Sam Houston Race Park selections for Friday, Feb. 22

Sam Houston Race Park

Here are my selections for Friday. 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
1-2-9-7
SLUFFYS GIZMO heads an intriguing entry


SECOND
3-7-5-2
TRUE WISDOM flashed speed going longer for strong connections

THIRD
2-8-5-4
CHASE FOR THE GOLD ripped off a nice maiden win in last and could repeat

FOURTH
7-1-3-4
RARE POPPY has been a money burner of late but is in a good spot

FIFTH
2-6-7-1
LITTLE SNIP has been facing tough customers and fits well here

SIXTH
8-1-6-4
ARCH VALUE freaked in last; similar effort probably takes this

SEVENTH
6-4-5-2
SARGE'S DAUGHTER caught a tough group in last and should be prominent early

EIGHTH
8-3-5-9
PURELY BOY likely needed last and could pop at a price

Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Rockets traded a 2nd round pick to the Cavaliers for Kevin Porter Jr. on Thursday night. Hopefully, his difficulties off the court can be solved and it works out for the Rockets.
