He looks like he just came out of the rain, lol. Love that horse SO, SO much. No words can express how happy I am that he's lived to such an advanced age. Happy Valentine's Day old man. You'll be in my heart forever.

Coolmore may have a whole bunch of new, hot young studs, but I think GC knows he's THE MAN.
If the whole horse population was suddenly turned loose on a farm with no fences, Giant's Causeway would be the herd stallion. 8-)

Lane's End posted that same photo of Indy on Facebook, saying he just had a bath.

Giant's Causeway is such a legend. Hopefully he stays sound and happy for many more years.

Da Big Hoss retired to stud in Ohio
Da Big Hoss, a Grade 2 winner and multiple course record holder, has been retired from racing and will enter stud at Poplar Creek Horse Center in Bethel, Ohio, for the 2018 breeding season, where he will stand for a private fee.

The 7-year-old son of Lemon Drop Kid finished his career with 12 wins in 22 starts for earnings of $1,551,696. Excelling at long-distance turf races, his victories include the Grade 2 Elkhorn Stakes, two editions of the Grade 3 Kentucky Turf Cup, the Grade 3 American St. Leger Stakes, the Grade 3 John B. Connally Turf Cup, the Belmont Gold Cup Invitational, and the John’s Call Stakes.

He owns track records for two miles on turf at Belmont Park and 1 1/2 miles on turf at Sam Houston Race Park.

Da Big Hoss is unraced since November 2016. He returned to the work tab in January after a nine-month layoff for three timed workouts at Gulfstream Park before the decision was made to retire him.

“He came up with a little tendon issue,” said Robin Murphy of Poplar Creek Horse Center. “He’s going to be fine, but he’s 7 years old, and having a spot for him to retire, that’s the best thing for him. He’s proven himself.”
