$650,000 for Giant’s Causeway Colt

Giant's Causeway conformation

A colt by champion sire Giant’s Causeway was among the top sellers at the 2012 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Selected Yearling Sale on Tuesday.

Consigned by Dromoland Farm, the colt was purchased by Whitehorse Stables for $650,000 and is from former champion racemare Spain, a winner of nine races and $3.5 million with highlight wins in the Grade I Breeders Cup Distaff and La Brea Stakes.

A daughter of Thunder Gulch, Spain has been a terrific producer and has left five winners including Grade III winner Plan and Irish stakes-winner Dreamtheimpossible, who is also by Giant’s Causeway.
