Grade 1 winner Giant Oak to Millennium

GRADE 1 winner Giant Oak has been retired to stand at Millennium Farms in Kentucky, where he will stand for a fee of $7,500, live foal, stands and nurses.

Giant Oak retires as the winner of five of 31 starts, headlined by victories in the 2010 Grade 1 Clark Handicap and 2011 Grade 1 Donn Handicap. The son of Giant's Causeway was also successful in his first two starts as a juvenile and ran placed in the Grade 2 Breeders' Cup Marathon.

"We are excited to welcome Giant Oak to Millennium Farms at the conclusion of a stellar racing career," said Millennium Farms owner Ro Parra.

"He won two Grade 1 races on dirt, was Graded stakes-placed at two, beaten a neck, and is Giant's Causeway 's top-earning colton dirt, with $1.2 million coming on dirt surfaces. He ended his racing career with nine straight Thorograph ‘zeroes'. We plan to support him in the breeding shed."

Out of the Grade 3-winning Crafty Prospector mare Crafty Oak, Giant Oak is a brother to the Grade 3-placed Apple Martini.
