Regally Bred Collector’s Item Colt
Giant’s Causeway built a reputation as the Iron Horse for his durability and success on the racetrack at the highest levels, and he carried that right over to his stud career as one of the best stallions of the last 20 years. This colt is a collector’s item—one of just four foals from Giant’s Causeway’s final crop.
If Giant’s Causeway was the Iron Horse, this could very well be the “Iron Monster”—he is a giant, imposing yearling colt and one that our team, trainer Dale Romans and his client Dennis Albaugh felt compelled to team up to buy.
Dale and the Albaugh Family Stable have more than a little history with Giant’s Causeway. Two of Albaugh’s best horses have been Grade 1 winner Brody’s Cause and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile runner-up Not This Time, both sons of Giant’s Causeway. Dale trained both of them and will receive the new colt.
Not This Time is off to a blazing start in his stallion career, siring last weekend’s Grade 1 Del Mar Debutante winner Princess Noor. And here comes Brody’s Cause, another first-crop sire who last weekend was represented by Sittin’ On Go, winner of the Grade 3 Iroquois Stakes at Churchill Downs for the combination of Albaugh and Romans.
“You can say I am a fan of Giant’s Causeway,” Dale Romans said with a sly grin. “Of course I was hoping to find a nice one from his last crop. Turns out he had, in my mind, the best colt in the entire sale.”
The colt is a half brother to Grade 2 winner Isotherm and Grade 1-placed Gio Game.
Price includes all acquisition costs and all training, veterinary, and insurance expenses until January 1, 2022.
This horse is a rock star. There was one horse at the sale that I wanted and we got him. I’ve had a lot of luck with Giant’s Causeways, and this colt looks the part. He’s a Derby horse.Trainer Dale Romans
