Skippylongstocking

The graded-stakes placed Skippylongstocking is by the stamina-influencing sire Exaggerator, who finished second in the 2016 Kentucky Derby ahead of a win in that year’s Preakness Stakes.

The talented bay has appreciated added ground with his Beyer Speed Figures increasing in each of his last three starts, including an 88 for a nine-furlong optional-claiming win at Gulfstream, a 91 for a third-place finish in the nine-furlong Grade 2 Wood Memorial presented by Resorts World Casino and a 94 last out for a fifth-place finish from the outermost post 9 in the 1 3/16-mile Grade 1 Preakness.

Skippylongstocking, a $37,000 purchase at the OBS Spring Sale of 2-Year-Olds in Training, will look to provide trainer Saffie Joseph, Jr. his first win in a Triple Crown race. Jockey Manny Franco guided New York-bred Tiz the Law to victory in the 2020 Belmont Stakes.
