Speaking Scout Pounces Late to Capture Hollywood Derby

Thoroughbred Daily News - 3 hours 19 min ago

Speaking Scout came running late to upset the GI Hollywood Derby Saturday at Del Mar. Cold on the board at 8-1, the gelding broke well from the 10-hole, but was content to race near the back as longshot Evan Harlan (Temple City) carved out opening splits of :24.51 and :49.86. Asked for more approaching the far turn, the bay launched a powerful four-wide rally in the lane, forging clear late to score. Spycatcher held second over Wit.

Fourth in both the GIII Kent S. and Bald Eagle Derby this summer, Speaking Scout could only manage seventh in the GIII Dueling Grounds Derby Sept. 5. A decisive winner of the Hawthorne Derby Oct. 1, he came up a half-length short of Cabo Spirit last out in the GII Twilight Derby at Santa Anita Oct. 29.

Pedigree Notes:

Speaking Scout is the second Grade I winner and fifth graded scorer for Mr Speaker. A daughter of SW It's Over, SP Miss Scout failed to get in foal to Cross Traffic for 2020, but had a Laugh Track filly in 2021. She did not get in foal to Runaway Ghost for 2022 and was bred back to that stallion this year.
