We already knew he got some good 2yr olds.....but they don't seem to train on at all. With the improved mares I'd be wanting to see some hitters as 3 and 4yr olds for sure.
I just can't knock Giant's Causeway. His books have been far from selective many years and he's still always managed to stay near the top of the sires lists.
This is not what the stats show. Giant's Causeway has the second highest lifetime CI of active sires, meaning he is getting the top mares. (Bernardini has the higest active CI which lends support to those who feel he is overpriced and underperforming) Plus, just by the sheer numbers of foals GC has sired he should be high on the sires list.
