Grade 2 winner Senor Swinger will relocate to La Mancha Farm in Ocala, Fla. for the 2016 breeding season, where he will stand for an advertised fee of $5,000.

The 15-year-old son of El Prado was acquired by Michael V. Laurato from Hartley/DeRenzo and Partners’ PA Venture, which stood the horse at Diamond B Farm in Mohrsville, Pa.

Senor Swinger has sired five crops of racing age, with 22 winners and combined progeny earnings of over $1 million. His runners are led by steeplechase stakes winner All the Way Jose, as well as six-figure earner Only One for Me.

Bred in Kentucky by Bob Ackerman, Senor Swinger won 10 of 37 starts for earnings of $964,537. He did his best work on the turf, winning the Grade 2 Belmont Breeders’ Cup Handicap, the Grade 3 Arlington Handicap, Jefferson Cup Stakes, and American Turf Stakes, and three additional listed stakes races. He also placed in four more graded stakes.

Senor Swinger is out of the winning Kris S. mare Smooth Swinger, whose seven winners from as many runners also includes Grade 3-placed Romantic Notions and stakes-placed Swing to the Beat.
