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).

1-6-9-8

Several media outlets are reporting that the Astros and Yuli Gurriel have agreed on an extension. MLB.com's Brian McTaggart says the deal is for $6.5 million in 2021 with a club option for 2022 for $8 million, according to a source with knowledge of the negotiation. Yahoo is reporting the numbers are slightly different.

Gurriel has struggled with the bat this season like many of his teammates. He hit .232 with 6 home runs and drove in 32 runs this year.
