Irish Derby Winner 'Swallow Due at Hollywood

(from Hollywood Park notes)
Grey Swallow, winner of the 2004 Irish Derby (Ire-I), is scheduled to arrive at Hollywood Park Monday for the $250,000 Jim Murray Memorial Handicap (gr. IIT) on May 13.

The 5-year-old gray horse also won the Tattersalls Gold Cup (Ire-I) at The Curragh last May. He has captured five of 12 starts and earned $1,417,293.

The son of Daylami is trained by Dermot Weld and has been ridden by Patrick Smullen in all his starts. He finished third in the Canadian International (Can-I) at Woodbine last October in his last start, his first outing in North America.

Grey Swallow will remain in quarantine for two days before being transferred to the isolation barn Wednesday. The Jim Murray will be run at 1 ½ miles on turf.
