Kentucky Derby and Horse Racing at The Downey Profile®

Sway Away Breezes at CD


This morning at Churchill Downs, Sway Away put in his final workout for the Preakness, six furlongs in 1:13.60 (1/3), breezing.

On April 30, Sway Away breezed six in 1:14.00 (4/9) at CD.
On May 7, Sway Away breezed six in 1:11.60 (1/2) at CD.

Trained by Jeff Bonde, Sway Away fell just short of making the Kentucky Derby field at number 21 on the graded earnings list. Bonde also trains Twice the Appeal, who was under Calvin Borel in the Derby.

In his most recent outing, Sway Away finished fourth in the Grade I Arkansas Derby after making a strong middle move to strike the lead.

Garrett Gomez has been named to ride Sway Away in the Preakness next Saturday. Patrick Valenzuela rode him in the Arkansas Derby, and Gomez returns to the mount after riding Sway Away in the Grade II San Vicente Stakes and the Grade II Rebel.
