Giant's Causeway (b. 1997) is a Kentucky bred Thoroughbred racehorse who raced primarily in Europe. In 2000, he won five straight Group One races then, starting from far back in post position 13, finished second after a thrilling stretch duel to Tiznow in the Breeders' Cup Classic. His performance that year earned him European Horse of the Year honors.

In 2001, Giant's Causeway entered stud at Coolmore Stud in Ireland, then the following year was sent to stand at Coolmore's Australia branch. His success led to the stallion going to Coolmore's U.S. unit, Ashford Stud in Versailles, Kentucky. In 2006, he stood for a fee of $300,000; his 2007 fee is private, but likely higher. In 2008 he will be mated with 2007 Belmont Stakes winner Rags to Riches.

Giant's Causeway is the sire of First Samurai, Footstepsinthesand, Oonagh Maccool, My Typhoon, Aragorn, Heatseeker, and Noble Causeway among others. In 2007, his son Mike Fox won Canada's most prestigious horse race, the GI Queen's Plate and Red Giant won the $1 million Virginia Derby.
