> 2013 Arkansas Derby
Sire: Scat Daddy
Dam: Skipper's Mate
Damsire: Skip Away
Trainer: Ken McPeek
Jockey: Victor Lebron
Owner: Magic City Thoroughbred Partners
Notable Races: 2nd, G1-Arkansas Derby; 7th, G1-Florida Derby; 6th, G3-Holy Bull; 2nd, G2-Kentucky Jockey Club
Positives: He's raced twice at Churchill Downs in his career with a win and a second place finish to his name. He broke his maiden at Churchill in early November and followed that race up by finishing second to Uncaptured in the G2-Kentucky Jockey Club. So, if you're looking for reasons to bet Frac Daddy, his prior success over the track is probably near the top of your list.
Another good sign for Frac Daddy was his second place finish to Overanalyze in the Arkansas Derby. After his struggles in Florida he needed a race where he achieved some level of success. On the other hand...
Negatives: He probably didn't get a whole lot out of those two races in Florida, even though he had excuses for both of those efforts. It remains to be seen whether his race at Oaklawn in the Arkansas Derby was enough to fully prepare him for a race as grueling as the Kentucky Derby.
