Description: Girvin (KY) DK B/, C, foaled March 31, 2014 (Tale of Ekati - Catch the Moon, by Malibu Moon) follows his Grade II Risen Star victory with a win in the 9 furlong $1 million Grade II Louisiana Derby at Fair Grounds April 1, 2017. Jockey Brian Hernandez, Jr. and Girvin settled into stride racing in fifth along the outside around the Clubhouse turn and up the back stretch as stablemate Hotfoot set the pace. Girvin started to move up as they raced around the far turn. Local Hero was the first to tackle Hotfoot turning for home, had the lead at the top of the stretch and Girvin came at that one along the outside. Girvin took command at the eighth pole and went on to win by 1 1/4 lengths. Patch raced along the rail the entire trip and got the place 1 3/4 lengths in front of Local Hero. Hollywood Handsome missed the show by a nose. The Louisiana Derby is a Kentucky Derby Championship Series race and the first four finishers earned Points (100-40-20-10) towards a start in the 143rd Kentucky Derby May 6th at Churchill Downs. Girvin is 3-1-0 from 4 starts and he has earned $874,400 for his owner, Brad Grady. He was bred by Bob Austin & John Witte and he is being trained by Joe Sharp. Drawing by Daily Racing Funnies ®.
