Giant's Causeway Tops List Of 2007 Foals Sired In US
In the US, the Jockey Club's annual Live Foal Report revealed 10-year-old former Coolmore shuttler Giant's Causeway (Storm Cat-Mariah's Storm, by Rahy) sired the most live foals in North America this year at 168. Giant's Causeway stands at Coolmore's Ashford Stud in Kentucky, where his fee this year was listed as "private" (after standing for US$300,000 in 2006). Last year Giant's Causeway ranked 2nd on the Jockey Club list (though with 10 more live foals to total 178) behind fellow Ashford stallion Lion Heart (who produced 187 live foals last year, but doesn't make the top 20 this year after dropping to 109).
