Turkish stallion Red Giant (Giant’s Causeway) has died from old age, according to Turkish horseman Tarik Tekce.

A course record-setting Grade I-winner in his time on the track in the States, Red Giant initially stood at New Zealand’s Westbury Stud before being purchased by the Turkish Jockey Club in 2016, where he would remain until his passing. In total, he sired three champions, five Group/Graded winners, and 14 listed winners across both hemispheres with his chief offspring being 2017 Singaporean champion polytrack horse Nova Strike (NZ).

Far from the only accomplished runner in his immediate family, Red Giant was kin to MGSP-US Carnera as well as GSW & GISP-US Wyomia. This is the female family of Italian champion 3-year-old filly Proskona and the extended family of notable names like French multiple Group 1-winner Act One (GB) and 2023 Broodmare of the Year Modern Ideals (GB) (New Approach {Ire}). That mare is best known as the dam of U.S. champion turf horse, multiple Grade/Group 1-winning Modern Games (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) and his half-sister dual Group/Grade I-winner Mawj (Ire) (Exceed And Excel {Aus}).
