Trainer: Ian Wilkes
Last Race: Grade 3 Sam F Davis Stakes at Tampa Bay Downs, Finished 1st
Analysis: Let’s face it: Mastery would have taken over the number one spot this week, but as he was pulled up right after the wire in the San Felipe, everything changed. Just minutes after the San Felipe, Tapwrit rolled to an easy win in the Tampa Bay Derby, which flattered McCraken, who defeated Tapwrit in the Sam F Davis. Also, McCraken returned to the workout tab and posted a solid effort that seems to show his small injury was no big deal. All signs are positive for him as of now.
