Girvin Leads Ocala Stud’s 2021 Stallion Roster

Ocala Stud has set 2021 stud fees for its roster of 16 stallions for the upcoming breeding season, led by Girvin whose fee will be $6,000 S&N for his third year at stud.

Ocala Stud will welcome three new stallions in Grade 1-winning millionaires Win Win Win and Seeking the Soul who will both stand for $5,000 S&N, and also new is Dak Attack, a stakes-winning son of Ghostzapper, whose fee will be $2,500 S&N.

Girvin, a leading 3-year-old of his crop, captured the 2017 Grade 1 Haskell Invitational Stakes and registered back-to-back graded stakes in taking the G2 Risen Star Stakes and the G2 Louisiana Derby. An earner of $1,624,392 on the racetrack and a winner from six to nine furlongs, Girvin saw his first foals arrive in 2020. He has covered 273 mares in his first two books, and he was Florida’s most popular stallion of 2019, breeding 149 mares that season. He was bred to 124 mares in 2020.

Win Win Win won this year’s G1 Forego Stakes at Saratoga in impressive fashion, defeating four Grade 1 winners, including Complexity in a final time of 1:21.71 for seven furlongs. Last season at three, Win Win Win set a new track and stakes record winning the Pasco Stakes at Tampa Bay Downs, rolling to a 7 1/4-length victory in 1:20.89, running a 2 on the Ragozin Sheets. He hails from a deep Live Oak family and is a descendant of the influential Halo sire line. He will stand as a partnership between Live Oak Stud, Airdrie Stud, and Ocala Stud.

Seeking the Soul, a Charles Fipke homebred, enjoyed an illustrious racing career, winning the 2017 G1 Clark Handicap, the 2018 G3 Ack Ack Stakes and the 2019 G2 Stephen Foster Stakes at Churchill Downs. All told, he won or placed in eight graded stakes, which included runner-up finishes in the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile and the $9 million G1 Pegasus World Cup Invitational Stakes. On the board in 20 of 32 starts, Seeking the Soul bankrolled more than $3.4 million.

Like Girvin, Awesome Slew welcomed first foals in 2020. The versatile son of Awesome Again won graded stakes from seven furlongs to 1 1/16 miles during his racing career and earned $1,223,310 while winning or placing in 12 graded stakes. He will stand for $4,000 S&N.

Adios Charlie, a perennial leading sire in Florida, will stand for $4,000 S&N. The Sunshine State’s No. 1 sire in 2019, Adios Charlie is a top five sire again in 2020. Also standing for $4,000 S&N are Jess’s Dream who has first-crop 2-year-olds in 2020, Grade 1 winner Noble Bird who will be represented by first 2-year-olds in the coming year, and The Big Beast, Florida’s second-ranked first-crop sire of 2019 who is represented this year by stakes winner Hear My Prayer, as well as stakes winner and Grade 1-placed Up in Smoke.
