$550,000 for Giant’s Causeway Colt

Champion sire Giant’s Causeway provided the second highest priced offering during the second session of the 2012 Keeneland September Yearling Sale when his colt from Questress sold for $550,000. Consigned by Gainesway and purchased by Maverick Racing, the colt is a half brother to dual Grade I winner Pomeroy. “He’s a very nice Giant’s Causeway and it looks like he has a stallion’s pedigree,” said Elliott Walden of WinStar Farm. “His brother Pomeroy is a stallion already and doing a good job down in Florida. He’s nice, well balanced and very athletic.”
