The strong demand for two year-olds by exciting young sire Competitive Edge continued at the Keeneland April 2YO’s in Training Sale with a filly selling for $235,000, the second highest priced breeze up filly of the sale.

She showed plenty of talent in the breeze up session galloping out a quarter in 21 and 1/5th. "She has always been a very nice filly. She went exceptionally well on an off track" commented Kip Elser of Kirkwood Stables.
