Speightstown - Dance Swiftly,
by
Danzig, 2012 CH

The Best-bred Son of Speightstown at Stud

A perfect blend of handsome and athletic, Speightster quickly proved on the track that his greatest asset was his elite speed. His combination of physical makeup and racing attributes make Speightster the closest thing to his sire Speightstown to retire to stud since Munnings.

Speightster was simply brilliant and untouchable when he was on top of his game. A romping maiden winner and TDN Rising Star in his debut, Speightster was unchallenged in his first three starts, winning at 6 1/2 and 7 furlongs before carrying his speed over a mile to decisively defeat Breeders' Cup winner Texas Red in the Dwyer with a 104 Beyer - one of the fastest Beyers from a vintage crop of 3-year-olds at the time of the performance. He enters stud with serious pedigree credentials to boot, being from the direct family of the late leading sire Smart Strike - and bred just like him too.

-Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott
