Michael Antoniades is our resident handicapper, a long time racing analyst based in Chicago.
A Windy City native, Michael grew up watching both harness and thoroughbred racing, marveling at the beauty and power of these graceful athletes of both sports.
As a teenager, he would visit Sportsman's Park during the summer nights, seeing greats such as Albatross, Nevele Pride and Mr.Delrae.
Eventually, Michael began handicapping the races and decided he had found his niche in life that meshed with his passion for horses and horse racing.
Michael is currently working on the Fox Sports Show, Horsin' Around TV, seen every Saturday morning at 5:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.
