What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

The racing world knows him as McCraken. His name was supposed to be spelled McCracken. His most loyal fans call him Crackers. I call him an easy toss in the 2017 Kentucky Derby.Read More
  • dirtybirds1022 · How can you call an easy toss for Mccracken but still want to use Tapwrit? Tapwrit didn't run a lick and beat up on a weak field in Tampa for the TB Derby. MC wasn't nearly 100% as he missed training but has now beat Tapwrit twice handily. MC is only going to move forward off this effort now that he should be more fit. Tapwrit is the easy toss for me not Mccracken. · 10 hours ago
  • dw90125 via Disqus · Holy Bandwagon. Always Dreaming may be a great horse, but you have a whole slate of promising 3yo coming into their own at the same time. Always Dreaming had one impressive race but otherwise hasn't justified the top billing he's getting. And I can make a similar argument against Classic Empire. Being the best 2yo doesn't mean you'll be a great 3yo. Much to prove. Irish War Cry is a very strong horse for the Derby. We can agree on that one.... · 10 hours ago

So many pundants columnist what ever seem to be lamenting it's a week class of Derby colts this year. Almost with a hint Disinterest it the race. I like the fact we don't have a clear front runner for a change. Actually makes it an interesting race and good betting race. Looks like a a lot of early speeed might even effect a horse like Gunnevera. Might run harder than he likes early to keep up with the field. Maybe a closer like Lookin At Lee has a shot. Needs a good a jockey change I think and an outside post to stay clean. Still seems a little green but the way he was pulled to cross two lanes losing momentum and still closed on the leaders was impressive.

There are now 5 CLEAR contenders for Kentucky Derby glory this year, and I can GUARANTEE you that one of these 5 WILL WIN: "Irish War Cry", "Always Dreaming", "McCraken", "Classic Empire" and "Gunnevera". Also there is one dark horse who could make a BIG impact if he gets into the race, and that horse is "Lookin At Lee". :-)
