Girvin Wins Gr1 Haskell Invitational Stakes

Tuesday, 1st August 2017

At Monmouth Park in the US, 3YO colt Girvin (Tale Of Ekati-Catch The Moon, by Malibu Moon) captured his maiden top-flight success when scoring by a head for trainer Joe Sharp in the US$1 million Gr1 Haskell Invitational Stakes (9 furlongs) for 3YOs, defeating McCracken (Ghostzapper) & Practical Joke (Into Mischief). Girvin’s victory earned him an automatic start in the Gr1 Breeders' Cup Classic later in the year and improved his record to 4 wins (including the Gr2 Risen Star Stakes & Gr2 Louisiana Derby) and 2 placings from 7 starts for US$1,574,400 in earnings. Girvin is likely to have his next start in the Gr1 Travers Stakes at Saratoga on 26 August.
