Runner-up in a June 9 Delaware maiden, Silver Speight faltered as the heavy favorite at Monmouth Park next time out July 6. The gray colt got the job done over the Presque Isle Tapeta Aug. 10 and was exiting a third at the Erie oval Sept. 3. Trying the grass for the first time as a 9-2 chance, the full-brother to Mullins Beach, MSW & MGSP, $505,255, caboosed the field before getting under way--with lots to do--at the quarter pole. But the $100,000 KEESEP yearling inhaled his rivals in the span of the next 220 yards and widened away to score by a most-impressive 5 3/4 lengths. Sonny Inspired (Artie Schiller) was second best. Lifetime Record: 5-2-1-1, $52,640.
