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.
