Monday, 5th August 2013

At Dusseldorf in Germany overnight, former Coolmore shuttler Giant's Causeway (Storm Cat-Mariah's Storm, by Rahy) added a group success when promising filly Penelopa (Giant's Causeway-Lady Linda, by Torrential) scored a 0.75-length victory for trainer Miltcho Mintchev in the €400,000 Gr1 Preis der Diana (2200m) for 3YO fillies, over fellow fillies Secret Gesture (Galileo-Shastye, by Danehill) & Adoya (Doyen-Akasha, by Dashing Blade). A 65,000 guineas graduate of the 2011 Tattersalls October Book 1 Sale, Penelopa shed her stakes race bridesmaid tag when taking her record to 2 wins & 2 placings (including last start's Listed BMW Preis Dusseldorf & 2012's Gr3 Zukunfts Rennen at Baden-Baden) from 5 starts.
