A Tip-Off

(THU) January 26th, 2023

7:48 p.m. Nothing yet to be done again since I had a meeting with a client besides other housework and replying messages that keep coming in from N-jima oyaji. Another busy day.

At first his message started with an information of a program run on Green Channel, to which I felt grateful since I'd have missed it if it weren't for his message. And then, he gave me a tip-off on Negishi Stakes saying that keying Lemon Pop seems okay, he'd fix the horse on the first place of trifectas. Though he didn't forget to say he'd won Nakayama Kinpai.

N-jima oyaji also mentioned he's fixing Win Marvel, Kir Lord and Namura Clair on the first place of trifectas for Silkroad Stakes, at least for now. Just for your information. Note that I won't be responsible for his words as there were a number of times I paid the price for believing his words blindly.
