Giant's Causeway--Marylebone, by Unbridled's Song

Download Full Pedigree (PDF)

Sloane Square is by Giant’s Causeway, who captured his first four races including a Group 1 in France. He captured six total Group 1s during his time on track and nearly upset the 2000 Breeders’ Cup Classic at Churchill Downs in his first start on dirt when just missing by a quarter-length to Horse of the Year and top sire Tiznow.

Giant’s Causeway has joined Tiznow as a leading sire, responsible for such runners as fellow Grade 1-winning stallion Aragorn, and European champion and French classic winner Shamardal, just to name two.

The female family of Giant’s Causeway contains such notable names as champion Dearly Precious.

Sloane Square is out of Grade 1 heroine Marylebone and is a full sister to Bow Bells, who romped when taking a Monmouth stakes in her most recent race last fall.

Marylebone is herself a full sister to the dam of Grade 2 victress Alpha Kitten and a half-sister to listed-placed Unigold.

This female family is also responsible for producing multiple Grade 1-winning millionaire Came Home as well as Canadian classic conqueror and Grade 1-placed Stephanotis.
