How to use the picks: These are the same picks you can get on the free tip sheet available at shrp.com and on track. They are not meant to necessarily be in exact order, but more an opinion on likely winners. I am assuming you have some knowledge or have listened to Acing Racing 2016. We give a little more detail here than what you get on the tip sheet.
I was not crazy about last night’s card and murdered it. Tonight I like the card, so that probably means these picks are no good.
U TIZNOW INFORMED has been improving and might get it done
Digging deeper: Do not know if the 4 can win this, but a safe across the board bet. The 5 was solid in last but that was a very weak group. The 7 is an Asmussen runner but will play against.
PUMPVILLE could get an easy lead and prove tough to catch
Digging deeper: Not crazy about this race but the 6 looks like the speed of the speed and no one in here really wants to finish. No play for me but maybe an across the board bet on the 6.
THE LAST SCOUT has been knocking heads with monsters
Digging deeper: Like this 3 horse quite a bit. He should wire this group. Looking like a pick 3/4 single.
SUITE GOSSIP should be rolling late in this one
Digging deeper: The 3 is an interesting horse. He is either off the board or runs a big one. He is set up to run well tonight. Will key him on top in the tris with the 1-2-4-6 with all.
MR N should benefit from an early pace duel
Digging deeper: If he runs like he did last time, Mr N should be rolling in the lane. Probably passing on this race.
Either half of the entry should be in the mix here
Digging deeper: One of the entry horses will likely be scratched. Both have excellent speed and whichever goes should be tough to beat. Single in pick 3s and 4s.
LAUDY likes this track and should be a factor
Digging deeper: This is a solid play for me. Love Laudy coming back from the Fair Grounds. Another single in pick 3s and 4s and will bet him across the board.
CAN’T BE WRONG needed last and gets back to a preferred surface
Digging deeper: The 9 ran pretty well even though the horse is much better on the grass. The tightener should help. Will be betting win and place.
ISHAQ is unbeaten in three starts and could be any kind
Digging deeper: The 1 horse will take the money, and he is a serious runner. But the 7 is unbeaten in three starts and could be any kind. I will be playing the 7 to win, and will box the 1-7-10 exacta several times. The 10 LOVES SHRP and could sneak in at a monster price.
CABERNEIGH disappointed in last but should be in the mix
Digging deeper: My favorite play of the night. Trifecta wheel 7 with 4-5-8 with all, 4-5-8 with 7 with all.
