Additional Details:
At the beautifully landscaped entrance of Hollywood Park's Clubhouse stands Albert Stewart's famous statue of Swaps, with Jockey Bill Shoemaker up. Winner of the Kentucky Derby in 1955, the California-bred Swaps was king of the racing realm in 1956 when, at Hollywood Park in the most spectacular series of record-breaking performances in thoroughbred history, he set three new world marks and tied a fourth. Swaps was bred and raced by Rex C. Ellsworth, trained by Meschach (Mish) Tenney and ridden in most of his races by Shoemaker.
