs in a wide-open renewal of the $1 million Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint (G1). The 5-year-old horse has never raced on the Churchill turf, but has hit the board in five of his six starts at the distance on the grass. He is trained by Steve Margolis, who sprung an upset in the 2003 Sprint at Santa Anita with Cajun Beat.

Speightstown has Jersey Town in the $1 million Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile (G1). The Charles Fipke homebred turned in his best race of his career in the 2010 Cigar Mile H. (G1). Since then, he was second in the Grade 1 Forego S. at Saratoga.

Speightscity earned his way into the $2 million Breeders' Cup Juvenile (G1) with a devastating 11 1/2-length maiden win at nine furlongs on Sept. 2 at Saratoga. Speightscity is out of the three-time stakes-placed mare My American Girl, also the dam of stakes winner My Royal Girl.
