I just realized I didn't enter a comment regarding McCraken. McCraken is my top choice to win the KD. I've been a fan of his for a while now. Prior to his last race, I went back and watch some of Ghostzapper's early races. I see a lot of similarities between father and son. As of today, McCraken and Mastery are my top two projection horses to win the KD. I'm looking forward to seeing his 3yo debut to see if he improves.
It's been a year sweetness since you died. Still miss you and I wonder what the 2016 season would have been like if you had have been here to race as a 5 year old. You will ALWAYS be my favourite horse bar none. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-N0Djz1yrec https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQI1sdvT9C0

  • pointgiven23 via Disqus · very easy breeze. glad to see him back · 1 day ago
  • By The Numbers via Disqus · He's such an interesting horse to watch because I can never tell how fast he's going. No matter if he's going :46 or :49, he has that long, relaxed, loping gallop · 7 hours ago
Didn't win by the best of margins, but still very promising.
He's back in training and if all goes well will get back on the Derby trail. Hopes to run in a prep in early february.
1999 Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Charismatic has arrived at Old Friends in Kentucky!! Looking good champ! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d849cf9681929f50b359ab99843865b44140d5dc6399f0ee1b09e2bb9c5ed8c7.jpg
Running Mate looks like a live longshot. I bet him to win at 55-1 in kdfw1 and boxed him with Classic Empire and the field. He looks to be targeting the Lecomte at the Fair Grounds in his first race for Derby points. Plenty of speed and stamina. His trainer Larry Jones trained Hard Spun who finished 2nd in the KY Derby.
That was too easy, lol
Nice win for her today. She looks to have improved as she's settled into racing in the USA. Could be one that improves further next year
This horse deserves more respect.
That looked catastrophic in the first at Del Mar :(
 
 
 

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.
