Thoroughbred racing returns

Sam Houston Race Park picks for opening night

Live racing has returned to Sam Houston Race Park and it is opening night of the thoroughbred meet. The Blitz will be broadcasting live on Friday and I will also be making an appearance at the track Sunday afternoon.

Here are my selections for Friday night. 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).

FIRST

4-3-1-2

BITTY BRIT will need to run back to her Oct. 9 race but if she does she looks tough

SECOND

4-3-5-6

LONS OXBOW comes off a sharp effort and barn will win a lot of races here

THIRD

7-1-2-6

AURORA LANE comes off two nice efforts at Remington and Okie runners fare well here

FOURTH

3-6-7-4

Will take a shot with first GLORIOSA; barn usually has them ready

FIFTH

7-11-10-5

GHURAIR always seems to be right there on the turf and looks solid here

SIXTH

8-4-3-2

LINUS has yet to show much but has been facing solid runners

SEVENTH

7-1-9-5

YEOWZER returns to the grass where he dominated in August

EIGHTH

5-6-11-9

BALLROOM KITTEN should be rolling in the late stages

The wait is over, and the "Game of the century" is upon us. Now remember, with games of this magnitude, numbers will be sharp. But if you must, I'll have some bets for the big game. Focus on spots where the books don't, that's the key to this.

Big weekend all around with all types of hoops and football. Like always, play smart and stick to the script.

Good luck!
