4. Irish War Cry

Derby Points/Rank:  10 – 9th

Race Record: (3) 3-0-0

Earnings: $295,460

Breeding: Curlin – Irish Sovereign

Owner: Isabelle de Tomaso

Trainer:  Graham Motion

Last Race: Grade 2 Holy Bull Stakes at Gulfstream Park, Finished 1st

Analysis: I made a comment in the preview for the Grade 2 Holy Bull that I did not buy the hype on this horse…that turned out to not be a smart comment. Now the wire to wire winner of the Holy Bull is all the way up to number 4 on my list, and is poised to move up even further. He did have things his own way in the Holy Bull, but it was still an impressive win over Classic Empire and Gunnevera.
