Giant's Causeway head shot

TDN Rising Star for Giant

Exciting prospect Tough Customer (2c Giant’s Causeway x Acquileia, by Arch) was labelled a TDN Rising Star following a slashing debut win at Churchill Downs.

Trained by Wayne Catalano, Tough Customer was well fancied to win following some sizzling track gallops and let nobody down when storming home to win the seven furlong maiden by five and a half lengths.

A $550,000 Keeneland September purchase, he runs for Gary and Mary West and is from stakes-placed Acquileia, a half-sister to dual Grade I winner Pomeroy.
