LOUISIANA'S LEADING SIRE OF 2023
GIANT'S CAUSEWAY - REBRIDLED DREAMS, BY UNBRIDLED'S SONG
DOMINANT G1 WINNER AT 2 & 3 BY GIANT'S CAUSEWAY
SEIZE THE DAY
CARPE DIEM possessed the combination of speed, precociousness, and Grade 1 dirt ability that hasn't been matched by over 2,000 horses of racing age sired by the great GIANT'S CAUSEWAY that came before him.
From a record-breaking sale topper, to a TDN Rising Star-worthy debut at Saratoga, all the way up to his second Grade 1 triumph in the $1 million Blue Grass Stakes S.-G1 that made him one of the favorites for the prestigious Kentucky Derby-G1 among one of the best crops of 3-year-olds the industry has seen in recent history... Expectations have always been at an elite level for CARPE DIEM—and now he will look to meet them yet again as one of North America's most exciting young stallions.
