Belmont Double for Giant’s Causeway

Giant's Causeway conformation

Giant’s Causeway posted a double at Belmont with wins for Close Ally (3c Giant’s Causeway x Abundance, by Anabaa) and Imagining (3c Giant’s Causeway x Daydreaming, by AP Indy).

A homebred for the Phipps stable prepared by Claude R McGaughey III, Imagining had shown good ability when charging home from back in the field for two seconds at his first two starts and ridden more positively on this occasion he delivered the goods.

Imagining found the lead and travelled well before accelerating in the straight to win the 1 and 1/8th mile event on turf by five and a quarter lengths.

Imagining is the first winner for Grade II winner Daydreaming, a sister to the dams of Grade I stars Super Saver and Bluegrass Cat.
