Published:Friday | May 8, 2015 | 5:00 AM

Veteran tipster Francisco 'Linky' Mills of Cable News and Sport Network has won the second bi-monthly prize in the CTL tipsters' competition with 38 wins.

Mills held off Jimmie of the STAR by one winner to capture the $20,000 prize donated by CTL in a field of 14 media tipsters. Finishing close up in third was Collin 'Pebbles' Blair (Sport Globe) with 36 wins, followed by Kirk Kong of Track & Pools with 34.

There was no winner in the wagering category and the unclaimed $20,000 has been carried over to the May/June period for which the winner will receive $40,000. Mills finished that category with minus $650.20, the best loser.

At the end of April, it was close going in the overall category (most wins) with three tipsters locked in the lead with 84 each. They are Jimmie, Kong and Tony Chadman, who represents News Talk 93.
