The Word On Skippylongstocking
On Saturday, Skippylongstocking breezed five furlongs in 1:02.4 in his final workout for the Belmont Stakes.
From TheLines’ Stephen Andress: Proved to be a cut below the best in the Preakness field, despite another slight improvement, but still not near the triple-digit Beyer Speed Figures required at this stage in the schedule. Had a rest advantage over post-time favorite Epicenter, and it didn’t matter, also losing soundly to Preakness winner Early Voting for a second time. Now on the wrong side of a rest advantage in the Belmont, it’s likely a toss for me.
