FIRST SAMURAI’S SWIFT WARRIOR IS NEWEST GSW

Winner of the Rushaway S. in 2011 and Saratoga’s Win S. in 2012, SWIFT WARRIOR earned his first graded win in the John B. Connally Turf Cup S.-G3. Setting the pace from the outset in this 1 1/8-mile race at Sam Houston, this 5-year-old son of FIRST SAMURAI continued that lead to the wire, opening up through the stretch to win by 2 3/4 lengths. In his final start of 2012, SWIFT WARRIOR was only 3/4-length back from taking Churchill’s Grade 3 River City H. He has now won or placed in 14 of 19 starts, including six stakes, and has earned $340,843. Bred in Kentucky by Paget Bloodstock, Nearctic Bloodstock and Carhue Investments, SWIFT WARRIOR is owned by James Covello and James Dolan.  He is trained by John Terranova II.
