Giant's Causeway Colt For Dam Of Jazil & Rags To Riches
Meanwhile Gr2-winning 11-year-old Deputy Minister mare Better Than Honour (who produced both Gr1 Belmont Stakes winner Jazil & last weekend's Gr1 Santa Anita Oaks winner Rags To Riches) gave birth to a colt by Coolmore sire Giant's Causeway at Hill 'n' Dale Farms in Kentucky, reported thoroughbredtimes.com. Better Than Honour (out of 1982 Gr1 Kentucky Oaks winner Blush With Pride, by Blushing Groom) won the 1998 Gr2 Demoiselle Stakes & will be bred back to Storm Cat. Her latest star 3YO filly Rags To Riches notched her 2nd straight Gr1 win with a 5.5-lengths victory in Sunday's Gr1 Santa Anita Oaks (8.5 furlongs); she was a US$1.9 million yearling at the Keeneland September sale & now boasts 3 wins from 4 races (also including the Gr1 Las Virgenes Stakes over 8 furlongs at Santa Anita on February 10) for US$360,100 earnings.
