It's Day 2 of the Sam Houston Race Park thoroughbred meet with nine races tonight. Here are my selections for thres card. 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).

Friday night was a mixed bag. Not a lot of top picks winning but some decent long shots in our top four. Overall a C type of night. Like the card tonight so hopefully we will do better. Good luck.
