Creative Cause is a son of world-class sire Giant’s Causeway, winner of six Group I races in Europe and near winner of the 2000 Breeders’ Cup Classic-G1 at Churchill Downs. Giant’s Causeway has produced nearly twenty Grade I or Group I horse betting winners worldwide. He is also the sire of Kentucky Derby hopeful Battle Hardened.

Dream of Summer won 10-of-20 lifetime races and earned nearly $1.2 million. Among her horse betting victories were the Apple Blossom Handicap-G1, the A Gleam Invitational Handicap-G2, and the Rancho Bernardo Handicap-G3. She has produced three foals to race, all horse betting winners.


Creative Cause burst onto the horse betting scene with a dominant debut win at Hollywood Park on July 16, 2011. Racing in a five-furlong sprint over a synthetic surface, Creative Cause showed high speed from the start and pulled away to win by nearly five lengths at 6/1 horse betting odds.

Horse bettors were wise to him on August 7 at Del Mar, sending him away the 4/5 horse betting favorite in the Best Pal Stakes-G2 at 6 ½ furlongs. Showing the ability to relax off the pace, Creative Cause was much-the-best in winning by nearly two horse betting lengths. The runner-up, I’ll Have Another, would come back to win the Robert B. Lewis Stakes-G2 in early February.

On September 7 Creative Cause was again the horse betting favorite, this time in the Del Mar Futurity-G1 at seven furlongs. He didn’t have the best of trips that day and saw his winning streak come to an end with a third-place finish, beaten one length.

In October it was time to stretch his legs and try conventional dirt for the first time. Racing in the 1 1/16-mile Norfolk Stakes-G1 at Santa Anita, Creative Cause was up close throughout and drew off through the horse betting lane for an easy win over Drill, who had beaten him in the Del Mar Futurity-G1.

There was one final race on the horse betting schedule in 2011, the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile-G1 at Churchill Downs. Hung wide from the start, Creative Cause was always in with a chance but just couldn’t match horse betting strides down the lane with Hansen and Union Rags, finishing third and beaten one length.


Creative Cause would not race again until February 19, when he returned for the San Vicente-G2 at Santa Anita. The horse betting field was scratched down to only four starters, and Creative Cause was the 1-2 betting favorite. In a race that was clearly a horse betting prep, and without a favorable pace scenario, the public’s choice could only finish third, again beaten one length.

Creative Cause was entered to run in the San Felipe Stakes-G2 on Saturday, March 10, where he was installed as the morning-line horse betting favorite.
