Giant's Causeway Adds US Gr3

Monday, 31st March 2008

Also in the US, former Coolmore shuttler Giant's Causeway (Storm Cat-Mariah's Storm, by Rahy) added a group success when 5YO son Niagara Causeway (Giant's Causeway-Theoretically, by Theatrical) scored by a nose in the US$108,000 Gr3 Tokyo City Handicap (12 furlongs on the all-weather track) for 4YOs & up at Santa Anita Park in California. Niagara Causeway (ridden by Jon Court for trainer Leonard Powell) defeated fast-finishing Church Service (Pulpit-To Be Approved, by With Approval) & multiple Gr1-placed Big Booster (Accelerator-Waterside, by Topsider). Kentucky-bred Niagara Causeway took his record to 4 wins (plus runner-up in the 2006 Gr3 Cinema Breeders' Cup Handicap over 9 furlongs at Hollywood Park) from 20 starts for US$255,567 earnings.
