Giant Colt Wins Stanton Stakes
Lightly raced Aquaphobia (3c Giant’s Causeway x Pussycat Doll by Real Quiet) landed the $50,125 Stanton Stakes at Delaware at just his fourth start. With a win and two placings from his three previous starts, the Arnaud Delacour trained colt has always shown ability and produced a long sustained run from the rear of the field. He surged clear at the finish to win the 1 and 1/16th mile contest on turf by a length and a quarter. Aquaphobia is the best of three winners from dual Grade I winner Pussycat Doll and is the 164th stakes-winner for champion sire Giant’s Causeway.
