Argentina Yearlings: US$129k Giant's Causeway Colt
In the Argentine auction ring, John Fulton Bloodstock (acting for a group of American owners) paid top price of 570,000 pesos (US$129,000) for a colt by former Coolmore shuttler Giant's Causeway (out of Gr1-winning Mutakddim mare Luna Real) during the opening session at the 3-day Copa Bullrich Yearling Sale at San Isidro Racetrack in Buenos Aires. The colt (already named Undomiel) was consigned by Haras Chenaut. The same group of American owners also race last year's Argentine Gr1 Polla de Potrillos winner Chuck Berry (bought at this sale 2 years ago).
