Eurico Rosa Da Silva controlled the pace of the Swynford aboard Conquest Titan.

ETOBICOKE, Ontario - Conquest Titan ($3.60) won his maiden in style second-time out in the $125,500 Swynford Stakes for 2-year-olds at Woodbine Saturday.

Conquest Titan set moderate fractions in the seven-furlong sprint, before drawing away in the stretch for a 5 1/4-length tally, in 1:23.64. Dig Alittle Deeper nosed out Tuscan Getaway for second in the seven-horse field. 

Eurico Rosa Da Silva rode Conquest Titan, who collected $75,000 for Conquest Stables and trainer Mark Casse. 

“I worked him a few times, and he was doing very well in the morning,” said Da Silva. “Mark said to try to relax him, but if he’s the speed of the race, then play it by ear. Today, he was very relaxed, and ran beautifully. He has a beautiful stride.”
