Sam Houston Race Park selections for Friday, March 20

Coady Photography

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.

FIRST
1-5-6-7
UPTOWN SANDY GIRL is on a good run and will be in the mix again


SECOND
5-3-1-2
SARABI gets back on the main track and should fare better


THIRD

1-6-2-3
RAISON KARTER should improve in second start vs. winners


FOURTH
9-5-4-12
RIGHT LANE MARKUSZ should thrive with return to turf


FIFTH
4-7-10-3
MR MIDTOWN takes a drop off a pair of decent efforts

SIXTH
8-12-11-7
HONUS should bounce back off a dull effort in last


SEVENTH
5-4-6-8
DE CORDOVA improved in last and could take another step


EIGHTH
5-9-3-2
CURLINS JOURNEY was close in last; could get it done

Mark Berman is reporting that Michael Brantley and the Astros have agreed on a 2-year contract worth $32 million. Several reports indicated that Brantley would be signing with the Blue Jays, but apparently the deal wasn't final. Berman's report appears to be legit. Check out the tweets below from Brian McTaggart and Carlos Correa.
