Skippy’s Weekend Hot Tip Sheet
Disclaimer: The Skippy’s Weekend Tip Sheet is a just a quick look of horses running in the “Upcoming Big Races” for the weekend as listed on the front page of the sim, Derbyville/Derbyfever. This is a watch list tip sheet of horses that deserve a good look in each race. I will include at least one Long Shot for each race that may deserve a look and that maybe a horse to consider in the Tip A Horse contest in the Forums. The Skippy’s Weekend Hot Tip Sheet is independent of any races that my BTB colleagues may have previewed and of which they most likely did a lot more research in their articles than I have taken time to do. I hope you enjoy this format and enjoy the comments made on my selections.

Middle Jewel Stakes (9,7,8,1)
9-General Crook: Winner of the Bluegrass Derby and has never missed the boards in eight starts.
7-Personable: Ran fourth in the Bluegrass. If he is ready he may roll across the wire.
8-Ready For A Strike: Looks rested and ready to compete if he can handle the distance.
1-Oldmoon’s Mine: Comes in well rested and was second in the Arkansas Juvenile. Going off at a good price at 14/1 in the morning line and gets a good gate draw.
Japan Oaks (2,9,4,11)
2-White Gold Tower: Can go the distance and could be gold in this race.
9-Jade Free: Was third in the Sydney Oaks and is looking for her first Graded win.
4-Moon Jumper: Can she go the distance? Let’s see what she can do.
11-Calculated Payment: She continues to improve. At 18/1 let’s see how much.
Ugly Breeders Bowl Distaff (13,12,5,11)
13-The Passageway: She is looking hungry for a G1 win. Can she get there first?
12-Almighty Forensics: Has not been off the boards since June 2019. Will she pick up her first G1 win?
5-Earth Is Flat: Can put up some good speeds when she wants to. Will she want to today?
11-Mangled: Has been improving and is going off at 13/1. I will put this one on some exotic tickets.
The Irish 2000 Guineas (10,14,6,8)
10-Ghostzooper: Has won three in a row. Can he make it four?
14-Sakura Bath LV: Looks to get back on track as he steps up in Class. This gate should not hurt him.
6-Kodiac Bear: Three in a row and he likes hitting the boards first. Can he do it again?
8-Rush To The Start: Has been running well at the distance and could be a surprise in this field. At 11/1 he deserves to be on some of my tickets.
Weedy Establishment Stakes (10,14,1,6)
10-Debunked TB: Has proven he can run in various track conditions. Has four wins in a row and has her eye on making it five.
14-Terriofic Swan: I wish she had a better gate draw. She may show up to fight this one out.
1-Midnite Guard: Looks ready for a Graded run, but is the jump in Class a little much?
6-Classical Fiction: Four trips to the winners circle in last four outings. Takes a big jump in Class for this race, is she ready? At 15/1 I am going to put her on a couple of tickets at the window.
Golden Goose Sprint (6,5,1,7)
6-Arnold Palmer: Won the Sydney Sprint last out and is seeking his fifth win in a row.
5-Town Of Montes: Won the Sand Castle Turf Sprint his last trip out. Is looking to make four in a row.
1-Chester Lampwick: I see no kinks in his armor and he is quickly climbing the ladder of success.
7-Forli’s Act: Was the front runner in the Sydney Sprint and was caught in the stretch for home. At 10/1 I will place him on a ticket or two.
