Giant's Causeway Adds UK Gr3

Friday, 6th May 2011

Also on the UK track overnight, former shuttler Giant's Causeway (Storm Cat-Mariah's Storm, by Rahy) added a group success when US-bred 4YO entire Await The Dawn (Giant's Causeway-Valentine Band, by Dixieland Band) scored a 4.5-lengths victory in the £50,000 (A$78,000) Gr3 Huxley Stakes (10.5 furlongs) for 4YOs & up at Chester. Await The Dawn (also ridden by Ryan Moore for trainer Aidan O'Brien) defeated Irish-bred 5YO gelding Distant Memories (Falbrav-Amathia, by Darshaan) & fellow 5YO gelding Forte Dei Marmi (Selkirk-Frangy, by Sadler's Wells). Await the Dawn now boasts 4 wins (also including 2010's Irish Gr3 Kilternan Stakes over 10 furlongs at Leopardstown) from 5 starts for £83,372 (A$129,000) earnings.
