Keeneland Day-3: US$675,000 Giant's Causeway Filly
John Oxley paid US$675,000 for a Giant's Causeway filly (out of unraced Mr Prospector mare Prospect Of Joy). Oxley told thoroughbredtimes.com: "She's a very nice filly: very correct & well balanced. I love her sire & she just looks the part of a racehorse. I buy horses who I think can win Gr1 races." The filly was consigned by Michael Barnett's Blackburn Farm as agent for breeder Longleaf Pine Farm; her dam is a half-sister to stakes-winner Meiner Love out of Gr3-winner & English classic-placed Heart Of Joy.
