SWISS SKYDIVER (f, 2, Daredevil–Expo Gold, by Johannesburg) boasted a speedy worktab, including a half-mile bullet in :46 flat (1/10) last time at Keeneland Nov. 7, and opened up as the favorite for this debut, but floated up to 7-2 by post time. Caboosing the majority of the field as two runners trailed behind her, the chestnut saved ground through a half-mile in :46.67. Swung out for a four-wide bid approaching the far turn, Swiss Skydiver powered clear of her competition for a dominant five-length score. She is the ninth winner for her freshman sire (by More Than Ready). Expo Gold produced a full-brother to the winner in 2018 and a Danzing Candy colt in 2019. She was bred back to that California-based stallion. Sales history: $35,000 Ylg '18 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $31,760. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
