Graded stakes-placed American Pastime (Tapizar–Ryan's Inheritance, by Valid Expectations) will stand the 2022 breeding season at Swifty Farms in Seymour, IN, commanding a fee of $1,500 LFSN.
A 'TDN Rising Star', the speedy Bob Hess, Jr. trainee won three of his first five starts before finishing second in the 2017 GIII Gallant Bob S. He was fourth next out in the GI Breeders' Cup Sprint.
“His best attribute is his speed, but his personality is unparalleled to any horse I've ever owned,” said owner Mike Mowrey. “He's a very smart horse–he's calm, cool and collected, but when he got on the track, he meant business. If he passes on his speed and his personality, I think his foals will be pretty precocious.”
Swifty General Manager Jerri Harmon added, “We think the addition of American Pastime to our roster will expand the offerings Swifty Farms has, as well as bring a new set of bloodlines to the state. He's settled in quite well and we're looking forward to seeing what his breeding season brings us.”
