Earnings: $686,000*
Next Race: Kentucky Derby*
* Current as of April 1, 2012

Creative Cause is a Giant's Causeway and Dream Of Summer colt. CC has finished in the money in all of his starts with a record of 4-2-2. He's also raced against some of the best three year olds in the country, many of whom will be his competition on May 5th in the Kentucky Derby. He's also got a great jockey in Joel Rosario.

However, he's another horse who has raced almost solely on the west coast. His only trip east was for the Breeders' Cup Juvenile in which he placed third behind Hansen and Union Rags. There's no doubt he's got a track record to be proud of but some horses don't run as well when they head east. My guess is he'll be overvalued in the Derby. I may find room for him in a Superfecta or Trifecta, but he won't be my top bet.
