Grade 1 Hopeful Stakes winner Competitive Edge sired his first juvenile winner on April 11 when the Mark Casse-trained Reiterate, bred by John B. Penn, scored on debut in a 4 1/2-furlong maiden special weight at Gulfstream Park. Gabe Grossberg owns the Florida-bred filly.
“When they sent her from the training center in Ocala, they said they had pretty high hopes for her,” commented Mark Casse's assistant trainer Nick Tomlinson. “She's got a great mind on her. She's very, very classy.”
Competitive Edge's only other starter to date was Competitive Queen who ran a half-length second in a 4 1/2-furlong maiden special weight at Keeneland on Monday.
The following day at the Keeneland April preview, Kirkwood Stables' Competitive Edge filly out of Lefreakcestchic recorded the quarter-mile bullet of :21 1/5 seconds before selling for $235,000 on Tuesday to Shepherd Equine Advisors, Agent for Larry Hirsch.
Competitive Edge stands at Coolmore's Ashford Stud for an advertised fee of $5,000.
