Creative Cause, an early candidate for Kentucky Derby 2012, began his career in smashing fashion with a facile debut victory at Hollywood Park on July 16.

The Kentucky-bred son of Giant’s Causeway, out of stakes winning Siberian Summer mare Dream of Summer, is owned by Heinz Steinmann and trained by Mike Harrington.
Creative Cause broke from the rail in the 5th race at Hollywood Park on Saturday and battled on the pace along the inside from the outset. Jockey Rafael Bejarano set him down for the drive and he kicked clear under a hand ride to win by 4-3/4 lengths. He dashed five furlongs in :56.90 and garnered a strong 98 BSF.

The promising colt will likely head to Del Mar for an upcoming juvenile stakes assignment, with the Grade 1 Del Mar Futurity on Sept 7 a likely summer target.
