April 21, 2017

LEXINGTON, KY (April 21, 2017) – Brad Grady’s Girvin, winner of the Risen Star (G2) and Louisiana Derby (G2), will be spending the next few days at Keeneland to continue training for the $2 million Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (G1) on May 6.

“We are going to utilize the (all-weather) training track the next couple of days,” said trainer Joe Sharp, who brought Girvin to Keeneland from the Trackside Training Center in Louisville.

Girvin, who worked a half-mile in :47.80 at Trackside last Saturday and was scheduled to work again tomorrow at Trackside or Churchill Downs, headed 75 miles east in anticipation of heavy storms that are forecast for Louisville the next few days.

“We could push his work back to Monday,” Sharp said. “We are going to watch the weather.”
