Will probably have the same exact campaign as chrome last year. San Diego, Pacific Classic, Awsome Again, then Breeders Cup.
Is baffert make the jockey club gold cup the goal for him again this year?
Has been transferred to the barn of Todd Pletcher and will make her American debut on Saturday at Belmont Park.
I have been looking at Looking at Lee all year. Blood line, races etc. if not for a muddy track at Churchill would have been in my trifecta as a win. Belmont is his race. Very strong colt. Only question is his passion to win. Loves to run and runs hard to close but can he battle for the win. I bet he will.
Local horse Hotshot Anna wins the Northbound Pride Oaks and shipper Shadow Rock wins the Honor The Hero.
Could be one to watch. Two wins in a row. The last one was pretty strong.
Nicks, you say Kendrick is sorry?... lol
Retired due to a soft tissue injury sustained in the Lockinge. Stud plans will be announced at a later time.

If he runs one or two more bad races, they should retire him.
Souper Tapit won the Grade 3 Marine stakes 5/28/17 for his first graded stakes win.

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.
