5th Aust Winner for Giant's Causeway
Meanwhile fellow 1st-crop sire & former Coolmore shuttler Giant's Causeway (Storm Cat-Mariah's Storm, by Rahy) added his 5th Australian winner when favoured 2YO filly Causeway Lass (Giant's Causeway-Canny Lass, by Bletchingly) scored by 5-lengths over 1009m at Echuca in Victoria. Causeway Lass was a $155,000 yearling at the 2005 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney; she is "the 11th & final foal of former star racemare Canny Lass" (a triple Gr1-winning full sister to Gr1 Golden Slipper winner & Woodlands Stud sire Canny Lad) noted racenet.com.au. Giant's Causeway stood for 3 seasons at Coolmore Australia, covering his largest book of 148 mares in 2004 (resulting in 111 live foals that are now weanlings); his 2006 service fee at Ashford Stud in Kentucky was US$300,000.
