News flash!  Girvin should probably have shorter odds.

He’s won both the Louisiana Derby and Risen Stakes (his last races).  Prior to this he had a 2nd place finish at the Keith Gee Memorial Stakes.

Girvin also has one of the better post position draws at the 7 spot, which has produced six wins, the most recent in 2007 with Street Sense. There were seventeen in the money finishes from this position.

Girvin’s Louisiana Derby win had placed him atop the Kentucky Derby points list just a few weeks ago.

From ESPN.com:

His trainer, Joe Sharp, was so overcome with emotion in the aftermath of the race -- crediting his wife, the former jockey Rosie Napravnik, and Grady -- that he lost his voice. But he answered questions as gamely as Girvin was in the stretch.

"It doesn't feel bad," he said of having his first Kentucky Derby starter. Sharp said Napravnik, with whom he has two young sons and who gallops horses for him every morning, "has been a big part" of his success.

Girvin is "the best horse I've had," Sharp said.

His recent performance would seem to indicate this. 

While there might be better entries in this year’s Kentucky Derby, Girvin’s value early on was quite good
