$750,000 for Giant’s Causeway Colt

A colt by champion sire Giant’s Causeway was among the top sellers during the fourth session of the 2012 Keeneland September Yearling Sale when fetching $750,000 to the bid of Todd Pletcher. Consigned by Four Star Sales, the colt is a half-brother to stakes-winner War Flag and is from the Unbridled’s Song mare Good Vibes. “I thought he was outstanding,” said Todd Pletcher. “I’ve had a lot of success with Giant’s Causeway as a stallion. He’s a world leading sire. Any time you get one that looks like he does and walks like he does, you have to have a try.”
