Coady photography

Here are my selections for Friday night. These are not meant to be in exact order, but merely the four horses I think have the best chance to win. For beginners, I suggest exacta boxes with three horses, using two of mine and one of your own. And you can always pick up a copy of Acing Racing 2016 to learn everything you need to know. (These are the picks and format that are available on the free tip sheet at SHRP).

FIRST
1-10-4-2
WAR HORSE
Has been close on a few occasions and should be in the mix


SECOND
6-4-8-3
SANTANDER
Last was a disaster but prior efforts would put him in the mix

THIRD
4-8-6-5
MULLINER
Has been close on several occasions and maybe tonight is the night

FOURTH
4-7-8-3
EVERYTHING IVORY
Been in some tough heats and could surprise at a price

First time starter had a nice work at Delta and could surprise

SIXTH
2-6-8-1
A FIREY MAMA
Has been decent at times and could win at a solid price

SEVENTH
3-6-8-1
CAPITAN DE LA PLAYA
Inconsistent but best effort puts this one squarely in the mix

EIGHTH
6-4-3-7
HOT BEER
