Giant's Causeway Adds French Gr3
In France overnight, former Coolmore shuttler Giant's Causeway (Storm Cat-Mariah's Storm, by Rahy) added a group success when The Aga Khan's unbeaten US-bred daughter Dalkala (Giant's Causeway-Daltaya, by Anabaa) maintained her perfect record with a 4-lengths victory in the €80,000 (A$99,000) Gr3 Prix Cleopatre (2100m) for 3YO fillies at Saint-Cloud. Dalkala (ridden by Christophe-Patrice Lemaire for trainer Alain de Royer-Dupre) defeated fellow US-bred Poupee Flash (Elusive Quality-Modesty Blaise, by A.P.Indy) & UK-bred La Conquerante (Hurricane Run-Winning Family, by Fasliyev). Dalkala took her record to 3 starts from 3 wins for €69,000 (A$86,000) earnings.
