"Speightster was an extremely fast and talented horse. He really reminded me a lot of another colt I had from that sire line, Elusive Quality. Both had brilliant speed and a rare ability to carry it over a mile."
—Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott
"I have a Speightster colt that is probably THE FASTEST HORSE I have at this point. He is a really athletic colt."
—Randy Bradshaw, TDN
"I WISH I HAD 10 OF THEM...Speightstown has been a very lucky horse for us...as we look at the Speightsters we see the Speightstown in them and when something works for you, you like to stick with it."
"On the track, they're ALL BUSINESS."
"I think that in terms of number of winners in 2020, the LEADING FIRST-CROP SIRE WILL BE SPEIGHTSTER. I could name at least half a dozen off the top of my head that the consignors in Ocala like."
—Justin Casse, TDN
"Another freshman stallion I like, who may be slightly under the radar, is Speightster. He was a very talented son of Speightstown and his offspring display many of the physical characteristics you look for in a good racehorse. [He] showed tremendous talent on the track and is from a deep female family in Classy n' Smart and Dance Smartly."
—Linda Rice, TDN
