    Swale is an Old English term for a moist or marshy low tract of land.
    His mother was born with just one eye and named Tuerta - Spanish for one-eyed.
    He never had a chance to win horse racing's Triple Crown as he finished a disappointing 7th at the Preakness Stakes, his only race where he was out of the money.
    Dying at such a young age, he didn't get a chance to be put out to stud (most male horse's dream).
    His father was 1977's Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew.
    His Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes jockey was all-time winningest jockey Laffit Pincay, Jr.
    He died before reaching his full potential (but at least he went out with a bang).
    He posthumously received the Eclipse Award for Outstanding Three-Year-Old Male Horse for 1984.
    In Hallandale, Florida, an annual Grade II stakes race for three-year-olds at Gulfstream Park, was renamed The Swale Stakes in his honor.
