Indiana sired horses are winning all across North America and one of the most successful this season is on the East Coast. Swansea, a four-year-old gelded son of Swan For All, has already scored seven wins this year in 13 starts and garnered more than $100,000 in purse earnings during the first four months of the year.
Owned by Dana Parham and Triple D Stables, Swansea earned a new lifetime mark of 1:54.3 at Dover Downs before reeling off three more wins in four starts at Yonkers Raceway. He then entered the Yonkers Raceway Standardbred Owners Association of New York Bonus Trotting series, sweeping the preliminary rounds with George Brennan in tow. Trained by Scott DiDomenico, Swansea got nipped at the wire by a nose in the $73,000 final to Rich and Miserable and David Miller in 1:55.1.
Swansea was formerly owned and trained by Lester Raber. He purchased the colt from the Hoosier Classic Yearling Sale for $6,500. Swansea was sold in September by Raber and quickly moved up the ranks, winning four races toward the end of the year and took a new lifetime mark of 1:55.0 at Harrah’s Philadelphia.
Swansea is currently the second leading trotter by money earned in 2019 this season according to The Horsemen and Fair World polls.
