Derby Handicapper Michael Dempsey
When it comes to handicapping the big races, veteran handicapper Michael Dempsey produces the goods. Check out his Derby picks now.
Mike has nailed the winner of the Kentucky Derby with his TOP PICK in four of the last six Run for the Roses, including last year’s stunner Animal Kingdom, who returned $43.80.
Mike’s other top picks were the 2010 winner Super Saver ($18.00), Street Sense ($11.80) in 2007, and the late great Barbaro was Mike’s top pick in 2006, returning $14.20.
Many handicappers take full credit for picking a horse with their third or fourth choice. Mike is not one of them.
Is there any other public handicapper that can attest to nailing the Kentucky Derby winner in four of the last six years?
How about just the past two years with $2 windfalls of $18.00 and $43.80?
Mike is known as the hardest working handicapper in the business, covering Saratoga, Aqueduct, Belmont Park, Churchill Downs, and Keeneland, and handicapping all of the big stakes races including the Triple Crown and Breeders’ Cup.
Mike gives a detailed analysis of each race he handicaps, including information on breeding, track bias, pace analysis, trainer and jockey angles, key races as well as a fair odds line and wagering recommendations for each race.
As a former horse owner that campaigned horses on the east coast, Mike knows the racetrack from the backstretch to the finish line, and everywhere in between.
A professional handicapper and horseplayer with over three decades of experience, Mike learned his trade while roaming the tracks at Laurel Park, Pimlico, Delaware Park, Charles Town.
Mike created and was host and producer of the TurfnSport Radio Network. It was one of horse racing's first Internet web casts dedicated to the sport. During its four-year run, Michael interviewed hundreds of guests in the industry including Hall of Famers Gary Stevens, Mike Smith, Julie Krone, Bill Shoemaker and "Bud" Delp.
However, when it comes to analyzing the races and selecting winners, Mike does not look to inside information or whispers from the barn.
Mike uses his thirty plus years of experience and hard work to consistently select winners and give his readers concise analysis of the day’s races to maximize profits when betting the ponies.
