Am wondering about the knock against this guy. Standing for paltry $3k in Fla, though seemingly doing better down under. Hasn't been bred to much from what I see. Anybody seen him? BC Juv Turf winner. Should get runners earlier than most High Chaps?

thx

It's really, really, really hard to warm up to him.

He never won another race after the BCJT, he was soundly thumped when Coolmore took him back to Ireland for the bigger 3yo races, and after being sold and brought back to the US for a 4yo campaign, he finished last in both of his outs. Of all the horses he ran against in the BCJT, none of them ever got close to Gr-1 company again. The best runners of the lot were Daddy Nose Best and Farraaj, both of whom topped out at Gr-3 level.

His dam has produced two other low-level winners despite being bred to the likes of Galileo, Hawk Wing, and Hurricane Run. Her dam's highest earner ran 8 wins in 78 starts as a handicapper in the UK, about equivalent to a $25,000 claimer here. Her one stakes-performing foal ran 2nd in a listed race at 2 and never got close to that level again.

And out of his three crops of racing age, none have shown much.

For a grassy Sadlers Wells-line horse in Florida near that price point, Senor Swinger is standing for $5k. While he won't win any champion sire awards anytime soon, his foals are at least finding their way to the winner's circle.

I think also, $3K is not exactly "paltry" for FL. You can get to better horses for less than that.
