How to read our Picks

For those who are new to Horse Racing handicapping, what you'll find for each race is a line of four numbers informing you which number of horses for that race we have Picked to come first, i.e. if Race 1 said 3-6-8-2 then we are saying Horse 3 will win with our next choices for the win being horses 6 then 8 then 2 in that order.
