Giant's Causeway Adds US Black-Type
Former Coolmore shuttler Giant's Causeway (Storm Cat-Mariah's Storm, by Rahy) added a US black-type success when his colt Riviera Cocktail (Giant's Causeway-Starry Dreamer, by Rubiano) gained the decision in a 4-way photo-finish to the US$53,000 Listed Contested Bid Stakes (8 furlongs on turf) for 3YOs at Hollywood Park. Riviera Cocktail (ridden by Joe Talamo for trainer Neil Drysdale) scored by a nose from the gelding Pleasure To Ride (Candy Ride-All Pleasure, by All Gone) with a further neck to fellow colt Feisty Suances (Suances-Good And Hot, by Good And Tough). Riviera Cocktail now has 2 wins & 3 placings from 8 starts for US$77,818 earnings.
