'Resilient' best describes champion trotter Speeding Spur. The $1.3 million dollar earner returns to his birth place in 2020 to join the Southern Hemisphere's leading standardbred stud in Woodlands Stud.
From the start of his career 'Speeding Spur' raced at the elite level. A 'nine' time Group 1 winner, Speeding Spur raced and defeated the best square gaiters of his generation. Very few horses can lay claim to have a career that was brilliant from start to finish.
Speeding Spur has serious speed, stamina, a great desire to win and a very big heart!
His career saw him win the Victorian Derby and a Breeders Crown as a 3yo, he won six Group ones in New Zealand, amongst them the New Zealand holy grail of trotting a Rowe Cup and in 2016 he won the Southern Hemisphere's greatest trotting test the 'Great Southern Star' at Melton.
Not content with his 'down under' record, Speeding Spur was shipped to North America in 2019 and won the Crawford Farms Classic at Tioga Downs in 1.52.4, a US$ race of close to $150k!
He raced successfully against the best open class trotters the USA and Canada had to offer.
Speeding Spur's career is one built on toughness and a trainer and driver and group of owners who believed in him. Speeding Spur returned the love in spades!
In 2020, Speeding Spur succeeds his father in Pegasus Spur and joins the Woodlands Stud Stallion roster.
Woodlands Stud looks forward to Speeding Spur making an impact as a sire like he did on the race track in both hemisphere's!
CROSSES OF GOLD
Following on his his father’s footsteps, Speeding Spur will fit well into the Australasian market and be able to be crossed with a number of mares.
ARNDON - A large portion of our trotting mares are by Sundon so it is great that they can be crossed with Speeding Spur. Mares by DREAM VACATION are also from this line.
GARLAND LOBELL - Sires from this line are a likely match for Speeding Spur. Sires such as ANGUS HALL, MAJESTIC SON, MONKEY BONES and ANDOVER HALL will cross well with him.
OTHERS - While it is still early days so in time we are likely to see some trends develop, ARMBRO INVASION, LOVE YOU and sires from the SUPER BOWL line are also likely to be popular crosses.
