Noble Causeway will enter stud in 2008 at Crestwood Farm in Kentucky
Noble Causeway, second-place finisher in the 2005 Florida Derby (gr. I), will enter stud in 2008 at Pope McLean’s Crestwood Farm in Lexington, Ky., McLean announced Oct. 3.

A 5-year-old son of leading sire Giant’s Causeway out of the Seeking the Goldmare Mimi’s Golden Girl, Noble Causeway was a $1.15-million purchase at Keeneland’s September yearling sale in 2003. Trained by Nick Zito for My Meadowview Farm, he won or placed in 10 of 18 career starts while earning $360,010.

“His conformation is excellent and he was among the top 3-year-olds of his generation,” McLean said. "He’s a pheonomenal individual and a good size. He has an outstanding female family. His second dam is Classy Cathy, a multiple grade I winner who won the Alabama (gr. I), Ashland (gr. I), and Gazelle (gr. I), and we think he's got all the components to really excel as a stallion." 

Crestwood stands 10 other stallions, including Unbridled Energy, Petionville  , Taste of Paradise, and Sir Cherokee. Noble Causeway will stand for $5,000 live foal.
