Giant's Causeway Adds UK Gr2

Monday, 20th June 2011

Former shuttler Giant's Causeway (Storm Cat-Mariah's Storm, by Rahy) added a UK group success when exciting US-bred 4YO entire Await The Dawn (Giant's Causeway-Valentine Band, by Dixieland Band) scored a 3-lengths victory in the £100,000 (A$153,000) Gr2 Hardwicke Stakes (12 furlongs) for 4YOs & up at Royal Ascot. Favourite Await The Dawn (also ridden by Ryan Moore for trainer Aidan O'Brien) defeated fellow 4YO entire Harris Tweed (Hernando-Frog, by Akarad) & Irish-bred 6YO gelding Drunken Sailor (Tendulkar-Ronni Pancake, by Mujadil). Await the Dawn now boasts 5 wins (also including May’s UK Gr3 Huxley Stakes over 10.5 furlongs at Chester, plus 2010's Irish Gr3 Kilternan Stakes over 10 furlongs at Leopardstown) from 6 starts for £145,336 (A$222,000) earnings.
