Royally bred entire Point Piper (5h Giant’s Causeway x Imagine, by Sadler’s Wells) claimed his first Black Type success when taking out the Harry F Brubaker Stakes at Del Mar on Wednesday night.
Now with Jerry Hollendorfer after originally starting his career in Ireland with Aidan O’Brien, Point Piper scored a half-length win in the one mile contest despite being unfancied by punters.
He has the overall record of four wins and five placings from 15 starts with prizemoney topping $100,000.
Point Piper is a sibling to Group I winner Horatio Nelson and Group II winners Viscount Nelson and Kitty Matcham being the fourth stakes-winner from Champion 3YO Filly Imagine, winner of the Irish One Thousand Guineas and Epsom Oaks.
He is the 156th stakes-winner worldwide for champion sire Giant’s Causeway.
