Group winner Swear retires to Spendthrift Australia


Sunday, April 9, 2017

Spendthrift Australia announced the addition of Swear, the Group-winning & G1-placed son of Redoute’s Choice, to its stallion ranks for 2017, as well as service fees for its entire roster.

“This is an exciting time at Spendthrift Australia. We have a lot of big things on the horizon as we continue to grow our brand. We are particularly looking forward to standing our first colonial stallion Swear, who was a stand-out yearling at the sales for us. Swear lived up to his looks as a Group winner on the racetrack, and we invite everyone to come out and take a look at him. You won’t be disappointed,” said Garry Cuddy, general manager at Spendthrift Australia.

A $725,000 Inglis Easter yearling, Swear won on debut as a 2-year-old and was a Group-winning 3-year-old. After capturing his debut at two, he remained undefeated with a victory in the $125,000 ATC Ming Dynasty Quality (G3) over 1400 meters at Randwick, making him the first Spendthrift Australia yearling purchase to become a stakeswinner in the farm’s colors. Swear went on to become Group One placed as a 3-year-old, finishing runner-up in the $500,000 Spring Champion (G1) over 2000 meters at Randwick. 

Trained by Michael & Wayne & John Hawkes, Swear retires to Spendthrift Australia where he will participate in the farm’s renowned “Share The Upside” program for a fee of $8,250 Inc. GST. He will also be offered at $5,500 Inc. GST Payable On Live Foal. By legendary sire of sires Redoute’s Choice, Swear is out of the dual stakeswinner and New Zealand champion 2-year-old filly Crossyourheart, and he's from the family of Hong Kong Sprint (G1) winner All Thrills Too and Group winners Adaline & Gotta Have Heart.
