Grade II winner Silent Name   came through with his first winner when his daughter Silent Sue scored at Hollywood Park May 22. The filly won the 4 1/2-furlong maiden special weight race in :52.13 for a partnership that includes Robert Gramer, Jeff Hauptman, and Michael Nicolarsen (VIDEO).

Swifty Farms is the breeder of Indiana-bred Silent Sue, who is a half sister to stakes winners Liepers Fork and Offlee Swift and to stakes-placed Glitternmeporridge and is out of the winning Tiffany Ice mare Cold Porridge.

Japanese-bred Silent Name (Sunday Silence—Danzigaway, by Danehill) was a grade II winner in North America and a stakes winner in France. In North America, he won the Commonwealth Breeders’ Cup Stakes (gr. II) and the Arcadia Handicap (gr. IIT) and placed in three grade I turf stakes. He stands for $5,000 at Joe and Anne McMahon’s McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds near Saratoga Springs, N.Y.
