No Cakewalk For McCracken

February 9, 2017

One of the early horses on most people’s Kentucky Derby lists is McCracken. McCracken has been extremely impressive to date and makes his much anticipated three-year old debut Saturday in the Sam F. Davis at Tampa Bay Downs.

The race is no cakewalk, however. It is being run over the “quirky” Tampa Bay Downs strip, a surface that can be heavy and tiring.

Todd Pletcher has two in there, including the undefeated Fact Finding who can prove to be a handful. He also runs Tapwrit with Jose Ortiz in to ride. Mark Casse also has a pair in there. It should make for an interesting and telling afternoon for McCracken.
