Champion sire Giant’s Causeway had just three entries in Book One at the 2017 Keeneland September Yearling Sale and all were sold at an average $733,333.
His trio of fillies proved hot property with the top seller at $875,000 a filly from Grade I winner Hollywood Story that was bought by Mayberry Farm and consigned by Hill ‘n’ Dale Sales.
The filly is a half-sister to stakes-winner Miss Hollywood and three other winners.
A full sister to Grade I winner Carpe Diem from top producer Rebridled Dreams made $700,000 for Beau Lane Bloodstock when bought by Tony Nerses and a full sister to Grade I winner Creative Cause and Grade II winner Destin from Grade I winner Dreams of Summer made $625,000 for Taylor Made when snapped up by MV Magnier.
Giant’s Causeway returned the third highest average of any sire in Book One.
