Top Lot at Barretts for Giant’s Causeway
Champion sire Giant’s Causeway starred at the Barretts March Sale of Selected 2-Year-Olds when his two year-old colt from Dixie Dreamer sold for $1,150,000. A handsome chestnut consigned by SGV Thoroughbreds, the colt was snapped by Demi O’Byrne for the Coolmore partners and is the third foal of stakes-winner Dixie Dreamer. “He breezed awfully well,” O’Byrne said. “He’s a lovely looking horse with a beautiful head.” The colt was a successful pinhook having been bought for $150,000 at Fasig Tipton August as a yearling.
