Giant's Causeway Adds US Black-Type
Former shuttler Giant's Causeway (Storm Cat-Mariah's Storm, by Rahy) added a US black-type success when 5YO mare Abuela (Giant’s Causeway-Omi, by Wild Again) scored a 1-length victory in the US$50,000 Listed Ellis Park Turf Stakes (8.5 furlongs on grass) for fillies & mares in Kentucky. Abuela (ridden by Jon Kenton Court for trainer Victoria Oliver) defeated 3YO filly Angelica Zapata (Sharp Humor-Two Dot Slew, by Evansville Slew) & fellow 5YO mare Kiss Mine (Mineshaft-Kiss the Devil, by Kris S). Abuela (a US$400,000 yearling at the 2007 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga August Sale) now has 4 wins & 4 runners-up from 17 starts for US$140,264 earnings.
