PLAYING THE PONIES

Sam Houston Race Park selections for Friday, Feb. 7

Here are my selections for Friday night at Sam Houston Race Park. 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
1-6-9-8
ADDED ATTRACTION will be very tough in here if he goes


SECOND
11-5-1-8
SKY PULPIT showed nothing in debut but should improve in second start

FOURTH

SIXTH

SEVENTH
2-6-7-10

NINTH
11-5-1-2
CATCH THE DEVIL has taken a lot of action in two starts; tonight might be the night
