Last year we got the Belmont Super Screener for free. This year it's $37.00. How about some more free tips? I'm not tossing Freedom Child just yet. I also think Vyjack could be a superfecta bomber.

I won’t give away your toss like the other guy did in the Derby super screener comments, but I will dispute your facts a bit. The 2010 Dwyer was the de facto Peter Pan stakes (i.e. he local prep for the Belmont) and the Belmont winner came out of that race. Further, 4 of the last 6 Belmont winners didn’t compete in a prior triple crown race, and we were a head away last year from that being 5 out of 6. If you couple that with the fact that most Belmont winners were non-factors in the Derby, it makes that criteria seem less important.

About Me

Mike has been a passionate horseracing fan for over 30 years. He received his “handicapping education” through countless hours of deciphering the mystery that is embedded in every race. It was the tough beats at the window, however, that propelled him to never make the same mistake twice (well, maybe three times).

As Managing Partner of Horse Racing Nation, Mike serves as investor, business advisor, staff handicapper and developer of handicapping content.

Handicapping the Derby has always been one of Mike's favorite endeavors.  He spends weeks compiling notes, speed figures and analysis in preparation for the big race.  In 2010, his HRN pals pushed him into packaging his time-tested methods into what became the 2010 Kentucky Derby Super Screener, an e-book that became extremely popular with HRN readers and was downloaded over 3,000 times.   

In preparation for the 2011 Derby, Mike will be "Rating the Preps" each weekend on the Derby trail.  The goal will be to build a good picture for which prep races are most likely to produce the 2011 Kentucky Derby winner.
