GIANTS CAUSEWAY - THE IRON HORSE
In his racing days, Giant’s Causeway
was called the Iron Horse, and for good reason. During his
three year-old season in 2000 he rolled through most of
Europe’s legendary races, winning five group one’s
including the Juddmonte International, St. James Palace
and Irish Champion. In all, he won five group one races
and was named Champion Three Year-Old Colt in two countries.
In his only start in North America, he battled with Tiznow
down the stretch at Churchill Downs, falling just a neck
short in a thrilling renewal of the Breeders’ Cup
