PLAYING THE PONIES

Sam Houston Race Park selections for Friday, Jan. 31

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

4-2-7-1
SEATTLE SOUNDER is lightly raced and should improve


SECOND
3-1-5-7
ORATORY GLORY should be in a good spot to clear this condition


THIRD
10-6-1-12
MINE BOSS is lightly raced, last was not bad and he should improve


FOURTH
4-6-2-3
REACHREACHREACH drops in class and fits well in this spot


FIFTH
10-7-11-2
T.J.B. OORAH comes from a hot barn and is bred to love the grass

SIXTH
5-4-9-1
FRANKALEE FUN did the heavy lifting in last before getting passed by the favorite late


SEVENTH
5-8-2-3
TIZ PLUS was in over his head in the last two; much better spot here


EIGHTH
2-8-9-3
TRULY BLING has good connections; distance should be a perfect fit


NINTH
3-1-7-2
KARATE HOTTIE is another sharp Broberg claim who will be tough


TENTH
5-7-4-1

GATOR VINDICATION was a sharp second here in last and might go all the way

Would The Texans be able to build around Deshaun Watson once he signs a mega extension? Some sports personalities say yes, while others believe the Texans would struggle to be true contenders due to limited cap space. We've seen this before with one team in particular that plays in the NFC North.
