Giant's Causeway Adds US Black-Type
Former shuttler Giant's Causeway (Storm Cat-Mariah's Storm, by Rahy) also added a US black-type success when 4YO entire Mr Ryder (Giant's Causeway-Saudia, by Gone West) scored by a neck in the US$100,300 Listed Sussex Handicap (8.5 furlongs on turf) at Delaware Park. Mr Ryder (ridden by Ramon Dominguez for trainer Christophe Clement) defeated fellow 4YO entire Bin Bam (Deputy Wild Cat-Laurel Light, by Colony Light) & 5YO entire Mikoshi (Orientate-Tsurugaoka Matsuri, by Jade Robbery).
