A NZ Cup for a son of Rock N Roll Heaven!

Swayzee produced an outstanding performance to win the NZ Cup yesterday.

The son of Rock N Roll Heaven began brilliantly for driver Cam Hart and was able to make an early move to the front.

From there he ran them along and simply out stayed his rivals to win by two and a half lengths over race favourite Akuta.

Swayzee showed good talent as a young horse, however he has gone to another level since joining the barn of Jason Grimson.

His nine starts for him have resulted in nine wins which include the Group 1 NZ Cup and the Group 1 Blacks A Fake.

In total he has now won 18 times for earnings of $825,314.

Bred by Paul Kahlefeldt’s Redbank Lodge Standardbreds, Swayzee is out of the Art Major mare Lettucereason.
