At Belmont Park in the US, former shuttler Giant's Causeway (Storm Cat-Mariah's Storm, by Rahy) celebrated a Gr1 success when 6YO entire Imagining (Giant's Causeway-Daydreaming, by A.P. Indy) scored by 0.75-length for trainer Shug McGaughey in the US$400,000 Gr1 Man O' War Stakes (11 furlongs) for 4YO+, over 5YO entire Real Solution (Kitten's Joy-Reachfortheheavens, by Pulpit) & 5YO Irish-bred gelding Grandeur (Verglas-Misskinta, by Desert Sun). This was Imagining's maiden Gr1 victory and took his record to 8 wins (including the Gr3 Red Smith Handicap) and 4 placings (including the Gr1 Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap & Gr1 Hollywood Derby) from 16 starts for US$813,114 earnings. "I'm happy for the horse, this is his first grade I. We've got a good, solid race into him now and hopefully he'll come back fine and we'll have a good summer with him," McGaughey told bloodhorse.com.
