PLAYING THE PONIES
Fred Faour's selections for Wednesday at Sam Houston Race Park
It's Day 3 of the Sam Houston Race Park thoroughbred meet with nine races this afternoon. Here are my selections for the 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).
There will be a lot of off-track money today, so we should get some decent prices on these picks. Good luck.
PERFECT CLASS was a beaten favorite in last and could bounce back
BATTLE ZONE ships in from New York and looks tough here
GIO POINT might fit well here in a wide open event
REAL PANIC was in deep in last and fits better in this spot
Slim edge for WOULDA COULDA DID but any of about six horses could win this
MY TOCCET will be a late factor and could pop at a price
BEST OF TES should be in the mix
PERFECT PARADE should bounce back and offers value in this spot
ESCAPIST has faced tough customers and should do well here
