Aubrieta, Tantrum, newest stakes winners for Speightster
Sunday, October 31, 2021

Speightster’s promising two-year-old filly Aubrieta joined the ranks of stakes winners on Oct. 30 with a facile two-length score in the $125,000 Glorious Song Stakes at Woodbine. Earlier in the day, his 2-year-old gelding Tantrum captured the Best of Ohio Juvenile Stakes at Mahoning Valley, giving him a pair of new stakes winners on the day.

Aubrieta, bred and owned the Conrad Farms of Manfred and Penny Conrad, and trained by Mark Casse, rated in midpack early in the seven-furlong test before angling out to the three path before the quarter pole. She gained control in the stretch and drew away late to win impressively by two lengths, stopping the clock in 1:22.85 under jockey Patrick Husbands.

The Ontario-bred, who won her career debut on Sept. 11 and then finished second in the Shady Well Stakes on Oct. 8, is out of the Henny Hughes mare Amethea.

“She showed me after the race (the Shady Well) that she was the best horse in the race,” noted winner rider Patrick Husbands. “She galloped out like the winner. I called Mark (Casse) after the race and said, ‘Boss, she wanted to win so bad. She still thinks she won.”

As far as stretching out to two turns, Husbands said, “That (two turns) is what she wants to go.”

Tantrum won the 1 1/16-mile Juvenile Stakes by 2 ½ lengths going away. The bay was allowed to settle toward the back of the pack in the early stages and responded with a burst of speed three wide entering the stretch. Once he made the lead, he drew off late under brisk urging from jockey Malcolm Franklin.

Owned and bred in Ohio by Winblaze LLC, Tantrum, who is out of the Tiznow mare Go Go Tammy, is trained by Timothy Hamm.
