Juvenile Stakes-Winner for Giant

Promising colt General Jack (2c Giant's Causeway x J'Ray, by Distant View) opened his account when scoring a commanding win in the $100,000 Shakopee Juvenile Stakes at Canterbury Downs. The Michael Maker trained colt improved off his debut second at Belmont, racing right away to win this seven and a half furlong contest by three lengths. A $200,000 purchase from the Keeneland April 2YO Sale, General Jack runs for Thomas Conway and his trainer. He is the first stakes-winner for Grade II winner J'Ray and is the 130th stakes-winner for his champion sire Giant's Causeway.
