Speightstown filly wins rough Stormy West S.
Sunday, October 09, 2011
Exchange Funds avoided the trouble in deep stretch and was rewarded with a victory in the $60,000 Stormy West S. Oct. 9 at Belmont Park. Though she crossed the wire in third, 1 1/4-lengths from the top spot, the 4-year-old daughter of Speightstown was put up to first when both the winner and second place finisher were disqualified to third and fourth, respectively.

The action all started in deep stretch of the seven furlong turf event. Original first place finisher Ultimate Class and Legally Blanca, who crossed the wire in second, both bumped Wallis soundly. Wallis wound up fourth, and the top two were placed behind her by the stewards. Exchange Funds, meanwhile, was at the back of the pack early before launching a five-wide bid in the stretch. She finished with plenty of energy while outside of the incident near the wire.

This was the first stakes win for the Kentucky bred filly, who is 3-4-3 in 19 starts with $151,330 for DATTT Stable. She is out of Jetinto Houston, a winner of $282,885, topped by the Charles H. Russell H. and Irish O'Brien S. Jetinto Houston has four siblings that earned six figures, with three of them multiple stakes winners.

Speightstown, a top 10 sire this year, has 11 stakes winners ranging in ages two through five. His leading earner on the year is 3-year-old Indian Pond, who recently annexed the Carotene S. at Woodbine.
