TDN Rising Star for Giant

Giant's Causeway conformation

A $1.6 million OBS March 2YO Sale purchase, Carpe Diem (2c Giant’s Causeway x Rebridled Dreams, by Unbridled’s Song) earned high praise and TDN Rising Star status for his powerful debut win at Saratoga.

Trained by Todd Pletcher, Carpe Diem was sent out favourite and ran accordingly. He quickly worked through to lead and then fought off all challengers to forge clear and win the five and a half furlong maiden by two and a half lengths.

Carpe Diem is a half-brother to Grade I winner J.B.’s Thunder and stakes-winner Doncaster Rover being the fifth winner from stakes-winner Rebridled Dreams.
