SWIFT WARRIOR, a 4-year-old colt from the first crop by FIRST SAMURAI, finished fastest of all to just miss nailing victory when third in the $150,000 Tampa Bay S.-G3 by 1/2 length. Unhurried early in the 1 1/16 miles turf event, SWIFT WARRIOR was fanned eight wide turning for home before launching a furious drive in the stretch to finish fastest of the 12 runners.

Winner of the Rushaway S. at Turfway Park at three last year, SWIFT WARRIOR has won or placed in 12 of 14 starts, earning $155,320 to date. He was bred in Kentucky by Paget Bloodstock, Nearctic Bloodstock, & Carhue Investments, and is owned by James Covello.
