Speightster gets Dwyer Win

WinStar Farm's homebred Speightster stayed unbeaten in style July 4, besting Longines Breeders' Cup Juvenile winner Texas Red by 2-1/2 lengths in the $500,000 Dwyer Stakes at Belmont Park.

The lightly raced 3-year-old son of Speightstown broke his maiden impressively in his debut at Keeneland April 17, and then took an allowance event at Belmont June 5.

In his first stakes start and first at more than seven furlongs, Speightster and jockey Jose Lezcano sat just off early leader Hollywood Angel, who set fractions of :22.83 seconds and :46.29 seconds through a half mile, then took over through six furlongs in 1:10.92, and never let the hard-closing Texas Red within a length. The winner hit the wire in 1:35.13 for the one-turn mile over a fast track.

"I got a very good trip. I had a clean break and I sat in second," Lezcano said. "When I asked him, he really took off. I don't know how good he is. Every time I ask him for more, he gives it to me. Even galloping out, he galloped out in front of everybody. He did it easy."

Texas Red appeared loaded for a stretch drive, traveling four wide on the turn after tracking behind a group of five bunched near the front in the backstretch, but he could not get within striking distance of Speightster, who is trained by Bill Mott.
