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 and throw in a few potential plays.

ONLY A PACEMAKER might have found the right spot for that elusive second win
Digging deeper: This is a struggling group, but there should be value to be found, since the 7 will get overbet as a terrible favorite. Will play the 3 across the board.
TEXAS FIRE looks very tough in this spot
Digging deeper: The 1A looks tough here, but if he scratches and the 1 runs eject. If he does scratch, might move the 5 up here and wheel him in exotics.
BETSY BOOTS drops in for a tag off a strong effort
Digging deeper: Really like the 5 here as a decent win/place play.
CANELA CALIENTE might be OK with the surface switch
Digging deeper: Another race with a favorite we don’t like. Will look for value win bets on the 3 and 4.
Will take a flyer on long shot EASY MONEY MAN in a wide open group
Digging deeper: The 7 has been close in last two and could surprise here at a solid price. Will play to win and place and wheel up and down in the exactas.
KAT’S INFATUATION should be very tough here
Digging deeper: No getting around the 4 here, who chased a monster home last out. Will hit the 4-2 and 4-5 exactas hard.
GRANTS COMMANDER drops in for a tag and might surprise here
Digging deeper: The 8 will be scratched because he already won a race. The 10 figures to take all the money, but the race he is coming out of was ridiculously slow. The 1 has made one start against tougher and did not show much, but should improve, offers a juicy price and is worth an across the board play here.
We will take a shot at beating the heavy favorite with TEXAS BELLE
Digging deeper: The 5 horse beat the 8 on the square last out, but picks up weight and the last time she carried this much she was beaten badly as a favorite. At 3-5, we will pass and take a shot with the horse she beat last time, who gets a five pound break from the favorite and could easily make up a length at a nice price. Win bet on the 8, exactas 8 over 1-5-6.
WITTS HENNY PENNY might break through here
Digging deeper: Another wide open affair. Might just play 2/all all/2 exactas and hope for a price.
SEVEN SQUARED should improve with the stretchout and switch to grass
Digging deeper: The 3 could improve dramatically in start No. 2 and is bred to handle the grass. And we get a great price. Will wheel him up and down in the exactas and play across the board.
