Del Mar, CA (August 6, 2021) – Connie Swingle, the 2-year-old full sister to multiple stakes winners S Y Sky and Grazen Sky, who combined to earn over a million dollars, joined her siblings with a winner’s circle photo after graduating with her maiden special weight diploma in the 5th race at Del Mar.
Connie Swingle was second to the stakes-placed Drizella in her debut and she was favored to move up the board one spot today.
Stalking near the pace early, the Grazen filly moved up outside the leader going into the turn and came away well in front. She opened up through the stretch to cruise in the easiest of winners by more than seven lengths.
Connie Swingle, who was named for the International Drag Racing Hall of Fame member, is a homebred for Nick Alexander. Trained by Philip D’Amato, she and her stakes-winning siblings are out of the winning Sky Mesa mare, Sky Marni.
