Sam Houston Race Park selections for Friday, March 15

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
6-1-3-2
BIG BEN AA will be a short price but this is his softest spot in a while


SECOND
4-2-5-1
JAY ISKEY offers nice value on the stretch out and picks up Parker


THIRD
5-3-4-8
ZABETTE will be a short price but looks very solid in this spot


FOURTH
1-4-2-7
GET THE BLING might not have liked the off track in last; deserves another shot


FIFTH
7-5-6-2
CLEAR AS DAY had a decent effort in last against some tough runners


SIXTH
8-1-3-2
TOO TALL TONY stretches out off a pair of sharp efforts and might surprise


SEVENTH

NOBLE LOVE shortens up off some solid efforts in New Orleans; top four look tough here


EIGHTH
2-3-5-6
LUCKY LIGHTENING would not need to improve much to take this down


NINTH
7-2-1-4
IMALLABOUTIT is well bred for the grass and might pop at a price
