"Another famous dog from the kennels of J.T. Eggleston was "Tom Speedy", one of the pillars of the English stud book from the point of view of both work and looks. This dog was also exported to America where he had a great influence on American field trial stock. He had an exceptionally good nose and plenty of bird sense, but in America they were not too impressed with him, for then, as now, the method of working pointers in America is different from ours. He had been taught to quarter his ground in the English manner and not to hunt in the American way." -- Edmondson & Robertshaw, 1978, The Pointer


""Tom Speedy" was imported by R.E. Craig, Jr. of Vicksburg, Miss., and came from the kennels of J.T. Eggleston. His blook lines are in many respects similar to "Broom Hill Dan's", but he was two years older, having been whelped in March 1908. His dam was "Her Majesty", which was by "Ferndale Bang", the son of "Sandford Bang" and "Regent of Milton". The sire of "Broom Hill Dan" was also out of "Her Majesty" and I firmly believe this blood possessed the greatest prepotency of any in this line of breeding." -- Hochwalt, 1923, The Modern Pointer


""Tom Speedy", like all of the others, did not become popular in America. Mr. Craig campaigned him in field trials; with as little success, however, as any of the other dogs which were educated under English conditions. "Tom Speedy" showed in these trials that he had a very unusual nose, that he was a bird dog of the first magnitude, but he was broken to quarter his ground and not to hunt the country according to our American conceptions. Mr. Craig placed "Tom Speedy" with W.W. Titus, who at that time was making such a great success with his setter stud dogs. The recommendation of "Tom Speedy" by 'Uncle Billly' Titus had a certain influence and some breeders tood advantage of the dog. They soon discovered that they builded well. "Tom Speedy" sired real bird dogs." -- Hochwalt, 1923, The Modern Pointer


"One of the most prominent of his son's (Tom Speedy) was "Banker", a dog which John G. Drennan of Chicago really bred, for he owned "Spot's Ivy", his dam, but it was Beazell who brought the dog up, and showed him to the public the first time the dog came out. "Banker", however, like all of Beazell's dogs, was not broken early in life. Later the dog was purchased by Dr. E.M. Wilder, of augusta, Georgia, and was placed with Babcock. There was some hope that "Banker" would come to his own. In reality he showed in some of the trials and gave a good account of himself, but unfortunately when the dog was just about ready to prove his worth as a performer, he died. It was a loss to his owner and a still greater one to the pointer breeders of the country. It was another of Fate's playful little ironies and the same may be said of the sire, the imported "Tom Speedy", for just as his true worth was beginning to be appreciated, he also passed away; the date of his death being March 8, 1916. Luckily, however, not long before his death, Mr. Jones, who then owned "Lorna Doone", the daughter of "Manitoba Rap" and "Lady Ferris", bred this bitch to "Tom Speedy". Previous to that he had bred twice to "Comanche Frank" and produced "Mary Montrose", "Royal Flush", and that set, but at the time Jones bred to "Tom Speedy", he was still unaware as to what this first nick was going to produce. With him it was not so much oa matter of breeding for a purpose as breeding for expediency. Be that as it may, perhaps fortune again played its part, for had "Lorna Doone" not been bred to "Tom Speedy" on this occasion, the world would never have known what results this nick could produce. From this litter came the puppy which later became known to the world as "Great Island Ringing Bells", undoubtedly one of the outstanding pointer bitches of history. ... "Ringing Bells" is unquestionably "Tom Speedy's" greatest product, though his blood will be carried on through his son "Banker"." -- Hochwalt, 1923, The Modern Pointer
