Giant's Causeway head shot

New Stakes-Winner for Giant

Champion sire Giant’s Causeway continues to churn out the stakes-winners adding a new one to his tally on Saturday night when Giant Payday (3c Giant’s Causeway x Pension, by Seeking the Gold) landed the $200,000 Mystic Lake Derby at Canterbury Downs. Prepared by Ian Wilkes, the son of Giant's Causeway settled at the rear and finished full of running to take the one mile contest on turf by a length.

A $100,000 Keeneland September purchase, Giant Payday runs for Lothenbach Stables and has the overall record of three wins and five placings from 12 starts with prizemoney of $238,220.

The 173rd stakes-winner for Giant’s Causeway, Giant Payday is a half-brother to stakes-winner Annual Report and is from minor winner Pension, a full sister to Grade III winner Happy Hunting.
