US Gr3 Winner For Giant's Causeway
Charm The Giant (Giant's Causeway-Olympic Charmer, by Olympio), an Irish-bred daughter of Coolmore Stud's stallion and former shuttler Giant's Causeway (Storm Cat-Mariah's Storm, by Rahy), put up an impressive performance at Hollywood Park's meeting in California to win the Gr3 Wilshire Handicap (1600m) on turf. Trained by Ron McAnally, whose wife bred & owns the 5YO mare, Charm The Giant's winning margin was 1.5 lengths after coming from well back with 200m to run, and gave her consecutive stakes wins. Placings went to fellow 5YOs Sohgol (Singspiel-Arruhan, by Mujtahid) & Ghurra (War Chant-Futuh, by Dieses). Charm The Giant was ridden by Michael Baze, and now has 6 wins from 13 starts.
