The 2008 Triple Crown campaign begins in earnest this weekend for the leading three-year-old racehorses in the USA, and horse racing handicappers will try to find that elusive winner of the Kentucky Derby, the one horse that will have a chance to capture the Triple Crown. An international horse racing news and information website, should make that search a lot easier thanks to their innovative 'Triple Crown Power Rankings', a weekly list of the Top 10 rated three-year-old horses in America.

The Triple Crown Power Rankings for 2008 are based on a horse racing handicapping algorithm developed by the editorial staff at that assigns a value to each of the prep runs that traditionally point towards the horses with the best odds of winning the Kentucky Derby.

"We're excited about the initial list of horses chosen as the Top 10 contenders," said Marc Weinberg, the senior editor of the horse racing portal. "War Pass leads the pack at this early juncture, and remains the one they all have to beat despite the fact that he is yet to run this season. Since Street Sense laid the Breeders' Cup Juvenile jinx to rest last year, War Pass is getting a lot more respect in the Kentucky Derby betting Ante-post, and that seems accurate to us."

Other horses that are currently ranked as leading Triple Crown contenders include Pyro, Georgie Boy, and Court Vision.

"The Fountain Of Youth Stakes at Gulfstream Park will separate the true contenders and the mere pretenders," Weinberg went on to remark, "and we would not be surprised to see Court Vision's rating move up appreciably higher, provided he runs to form this weekend."

Power Rankings are an invaluable handicapping tool for many sports bettors, and are widely used and respected in the NFL, NBA, and MLB. Horse racing gamblers should find this type of information equally useful as they attempt to identify the best Triple Crown horses for 2008.
