US Sire Land Of The Giants Begins Stud Career In Peru
In Peru, US 5YO stallion Land Of The Giants (Giant’s Causeway-Notable Career, by Avenue Of Flags) will begin his stallion career during the Southern Hemisphere breeding season at Haras Alydar. Kentucky-bred Land Of The Giants (a US$370,000 yearling at the 2007 Keeneland September Sale) notched 3 wins & a placing from 6 starts over 2 seasons (including victories in 2 allowance races at Keeneland & Churchill Downs by a combined 17-lengths) before injury ended his track career (after being pre-entered for the Gr2 Suburban Handicap at Belmont Park in 2010). His 2nd dam Excellent Lady is a half-sister to Argentina’s 8-times leading sire Southern Halo.
