100th Stakes-Winner for Giant

Giant's Causeway conformation

Northern Causeway (3c Giant’s Causeway x Getaway Girl, by Silver Deputy) claimed his first Black Type success at Hastings on Sunday when taking out the Richmond Derby Trial Handicap.

Trained by Len Kasmerski, Northern Causeway turned in a tenacious effort to win the 1 and 1/16th mile event by a neck, his overall record three wins and three seconds from 10 starts.

Northern Causeway is the first stakes-winner for his dam Getaway Girl, a half-sister by Silver Deputy to US Horse of the Year Ghostzapper and Grade I winner City Zip.

He has the honour of becoming the 100th stakes-winner worldwide for champion sire Giant’s Causeway, whose tally includes 19 Group I winners.
