No Class' six stakes winners and four champions include 1984 Canadian champion 3-year-old filly Classy 'n Smart (by Smarten), whose produce record is not much less impressive than her dam's. The 1991 Canadian Broodmare of the Year, Classy 'n Smart is the dam of 1991 Canadian Horse of the Year Dance Smartly (by Danzig), Grade I winner and two-time American champion sire Smart Strike (by Mr. Prospector, and Smart Strike's full siblings Full of Wonder (2002 Niagara Breeders' Cup Handicap, CAN-I) and Strike Smartly (2002 Chinese Cultural Center Stakes, CAN-II).
Speightster's dam Dance Swiftly is an unraced full sister to Dance Smartly. Previously the dam of listed stakes winners Paiota Falls (by Kris S.) and West Coast Swing (by Gone West), she is also the dam of Speight Swiftly, a 2-year-old full brother to Speightster who went for $500,000 at the Ocala Breeders' Sales March sale of selected 2-year-olds in training.
Now 17 years old, 2004 American champion sprinter Speightstown has produced winners of major races all over the American distance spectrum. The son of Gone West had a big Independence Day as he is also the sire of Belmont Derby Invitational Stakes (USA-IT) winner Force the Pass. Force the Pass highlights Speightstown's ability to add his own speed to his mates' best attributes as he is out of Social Queen, a Grade III winner on the grass by the strong stamina influence Dynaformer. Speightstown has been among the top 10 American sires for the last five years (including a runner-up finish to Kitten's Joy in 2013) and is currently sixth on the general sire list.
How far Speightster will want to go is still a question. His pedigree is tilted more toward brilliance than that of Force the Pass, but his "aunt" Dance Smartly could go up to 12 furlongs, so longer distances than he has yet run certainly aren't out of the question. If he continues to develop as well as he has done so far, he could definitely spice things up in an already memorable year.
