Unbeaten McCracken came from off the pace and bested his rivals by 1 1/2 lengths in the Grade 3 Sam F. Davis Stakes at Tampa Bay Downs.
The favorite stayed off the pace as State of Honor went to the front. Jockey Brian Hernandez Jr. bided his time, patiently waiting for his move, which finally came around the far turn. As they entered the homestretch, McCracken still had some ground to make up but easily passed all comers en route to the victory.
Tapwrit closed quickly to take second place, and State of Honor held on for third place.
