Speightstown juvy wins Pandera S. at Aqu
Wednesday, December 7, 2011
Dance to Bristol became Speightstown's latest stakes winner on Dec. 7 with a hard-fought nose victory in the $60,000 Pandera S. at Aqueduct. The 2-year-old filly trained by Ollie Figgins III was making her first career start away from the mid-Atlantic base of Charles Town and Laurel Park.

Prior to the Pandera, Dance to Bristol debuted at Charles Town then made three starts at Laurel, with a win and two seconds, including a runner-up finish in the $50,000 Smart Halo S., to her credit. Breaking from the rail in the six furlong Pandera, she dueled the entire way with 2-5 favorite Well Kept, digging in gamely in the stretch to get the nod on the wire. The final time on the sloppy inner track was 1:11.76.

Dance to Bristol has now won $74,600 for her owner Susan Wantz. The chestnut filly was bred in Kentucky by Mr. and Mrs. David Garner. Wantz purchased Dance to Bristol out of the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic 2-year-old sale this May. The filly is out of Dance to Dawn, who is a half-sister to Chief Honcho, winner of the Grade 1 Brooklyn H. and Grade 2 Excelsior H.

Speightstown is ranked seventh on the General Sire List as of Dec. 7, with $6.7 million in progeny earnings.
