A roll of the dice for the first-season sons of Giant’s Causeway came up sevens last season in Europe, with Shamardal leading the freshman sire list and Footstepsinthesand among the top 10. If the same or similar happens in the US this year, Giant’s Causeway will become the most important young sire of stallions in the world. And the two young horses who might help the chestnut son of Storm Cat fulfill that destiny are First Samurai and Aragorn, both G1 winners with their first crops coming to the races this year.
