Who's Her Daddy?

Horse owners Bill and Lynda Gallagher will never know how they
were blessed with Amazing Philly (bottom right), a 4-year-old
fatherless filly who finished third in her debut at Philadelphia
Park last week. Amazing's mom, Speak Compelling (bottom left),
was once a fast 3-year-old--maybe a little too fast. Though she'd
been kept away from the males stabled near her, she ended up
pregnant, a condition no one knew about until she gave birth, on
Jan. 30, 2000, 11 days after finishing 38 lengths back in a race.
Blood tests on all 52 horses with access to her have failed to
turn up Amazing's dad. Maybe when she wins a big purse, he'll
come forward.
