Debut Win for Well Bred Giant Colt Destin

A full brother to Grade I Santa Anita Norfolk Stakes winner Creative Cause, Destin (2c Giant’s Causeway x Dream of Summer, by Siberian Summer) made a winning debut when saluting at Belmont over seven furlongs.

The Todd Pletcher trained colt powered to the line to score by a length over the favourite Sea Wizard, a first crop son of Uncle Mo.

A $400,000 Keeneland September purchase, Destin runs for Twin Creeks Racing Stables and is the fourth winner for Grade I winner Dream of Summer.

Also saluting on debut at Gulfstream for Giant’s Causeway was the Todd Pletcher trained filly Lira (2f Giant’s Causeway x Lerici, by Woodman), who scored over a mile on turf by a length and a quarter on debut.
