Momente Passed?

Previously in this blog we had commented about the strange fact that despite standing at the same farm in Australia, Giant's Causeway never received as many Danehill mares as one would have thought reasonable. By our count, Giant's Causeway has only 16 named foals out of Danehill mares, a stunning number when you consider that Giant's Causeway stood at a high fee and he looked an option for high quality Danehill mares.

The opportunity that might have passed for Coolmore was highlighted again when the talented grey Giant's Causeway mare Juste Momente (AUS) scored a major upset when she came from near last at the top of the straight to take the group I SAJC Robert Sangster Stakes over 1,200 meters with hot favorite Miss Andretti (AUS) finishing out of a place. One of 39 stakes-winners worldwide for Giant's Causeway, Juste Momente - an A++ TrueNick rated mare - is his ninth group I winner and the first to win at the highest level for him in Australia.
