A filly from the first crop of Grade 1 winner Girvin brought a top bid of $725,000 Monday at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic 2-year-old sale.

Donato Lanni, bidding on behalf of Michael Lund Petersen, signed the ticket for hip No. 88, consigned by Paul Sharp, agent and bred by Brereton Jones.

“I have been impressed by the Girvins I've seen,” Lanni said. “They look like they have speed and they look like they want to go two turns. This is a tough year for freshman sires because there are a lot of really good freshman sires. So he's against Justifys and Bolt d'Oros, but I've been impressed by what I've seen from him.”

The bay filly is out of Sweet Pistol, who is a half-sister to multiple graded stakes winner Thousand Words.

Girvin, who stands at Ocala Stud for $6,000, has a very impressive 2-year-old sales average of $125,435. His first winner as a sire came at Churchill Downs when Devious Dame captured a five-furlong maiden special weight race.
