First 2014 SW for Giant’s Causeway

Royally bred mare Naples Bay (6m Giant’s Causeway x Cappucino Bay, by Bailjumper) ended her career on a high note when taking out the Grade III Marshua’s River Stakes at Gulfstream on the weekend. Trained by Christophe Clement, Naples Bay got conditions to suit and took out the 1 and 1/16th mile event on turf by a length, her overall record now five wins and four placings from 18 starts with prizemoney in excess of $338,770. The highest priced weanling for her sire when selling for $350,000 at the Keeneland November Sale in 2008, Naples Bay is a half-sister to multiple Group I winner and sire Medaglia D’Oro being from the stakes-winner Cappucino Bay.
