2YO From Giant's Causeway Sister Wins On Debut
Blue-blooded Ballydoyle filly Marvellous (Galileo-You'resothrilling, by Storm Cat) became the first winner for her well-related dam You'resothrilling when winning on debut at Navan in Ireland on Wednesday, reports thoroughbreddailynews.com. Marvellous is the first foal from You'resothrilling, winner of the Gr2 Cherry Hinton Stakes in 2007 and a full sister to outstanding racehorse and sire Giant's Causeway. Following a stellar turf career which netted 7 Gr1 victories, including the Juddmonte International Stakes, Eclipse Stakes, Sussex Stakes & Irish Champion Stakes, Giant's Causeway embarked on an equally fruitful stud career. Hitherto, the striking chestnut stallion has sired 135 stakes winners worldwide, including 76 group winners, with his best progeny including Gr1 winners Shamardal, Aragorn, Our Giant, Our Samurai, Ghanaati & Footstepsinthesand. Marvellous holds an entry for next year's 1,000 Irish Guineas.
