Swear is a 2009, 15.2+ hh bay Thoroughbred gelding for sale from his owner/trainer. He is clean legged and vice-free. He loads and rides on a trailer quietly and stands quietly for the blacksmith. This is a been there done this kinda guy who is super cool to ride and who has a ton of personality. Swear loves to train but is not super competitive on the track anymore and is looking for his next challenge.
UPDATE October 2018: Swear was just so impressive that we decided to bring him to Bits & Bytes Farm for training. Our resident equine expert, Sarah Berhalter (Donner Syndicate), has an eye for horses and she just did not want Swear to slip away. Elizabeth and Sarah will have fun playing with Swear until he finds his forever home.
UPDATE February 2021: Swear was a surprise Valentine’s gift for Christene Robertson by her loving husband Scott! Christene has two great men in her life now!
He was so cool to take pics of was very proud and curious of what we were doing. When we got done taking his pictures flat-foot walked back to his stall. He really could go in any direction from trail horse to event horse and maybe even fox hunter. The sky is the limit since he has raced this long and still has clean legs.
Swear is extremely well-bred. His sire is Tale of the Cat who he looks like. Other great Thoroughbred sires in his family include: Storm Cat, Broken Vow, Unbridled, Raise a Native, Honest Pleasure, Fabbiano, Nijinsky, Alydar and Danzig who is a great sire of sport horses. Swear has a great personality and he is ready to become someone’s forever best buddy.
Swear has been SOLD and he will continue to board at Bits & Bytes Farm in Canton, GA. Give us a call and come by to meet Swear and our other Thoroughbreds if you are thinking of getting an off-the-track Thoroughbred for yourself.
Please call for pricing. Swear’s price will go up with training. If you have an interest in Swear, call and set up an appointment to meet him and take a test ride. We will not sell a horse to just anyone with the money. We carefully select the horses we sell and we work hard to make a perfect match. If you don’t call, we cannot help you. We take the gamble out of getting a Thoroughbred off-the-track. Learn more about how our Track Prospect Horses are priced on the main Bits & Bytes Farm website.

Frequently Asked Questions About Buying Our Thoroughbreds
What is the price of this horse?
Prices are not published because the price can go up or down depending on how the horse is racing. Most horses average $3500 but can be as low as $1000 or up to $5000. We will share the prices when you call. If the horse you call about is not in your budget, we may be able to recommend another horse that is.
What is the Jockey Club name of this horse?
Jockey Club names are not usually listed on the site as the sellers do not want calls from people who have not been screened by us for having the skills to help these horses into new careers. Most horses come with their Jockey Club papers and we will be happy to provide links to their race records and pedigrees when you make the decision to move forward with a purchase. Horses’ whose names are in quotes are not the actual name of the horse. That is the nickname we have listed the horse by.
Where is this horse located?
When we say this is a Prospect Horse, that means the horse is not at our farm in the Atlanta area. Prospect horses are still at the track or owner or trainer’s farm. We can tell you where the horse is when you call. Thoroughbreds move from track to track and to the farm and back. We cannot keep this web site current with so many horses listed and all moving around. That is why we don’t post the location. We are happy to share where the horse is when you call. We may have to make a phone call to find out where the horse is ourselves, but we are happy to share the info with you…if you call.

Prices change based on what price the owner has set. We add a small markup for our services. Prices can go up or down based on how the horse is racing or how quickly the owner wants the horse sold. Most Prospect horses are priced under $5000 with the average being around $3500. Big sound geldings, grey horses and tall horses usually cost more — but not always. Small mares are your best bet if you are price sensitive.

Lynn’s Vision aka Bubba at his last race – July 5, 2008. He was purchased by Melanie Eberhardt right after this race and brought back to Bits & Bytes Farm the next day. Melanie was riding him just one day later and he was a complete gentleman.
