Swan For All Wins In His $253,537 Matron Stakes Swan Song

November 15 - Earlier this week, Kentuckiana Farms announced that Swan For All would be standing at its Indiana facility for the 2010 breeding season for a fee of $3000. Swan For All demonstrated that he belongs near the top of the 2009 class of 3 year old trotters with an apparently effortless win in the $253,537 Matron Stakes tonight in 1:55.1f for driver David Miller. Leaving from Post 5, Swan For All tucked third in a 27.4 first quarter before quickly assuming the lead in a slow 57.3 half. Briefly challenged by Hot Shot Blue Chip on the backstretch, Swan For All simply lengthed his stride and assumed complete command in the stretch, where he went on for a very easy 2 length victory. In only 11 lifetime starts, Swan For All finished his short racing career 8 - 2 - 0 with $309,986 in lifetime earnings. An interview with trainer Erv Miller after the race revealed that the owners did not want to chance another injury to the big dark bay colt, and will retire him safely to stallion service for 2010.

Swan For All now is 10 - 7 - 2 - 0 with earnings of $183,218 lifetime.

Windsong Stable Soars Again in Sweden

July 29 - This was another great week for Windsong Stable horses in Sweden! Tonight at Solvalla, Q Forty Five (Muscles Yankee - Bax Machine) won his 150,000kr conditioned race in a very gutty performance, racing outside uncovered the entire way from Post 6, and finally getting up in the final strides to win by a neck. The time was 1:15.1 (mile rate). Sweden's biggest newspaper gave him a great write-up, posting photos of Q Forty Five with his trainer Daniel Reden and his driver. At 2 and 2, Q Forty Five was a multiple NJ Sire Stakes winner for Jimmy Takter before his export to Sweden. Plagued by sore knees and some breathing problems, Q Forty Five nevertheless has shown his courage by continuing his productive racing career.

On July 27, Swept To Victory toyed with a large field of top mare trotters, winning a $40,000 Open Mare Trot at Jagersro in 1:55f.

Play Right (Kadabra - Poetry) had a solid trip throughout to take second money while timed in 1:58.2 in his usual game effort for trainer "Friday" Dean.
