+SPEIGHT SWIFTLY (c, 4, Speightstown–Dance Swiftly, by Danzig), a $200,000 KEESEP yearling turned $500,000 OBSMAR '15 juvenile after a :10 flat breeze, made up for lost time here as the 8-5 chalk. Straight to the front, the bay guided the field through splits of :24.64, :47.97 and 1:10.87. Sneaking away into the lane, he bobbled slightly while switching leads, but quickly recovered and dug in gamely to fend off by a head a furious late bid from Homewood Field (Candy Ride {Arg}), who sold for $275,000 at the same OBS auction. The winner is half to Paiota Falls (Kris S.), SW, $177,354; West Coast Swing (Gone West), SW & GSP, $175,827; and Freestyler (Street Cry {Ire}), GSP, $351,873; and a full to talented 'TDN Rising Star' Speightster, GSW, $351,873. His dam is an unraced full-sister to dual Hall of Famer Dance Smartly, and is also responsible for an unraced 3-year-old colt named Up the Tempo (Bodemeister) who was a $300,000 KEESEP yearling; and a yearling filly by Revolutionary. This is the powerhouse Sam-Son family of Smart Strike, Sky Classic, Regal Classic, Dancethruthedawn, Moreno, etc. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $22,800.
