Sam Houston Race Park picks for Jan. 27 with bonus pick 4 play
Here are my selections for Sunday afternoon's racing festival. 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 will be at the track today so swing by and say hello and will be happy to discuss the races. (At the bottom you will find a play for the all stakes pick 4).
DAUNTLESS PRINCE struggled in last but prior efforts put him right there
BOTSWANA's debut on turf was solid and could easily win with a similar effort
ALL ABOUT VOODOO comes off a nice win in Okla. and this is a sensible spot
HIGH CLASS TASTE is in sharp form and should be in the mix
HIGHWAY SONG will be a nice price and could surprise
LATENT REVENGE should be on the early lead and will have to be caught
LEADEM IN KEN has been in the mix at tracks all over the country
BIGGER PICTURE has not won since taking this race last year but has been close vs. tougher
MIDNIGHT BISOU was one of the best 3YO fillies in the country last year and looks tough
SUSIE BEE has been close in recent starts and could break through
It is going to be hard to get rich of the late pick four, which starts in Race 7, because there are two heavy favorites in the sequence; Bigger Picture in the eighth and Midnight Bisou in the ninth. Hard to see many scenarios where Midnight Bisou loses, so we will try to pick up some prices elsewhere. In Race 7, we will use the 1-2-4-5-7. In Race 8, we will use Bigger Picture but take three shots at beating him. So the horses are 2-4-6-8. In the ninth we will single Midnight Bisou (7). If you want to take a shot at beating her, the 6 horse is the only one I can see pulling it off. In the last we will go five deep with the 3-4-8-9-10.
For .50, that will be a $50 ticket. If you want to narrow the price down just go 4-8 in the eight. That will cut the cost in half.
