Racing Dudes Top 20 Kentucky Derby Rankings #2

1. McCraken

Derby Points/Rank: 10 – 11th

Race Record: (3) 3-0-0

Earnings: $190,848

Breeding: Ghostzapper – Ivory Empress

Owner: Whitham Thoroughbreds, LLC

Trainer: Ian Wilkes

Last Race: Grade 2 Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes at Churchill Down, Finished 1st

Analysis: Well that didn’t take long! Our number one ranked Kentucky Derby horse lasted just one week as Classic Empire faltered and finished third in the Grade 2 Holy Bull at Gulfstream Park. Now it’s up to McCraken who makes his 3 year old debut this weekend in the Sam F. Davis Stakes at Tampa Bay Downs. He’s the default number one horse for now, but must prove that ranking this weekend.
