Man Of Iron Wins US Breeders' Cup Marathon

Monday, 9th November 2009

Former Coolmore shuttler Giant's Causeway (Storm Cat-Mariah's Storm, by Rahy) added a US feature success when Ballydoyle-trained 3YO colt Man Of Iron (Giant's Causeway-Better Than Honour, by Deputy Minister) rallied along the inside from the tail of the field to snatch victory by a nose against older rivals in the US$500,000 Breeders’ Cup Marathon (14 furlongs on all-weather) at Santa Anita. Man Of Iron (ridden by Johnny Murtagh for trainer Aidan O’Brien) defeated 9YO gelding Cloudy’s Knight (Lord Avie-Cloudy Spot, by Solar City) & Godolphin’s UK-bred fellow 3YO colt & favourite Mastery (Sulamani-Moyesii, by Diesis). Kentucky-bred Man Of Iron (owned by the Coolmore trio Derrick Smith, Sue Magnier & Michael Tabor) took his record to 4 wins & a placing from 10 starts for US$326,481 earnings.
