Swan In Motion and driver Ricky Macomber turned in a dominant performance to find the winner’s circle in Thursday’s $60,500 division of Indiana Sires Stakes for three-year-old trotting colts and geldings at Harrah’s Hoosier Park Racing & Casino.

Leaving from post six in the field of nine, Swan In Motion was unhurried from the gate and settled along the rail in fourth. Alex Udell gave J-S Jasper his marching orders and he was the first to get a call through the opening quarter in :27.4. Flagman and Rick Plano grabbed a pocket seat while Simply Swan and Joe Putnam were next in line third.

When the field reached the half in :57.3, Macomber gave his mount the green light and he quickly ranged up to take command. Swan In Motion was on top at the third station in 1:25.4. and never looked back.

Using a :28 final panel, Swan In Motion coasted to the wire to finish nearly four lengths to the good in 1:53.4. Flagman finished second while Brigotto and Sam Widger rallied well late for third. As the heavy 1-9 favourite, Swan In Motion returned $2.10 to his backers at the betting windows.

Trained by Jamie Macomber, the son of Swan For All-Keystone Sadie has now won five of 15 lifetime starts while bankrolling $237,825 lifetime for owners M&M Racing and Norbert Joseph Maza. Swan In Motion was bred by Lyle Dean Slabach. For Team Macomber, it was one of three winners on the evening’s 14-race card.

Indiana Sires Stakes action will continue at Harrah’s Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Friday, July 17 with two $33,000 divisions for three-year-old pacing fillies.
