From the Blood-Horse
Ocala Stud's Girvin sired his first reported foal when a Florida-bred filly out of the stakes-placed D'wildcat mare C d'Cat was delivered Jan. 4 at 1:55 a.m. The filly was bred by Grand Oaks' Brad and Misty Grady and Mary Ellen Coenen.
Girvin, by Tale of Ekati —Catch the Moon, by Malibu Moon , was campaigned by Brad Grady throughout his career with trainer Joe Sharp. He won or placed in five of eight graded stakes starts, including victories in the Gr. I Haskell Invitational in 2017, Gr. I Louisiana Derby, and Gr. II Risen Star Stakes, earning $1,624,392 in his racing career. Girvin covered 149 mares in his first book a year ago. The 6-year-old stallion's 2020 fee remains at $7,500.
Girvin was bred in Kentucky by Bob Austin and John White. Grand Oaks purchased him for $130,000 from Legacy Bloodstock's consignment to Fasig-Tipton's 2015 October Yearling Sale. The horse is a half-brother to Gr. III winner Cocked and Loaded and Gr. III-placed Pirate's Punch. His 2-year-old half-brother, a Tiznow colt bred in Kentucky by Stonestreet Thoroughbred Holdings, was purchased for $525,000 by Winchell Thoroughbreds from Warrendale Sales' consignment to the 2019 Keeneland September Yearling Sale.
The Jan. 4 filly is the third foal out of C d'Cat. The mare also has a 2-year-old Street Boss filly and a Dominus yearling filly. Both were bred in Florida by the Gradys and Coenen.
