Giant's Causeway Adds Canada Black-Type
In Canada, former Coolmore shuttler Giant's Causeway (Storm Cat-Mariah's Storm, by Rahy) added a black-type success when daughter Irish Mission (Giant's Causeway-Misty Mission, by Miswaki) scored a 0.75-length victory in the C$480,000 Listed Woodbine Oaks (9 furlongs on all-weather) for 3YO fillies at Woodbine in Toronto. Irish Mission (ridden by Alex Solis for trainer Mark Frostad) defeated favourite Northern Passion (First Samurai-A Touch Of Glory, by Golden Gear) & Awesome Fire (Strong Contender-Awesome Lass, by Awesome Again). Irish Mission (a US$375,000 yearling at the 2010 Fasig-Tipton August Sale) took her record to 2 wins & a runner-up from 8 starts for C$334,718 earnings.
