Colt By Giant's Causeway out of Blind Luck. https://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php?fbid=10153764930780720&set=a.10153657178605720.1073741849.34057915719&type=1&theater
Saw his mighty effort in the Breeder's Cup , no disgrace there worked with an expensive filly sired by him, Art Viva but unfortunately Ben Cecil is a pale shadow of his great Uncle Henry

  • shores · I miss Sir Henry... what an unbelievable man and such an incredible horseman. · 346 days ago
  • Mary Z. · Arte Viva. 93 cents for the research. · 346 days ago
Giant's Causeway, was a giant. As tough as nails. Verrazano, has the same instincts. Please remain healthy.
He was a much better horse than people think....raced overseas so American's don't see his record.

  • travel_vic · simply a grass performer whose only North American start handicapped him by running on dirt · 692 days ago
  • rafirox · Yes. He won the Sussex Stakes, the Juddmonte Stakes, Irish Champion Stakes, and placed in the Breeder's Cup Classic. Top Turf performer, and he proved in the BC Classic that he could have been a good dirt performer. His progeny is competitive on dirt, artificial, and turf. Good horse. · 691 days ago
El Padrino could be the sleeper for the Derby. Great pedigree. This colt should love the Derby distance.
why way he retired after 1 race???
  • shores · He wasn't. Giant's Causeway raced 13 times, mainly in Europe, won 9 times, and was second 4 times, resulting in earnings of over 2 million euros. His biggest wins included the St. James Palace S., the Juddmonte International, and the Irish Champions S., and he was a game 2nd to Tiznow in the 2000 BC Classic. · 1094 days ago
  • railbird33 · shores, Nice summary of this great champion. His 2000 BC Classic run against Tiznow is number 2 in my book for most thrilling BC races. · 1094 days ago
Oh no, Giant's Causeway is high up on the list after 1 race in America, and so is Rock of Gibraltar, and Zarkava is way up there with no American races. If this list is going to include all the great horses on Planet Earth then why aren't Ribot, Brigadier Gerard, Nijinsky II, Allez France, Deep Impact, Sunline, Lohnro, etc., higher? Is this list for American horses or just any horse from anywhere?
