The opening session of the 2013 Keeneland September Yearling Sale featured an outstanding colt by champion sire Giant’s Causeway that sold for $675,000 on Monday.
Consigned for sale by Pauls Mill as agent, the colt was purchased by Zayat Stables and is a half-brother to Grade I Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird and multiple Grade I winner Dullahan from top producer Mining My Own.
“He’s a beautiful colt with a lot of pedigree,” said Justin Zayat.
“We thought the price was right. We’re excited to take him home. He’ll go to Florida now to be broken by the McKathan brothers, and we’ll decide in February or March which trainer he’ll go to.”
