Gigantos is Sired by Giant's Causeway and has a Dam of Dreamers Glory, by Holy Bull.

Gigantos is currently training with Brian Lynch, and we hope to see him racing in 2009.

Gigantos Finishes Third
August 14TH, 2010

Gigantos was entered in the first race of the day today at Woodbine, a 1 1/16th mile maiden special weight with a purse of $68,400. He hoped to build on his 2nd place last race and finish first. He went off as the favorite, but ended up third in what was essentially a 3 horse race. Because the favorites finished mostly out of the top, the result was quite a good payoff for any of the better handicappers out there. Just under $500 for the exacta, and just over $3300 for the trifecta.

Gigantos went off as track handicapper Jim Bannon's "Best Bet". He had this to say about Gigantos:

"GIGANTOS was getting his second start off the shelf July 23rd; he was fanned wide on the first turn then made a premature rush for the outside on the second turn to get the lead; he was run down in the lane but protected second against a troubled third place finisher; that event points him out as a contender."

Gigantos on Oaks Day - MSW Race
May 2ND, 2010

Gigantos was entered to run in a Maiden Special Weight race at Churchill Downs on Oaks Day, Friday April 30th. It was the second race for Gigantos, with Julien Leparoux on top for each start. With this being Oaks day, many top jockies were in attendance for this race.

I did not get to see the race. Gigantos finished in 8th place, described as "lacking a rally late". He did go off as one of the more favored horses in this race. Here's to hoping for more races to come from Gigantos.

Gigantos Races!
February 20TH, 2010

Gigantos raced in a Maiden Special Weight race on February 11th at Gulfstream Park. I was not able to watch the race, as it was not broadcast on TVG. It is a shame, as I was interested to see how Leparoux would ride him. Looks like he came out of the gates OK, but tired badly. It will be interesting to see who rides Gigantos in the future, and what his plans are for 2010.

Gigantos Injury
February 28TH, 2009

We got a brief ARV III update from Dave W. Gigantos suffered an injury, I hope its minor.

"Gigantos suffered an injury to the right hind foot after a kicking incident in his stall. He will be placed on stall rest with a radiograph evaluation every 30 days."
