PLAYING THE PONIES

Here are my selections for Wednesday. 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). I like the races on the second half of the card best of all, starting with race five.

FIRST
1-2-7-4
KITCHEN BOSS/JOYABLE
Entry looks double tough but might get a price behind them with the 2 horse


SECOND
7-6-4-3
GRACEFUL RULES should be tough in second start with new barn

THIRD
1-7-3-2
SNOOSE SASA wheels right back after chasing a horse in sharp form

FOURTH
1-5-9-10
SAMICEAN is always a threat on this turf course

FIFTH
5-10-3-2
XIROMA
Was a beaten favorite on a tough circuit in last and should be in the mix here

SIXTH
1-4-3-5
WILD WILL beat a tough crew at Oaklawn in last and could repeat

SEVENTH
9-5-2-1
IRREPLACEABLE did not show much in debut but bred to be very good

EIGHTH
2-5-4-1
EYE ON HARPER seems to be well spotted here and should be in the mix

NINTH
4-7-1-3
ARCH HALO is a first-time starter with OK works and good turf breeding
