Ocean Swell was by Blue Peter, winner of the 1939 2000 Guineas and Epsom Derby and champion sire on three occasions. His dam was Jiffy, whose descendants include Kentucky Derby winners Tomy Lee and Genuine Risk. In 1944 Ocean Swell won the New Derby at Newmarket, the substitute race for the Derby during both world wars. In the latter part of 1944, he captured the Jockey Club Cup and in 1945 won the Ascot Gold Cup. Due to the shuffling of track venues during World War II, Ocean Swell is the only Derby winner to win the Gold Cup at Ascot since Persimmon in 1897.
