Here are my selections for Friday. 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

8-9-1-4
EASTER MAN might be better at this distance and could pull off another mild upset


SECOND
1-7-8-10
UPTOWN SANDY GIRL has not lost against females since Nov. of 2017 (five straight)


THIRD
7-6-3-5
ASI FUE makes a second start off a layoff and should improve


FOURTH
3-8-1-5
SHANGHAID ROO has struggled recently but barn does little wrong here


FIFTH
6-9-8-1
MY FAIR MAID flashed speed in debut against a tough group


SIXTH
7-2-4-5
BWANA GO will be a short price but looks very strong in this spot


SEVENTH
5-6-1-2
CARA QUEEN has been close and this should be the night it gets done


EIGHTH
2-6-9-8
GOLD BUYER might want more distance but should be in the mix
