In an ongoing poll that currently has almost 1400 votes asking do you think Arrogate will lose a race this year, almost 40% of votes say yes. I find that odd since he was 1-20 odds in the DWC so the only conclusion is that those saying yes are huge fans of another horse and do not wager.
STOP reporting REAMS of work out data and completely monopolizing the entire forum where logical and comparative points of view SHOULD reign, is negating this entire platform. This stuff is about as relevant as a bus schedule from the outskirts to down town Chicago. ENOUGH ALREADY!!

Nominated for the Tattersalls Gpld Cup
  • ILuvTurfRacing · O'Brien said she'll likely make her first start in either the Alleged Stakes or Mooresbridge Stakes, but that she'll be campaigned primarily at 10f for at least the first half of the flat season. So if she runs well in the Alleged and/or Mooresbridge, I would think the Tattersalls Gold Cup would be a logical target. · 32 minutes ago

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.
