Crackerjack King

Trained by Marc Botti, bred in Irleand, a champ in Italy, Crackerjack King tries to improve upon his prizes in Chicago. His last effort in the Coral Eclipse at Sandown was probably compromised by the soft going, which shouldn't be a problem in our scorched middle west. He was bested there by another Godsen runner (Nathaniel). Godsen will saddle two in the Million: Questioning and Colombia.  His winning runs usually come from midpack. In his losing run he seemed to have no kick at the end. I'd like it more if he were a front runner. This summer the turf races have been won on the front end. Rahystrada who won the prep for this race wired the field, something he'd never done before in a long career.
