So Conflated will scratch from the Risen Star and instead head to the Gotham.
Doug O Neill announces that California Derby winner So Conflated, who drew post 14 in the Risen Star Stakes, will scratch and point instead for the Gotham Stakes.
If only.......Charismatic! We will miss you.
BREAKING NEWS: It is absolutely devastating to a report and confirm that 1999 Kentucky Derby winner Charismatic died unexpectedly this morning. He was 21 years old.
Easy gallop this morning. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C5DQBscVMAQyPqu.jpg
Only reason Tiznow won that race against GC was because GC drifted out
Another MOUNT down at almost the SAME SPOT in race 2...what is up with this?
Giant's Causeway lead a number excellent TURF horses that BOMBED in North America. This list is both long and unpredictable who will adjust to dirt in their face.
Down in a heap near the 1/16th pole in today's opening after being nearly beat to death by Gonzales...HOPE he got up.
That is one fast Time!!
Tiznow was a great racehorse, to win back to back BC Classic's, and beating SUPERSTARS like "Giant's Causeway" and "Sakhee". When "Sakhee" kicked for home and went a length or so clear, surely there was NO WAY he could be beaten, but "Tiznow" got him, that was an incredible achievement!!! You can see why he's so popular, he showed loads of guts and heart in his races!!! :-)

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.
