    He is stamping his foals--sorry if I was not clear. He is stamping his foals, quite a lot. They just look like his female side (Theatrical), not like Giant's Causeway.

    Thoroughbred stallion Niagara Causeway

    I had the pleasure of meeting Niagara Causeway yesterday, and some of his foals. He's a son of Giant's Causeway out of a champion daughter of Theatrical, who is herself out of a Riverman mare.
