Rock Swan and Swan Bomb, a pair of trotting fillies sired by Indiana’s leading trotting stallion Swan For All, were victorious in their respective $31,500 Indiana Sires Stakes events for three-year-old trotting fillies at Harrah’s Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Wednesday (July 29).

Rock Swan and Trace Tetrick continued their winning ways and delivered as the heavy 1-9 favourite in the opening stakes division, recording a second straight stakes victory and equalling a 1:54.2 lifetime mark.

Leaving from post seven, Rock Swan was not hustled early and found a spot in fourth through a :27.3 opening panel. Tetrick gave his filly the green light just before the :57.3 half, and she ranged up to match strides with the pacesetting Skyway Tinacious (Peter Wrenn) at the third station in 1:26. When the field turned for home, Rock Swan was on top by three lengths and appeared to cruise to the finiish effortlessly, finishing three lengths in front of Skyway Tinacious.

“She’s always been very professional,” Tetrick noted of his mount. “She has grown up a little this year and grown into herself. She’s a very handy to filly to drive and knows her job.”

The Erv Miller-trained daughter of Swan For All and Jolly Jessica has now won two of four seasonal outings and 11 of 15 lifetime. Owned in partnership by S&R Racing and Anthony Lombardi, Rock Swan pushed her lifetime bankroll to $441,106. The victory was also one of five wins on the evening’s 14-race card for Harrah’s Hoosier Park’s leading driver, Trace Tetrick.

In the second division, Swan Bomb and Ricky Macomber Jr. used the long Hoosier Park stretch to their advantage to pull an 8-1 upset. Swan Bomb recorded her first stakes win and established a new lifetime best of 1:55.4.

Leaving from post two, Swan Bomb was uninvolved in the early stages of the race and waited patiently along the pylons in fourth. The 6-5 post time favourite, Hotel Whiskey and John DeLong, dictated fractions of :57.2 and 1:26.3 while the field remained in single file.

Turning for home, Macomber was able to find late racing room and urged Swan Bomb forward. Using a :28 final panel, Swan Bomb was able to track down the leaders and trot strongly to the finish to hold off a hard-charging Laney and Sam Widger.

Jamie Macomber trainee Swan Bomb recorded the second win of her sophomore season from six outs. The daughter of Swan For All and Tilly Bomb has now earned $34,685 in lifetime purse earnings and is owned by Dreamville Stable.

Indiana Sires Stakes action will continue at Harrah’s Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Thursday (July 30) with two $31,500 divisions for three-year-old trotting colts and geldings.

Thursday’s 14-race card will also feature a $10,000 guaranteed Pick-4 in races 3 through 6 and a $10,000 guaranteed Hoosier High-5 in race 14. Post time is 6:30 p.m.
