Gulfstream Win for Talented Giant Filly

Well bred filly Pine Needles (3f Giant’s Causeway x Meridiana, by Lomitas) made it two wins in as many starts when she scored a tenacious win at Gulfstream on the weekend. A homebred for Jon and Sarah Kelly prepared by Christophe Clement, Pine Needles was a debut winner at the same venue on January 1 and kept her unbeaten record intact when taking the 1 1nd 1/16th mile allowance on turf by a head. A half-sister to stakes-winner Chamois and full sister to Grade I placed Centre Divider, Pine Needles is one of five winners from Grade I German Oaks winner Meridiana.
