Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners and Madaket Stables LLC’s Speech tracked pacesetting fellow OBS graduate Venetian Harbor (April ’19) down the backstretch in Keeneland’s $392,000 Ashland Stakes (G1) on Saturday, then went after her on the turn. The pair turned for home on close to even terms, but down the stretch Speech was stronger, taking command a furlong from home and beating her to the wire by three lengths in a track record 1:41.26 for the mile and a sixteenth. It’s the first stakes win for the 3-year-old Florida-bred daughter of Mr Speaker, a two time OBS graduate, purchased out of the Summerfield consignment at the 2018 Winter Mixed Sale, then resold by SBM Training & Sales, Agent, for $190,000 at the 2019 March Sale after turning in an Under Tack eighth in :10 flat.
