What Friends Say

Linda Rice Thoroughbred horse racing trainer and bloodstock agent.
“He’s [Max Player] becoming more professional all the time in his morning workouts. Anyone that watched his two races at Parx could see he ran pretty green. He got pinched out a little bit into the first turn and Dylan did a nice job of getting him back into the race and into the clear. He had a bit of a wide trip, but it was a great ride by Dylan. He’s shown us in the morning that he’s had a lot of run at the end of his workouts. It’s exciting. I would think the Wood Memorial would be the right spot."
Andy Serling TV Analyst and Handicapper for the New York Racing Association
"86 Beyer for today's Withers winner Max Player for @LindaRiceRacing. Another big step in the right direction for a lightly raced horse."
Dale Holly General Manager, K&G Stables, Breeder of Swingman
"We are excited about Swingman. He's got a good size, very correct and has good bone. He is an efficient mover. Tonalist is an up and coming stallion with great pedigree. The filly is strong bodied with good confirmation. Her mother is an AP Indy mare so we are optimistic in her future. Her sire is Munnings who is the leading active dirt sire for stakes winners in 2020 having a lot of success with fillies.""
David Ingordo Bloodstock Agent, Ingordo Bloodstock
[Re: Swingman] "I liked this colt when he was at your farm and has a good pedigree. The stallion will continue to do well, especially as the distances get longer for the 3yos. Looks like a "Classic" type prospect. Smallish, but very well balanced filly. Sire is white hot on the track."
