Super Screener's Top 6 Produce Top 4 Preakness Finishers

The Preakness Super Screener produced big again having isolated the top four Preakness finishers among the top six ranked horses.  This was just one of several key performance goals met by the Super Screener.  Check out how we did against the rest of our goals...


1. Consistently separate horses that will finish in the top half of the field versus those that will finish in the bottom half of the field.


  • Put a big check mark next to this one.  Remarkably, the Preakness Super Screener perfectly separated the top half of the field from the bottom half of the field (see chart below)
  • The top 6 finishers in the Preakness were the same horses the Super Screener ranked as the top 6.


2. Tosses vulnerable, low-priced horses or ranks them in the bottom half of the field.


  • The Super Screener took a big stand against a top choice by many handicappers… Sway Away…The result?  Sway Away was nowhere to be found finishing a disappointing, but not unexpected, 12th place.



3. Isolates bombers with the best chance to hit the board.


  • Astrology hit the board (3rd place) at 15-1.  He was ranked fifth by the Super Screener



4. Identify the three horses to hit the trifecta within the top seven horses as ranked by the Preakness Super Screener.


  • The Preakness Super Screener didn't just meet, but exceeded this goal by identifying the Trifecta finishers and Superfecta finishers with the top SIX horses as ranked by the Preakness Super Screener

Hey Mike,

This is Denny in central Florida. After our big superfecta score in the Derby, our team (plus one more) invested 200 bucks each to play the Preakness for a total of 1200.00 dollars. With the Preakness Screener's help, we decided on a varitey of 1.00 tri bets and .10 superfecta bets, which we parlayed into winning a 1.00 tri for 700.00 and 6 .10 superfectas for 1860.00 which resulted in a grand total of 2500.00!!!!

Also, one of the team members (Hoyt) played 500 dollars of individual tickets (with advice from the Screener) and he hit the 2.00 tri for 1400.00.

Much thanks to the Screener!!

Take care,

Caught the Trifecta twice just boxing your top 6 choices! That's two scores in a row! Let's make it three in the Belmont!

It's on to the Belmont Stakes and the Super Screener will be there to help you separate the TRUE contenders from the hopeless pretenders.  Each Belmont starter will be put through time-tested, highly predictive performance criteria established through a comprehensive study of past winners (and losers).  The result will be a complete analysis of the Belmont field isolating horses with the best chance to win; bombers with the best shot to hit the board and vulerable short-priced horses to toss.

Check back with Horse Racing Nation on how you can Super Screen your way to Belmont Stakes victory!

Can we see the belmont supersreener suggested plays? I always enjoy comparing your suggestions to my actual bets after the race has been decided. I did have 10 to win on RoI. It is always interesting to crunch the numbers..
Thanks for the great emails! Glad to hear the Super Screener produced again for you. Many people are asking if there will be a Belmont Super Screener. Indeed, there will be unless the number of probable starters dwindles to a handful. Right now though it looks like a pretty decent field is expected so stay tuned!
I am thoroughly impressed with the Super Screener results this spring ... great work, Mike!

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.
