$300,000 for Giant’s Causeway Colt

A colt by champion sire Giant’s Causeway from Lerici sold for $300,000 at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic 2YO Sale this week. Consigned by de Meric Sales as agent, he was snapped up Dennis O’Neill on behalf of his main client J. Paul Reddam. “I’m a breeze man--and I just loved his breeze,” O’Neill revealed “I thought he had one of the best breezes I’ve seen at any of the sales. Obviously, Giant’s Causeway probably made the price go up a little bit, he’s got good breeding, but I fell in love with him before I got here off the video and then I got here and I just really fell in love with him.” A $200,000 yearling purchase, the colt is from a half-sister by Woodman to the dam of Grade III winner Grasshopper.
