Sam Houston Race Park selections for Friday, Feb. 8

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. If the races come off the turf due to rain, check out Twitter and I will update the picks. (These are the picks and format that are available on the free tip sheet at SHRP). I like the second, fourth, seventh and eighth races the best.

FIRST
2-4-5-1
Not much value here but Awesome Wild Girl looks tough


SECOND
2-8-7-4
Calhoun/Parker combo has been on fire and EMERALD LADY should be in the mix

THIRD
1-5-2-7
SHE'S OLD FASHION has not shown much but takes a class plunge

FOURTH
6-8-1-4
Turnback and class drop might help ANTAGONIST get it done

FIFTH
9-10-5-6
PATERNAL PRIDE comes off a nice win at Remington and should be in the mix

SIXTH
3-5-6-4
STAR IN CHARGE seems to have figured things out

SEVENTH
4-8-2-3
FINAL EXAM has some decent works for his debut in a wide open affair

EIGHTH
8-3-2-1
STYLIN AT MIDNIGHT catches a struggling group and might be ready in debut

With the Houston Texans sitting at 1-5 and the Packers coming to town, this seems like the perfect time to consider trading some players and focus on the future of the organization. Make sure to watch the video to find out which 4 players the Texans should consider trading, and why one of these players would shock the fanbase if he's moved. And no, it's not JJ Watt.
