GIANT WRECKER (by GIANTS CAUSEWAY out of HOMEWRECKER by BUCKAROO) before the Canadian Turf Handicap G3 at Gulfstream Park 2007. He won over Host.

 

Giant’s Causeway—Storm Cat x Mariah’s Storm by Rahy—was Horse of the Year in Europe and placed 2nd by a nose in his only start on dirt in the Breeder’s Cup Classic to Tiznow in 2000. His oldest progeny are 5-years-old and he is already consistently at the top of the general sires’ list in earnings, stakes winners, graded stakes winners, and grade 1 stakes winners. He predominantly sires grass horses, but has had a few solid dirt runners such as First Samurai. His top runners are First Samurai, Aragorn, Footstepsinthesand, Shamradal, Maids’s Causeway, and Last Typhoon. All of these runners are best at a mile like their sire. He seems to only get turf milers. Giant's Causeway is extremely popular stallion who stands for $300,000 at Ashford Stud. According to the Coolmore stallion management philosophy, he is bred to as many mares as he can cover. He has 130-150 foals every year. Part of the reason that he has such good numbers is because of the number of mares he covers. On the other hand, his proportion of good foals is dismal at 4% stakes winners. Almost all his stakes winners are also graded stakes winners. If the horse is good it is very good. However, most of his foals are lower rung. If you are willing to take the huge risk of getting a dud but with a chance of a classy top level turf miler, then Giant’s Causeway is the horse for you.
