Await The Dawn


Son of Giant's Causeway
Bay 2007, 16.1HH, To Stud 2013
Deceased

The Day has Dawned. Goosebumps Come Standard.

THE PEDIGREE

  • His sire Giant's Causeway, is the first stallion since Bold Ruler to win three American Championships.
  • Giant's Causeway is the sire already of five Group One sires, Sharmadal (12 Gr 1 winners), Footstepsinthesand, First Samurai, Frost Giant and Noble Causeway.
  • From the family of leading sires Warning, Commander In Chief and Deploy.

THE PERFORMER

  • Winner of six races, most times odds-on, every time easing down.
  • Cruised up on Group race debut by nine; took the Huxley by 4½, and shattered the hopes of three Group One winners by three at Royal Ascot.
  • “He will surely win a Group One.” Timeform.
  • Timeform rated 126+, same league as Champion sires Silvano, Exceed and Excel and Teofilo; higher than Dansili, Distorted Humor, Dynasty and Fort Wood.
  • "We thought he might be the best horse in Ballydoyle". Strong words from the world's strongest racing stable.

THE PHYSIQUE

  • Like Frankel, the pick of a foalshare between the world's best stud farms.
  • The world's best judges chose Await The Dawn. As their first choice.
  • But none of this can tell you what the movie can... watch above.
THE PICK OF THE POPS. FOR THE PICK OF THE HORSEMEN.
