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.

ZIP’S LEGACY should prove hard to catch here
Digging deeper: This is one of those races where you single the 3 in the pick 3s or hit the all button. Pretty wide open. The 2 might be the better 1-2 key in exactas and tris.
OUR LIL SECRET will be a big price but could surprise
Digging deeper: The 1 will be a big price but switch back to Nolan is a positive and will be rolling late. Won’t play at under 6-1, but will play a weighted bet with more to show. (Double each play based on your bankroll. For instance, $2 to win, $4 to place, $8 to show…$10 to win, $20 to place $40 to show, etc.
GLITTER O’PRADO should handle this trip
Digging deeper: No real feel for this if it comes off the turf. Will likely pass.
MISTER GRASSHOPPER AND PREACHER TIME should battle again
Digging deeper: The 1-2 look like they will be battling again, but we will going deep in pick 3s and use the 3-5-7-9 as well.
POLKA JOE should be very tough here
Digging deeper: Off the turf we give the 5 no shot; move the 6 up as a play.
MY MASTER PLAN makes her third start off a layoff and should improve
Digging deeper: Last three don’t look great on paper but the 2 seems to be rounding into form and will play win/place at 3-1 or higher.
SINGLE CROSS has some decent works and could surprise
Digging deeper: None of the horses that have had actual races are very impressive, so we will take a shot with a first-time starter and bet the 3 across the board.
MAGNA BREEZE is incredibly sharp right now
Digging deeper: The 2 looks dangerous even off the turf. Move the 8 up as well.
CAP TRICK should thrive on this surface
Digging deeper: The 6 might be our favorite play of the night in the win/place pools.
JALMOLONGA should improve in second start
Digging deeper: The 8 is another we like solidly with win/place bets and should improve in start No. 2.
