Preakness Stakes Super Screener Now Available – Is There Another Rich Strike Waiting?

After a wild Derby where the 80-1 co-Top long Shot, Rich Strike, closed on the rail to shock the world, we turn our attention to the Preakness Stakes and the big question: can it happen again? Is there another Rich Strike waiting to take the stage (& blow up the tote board)?

The Preakness Stakes Super Screener is here to help answer that question, and you can get your copy now!

First, let’s look back at the Kentucky Derby, where Super Screener’s Mike Shutty was hoping for #21 Rich Strike to draw into the field. Thanks to Ethereal Road defecting, Rich Strike came in off the Also Eligible list just at the 9 AM deadline, and we were ecstatic with that development, knowing how much we liked this live long shot.

As Super Screener predicted in the weeks before the Derby, this would be the fastest pace in 10 years and that is exactly what happened with insanely fast fractions set by our projected pace leader, Summer Is Tomorrow. This sprinter cut sizzling fractions of :21 3/5 and :45 1/5 resulting in 4 deep closers dominating at the close of the race, including Rich Strike.

Out of the 11 long shots in the field, this is why Rich Strike was co-top choice with a Super Screener Top Long Shot score of 91%:

Note, that he met that crucial criterion of forward progression in his form cycle as shown by those increases in his Speed Rating figures. Next, he produced a huge 100+ Late Pace figure in his final race which is a key factor in nearly all of the Top Long Shots that we have picked that have hit the board. 

He also owned plenty of foundation having run 4 races since that 3-month layoff. Note that while he ran on the synthetic surface at Turfway Park in his last 4 races, he was proven on dirt having broken his maiden on the Churchill Downs surface. Here are some of the things we said about this horse in our horse analysis page:

And that is exactly how Sonny Leon rode him to win in the second-biggest upset in Derby history!
