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.
