McCraken Resumes Galloping, Blue Grass Still the Target

Janis Whitham's unbeaten homebred McCraken has resumed galloping at Palm Meadows Training Center the past few days and remains on track to start in the Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (G2) at Keeneland April 8 after emerging from a half-mile workout on Feb. 27 with a slight strain to his left front ankle.

McCraken Faces Short Field in Matt Winn at Churchill

McCraken has scared off all but five foes for the $100,000 Matt Winn Stakes (G3) for 3-year-olds at Churchill Downs June 17. Janis Whitham's homebred son of Ghostzapper will carry a high weight of 123 pounds in the 1 1/16-mile event, giving five pounds to each of his rivals.

McCraken Back to His Old Self in Matt Winn

Ian Wilkes hasn't lost faith.

He still believes that when the dust storm that is this year's 3-year-old male division clears, Janis Whitham's homebred McCraken will convince the masses of his talents.

Haskell Likely Next for McCraken

Having gotten his form back on track in his most recent start, getting over the top-level hump is next on the agenda for Janis Whitham's homebred McCraken.
