SPEEDY SCOT t, 1:56.4 1994 [1960-1990]
Foaled in 1960 at Castleton Farm in Kentucky and sired by Speedster out of Scotch Love, Speedy Scot earned his place in Standardbred history by setting records and siring top performers. As a two-year-old he won 14 of 19 starts and trotted to a mark of 2:01.1, a very respectable time for a trotting colt in 1962. The next year he stormed to the pinnacle of the sport by becoming the second horse to capture the Trotting Triple Crown. At four he continued to maintain his championship form, defeating such free-for-all stars as Su Mac Lad and Duke Rodney. The 30-year-old stallion died peacefully in 1990 at Castleton, where he had lived for all but the three years he spent at racetracks.
