Distance suits Skim the Till


Skim the Till has never been beaten at 7 1/2 furlongs on turf, and he will seek to keep that record intact Friday night in the featured eighth race at Lone Star Park. Skim the Till is one of the top contenders in the $45,000 optional claimer that also drew stakes performers Okie Time, Wait in Line, and Flamefinder.

Skim the Till is 3 for 5 on turf, with two of those wins having come at 7 1/2 furlongs. In his most recent out, he won a one-mile turf allowance wire to wire. Richard Eramia has the mount for trainer Bruce Jackson.
