PLAYING THE PONIES

Sam Houston Race Park selections for Friday, May 10

Hodges Photography

Here are my selections for Friday night. 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).

JESS FIRE N ICE might have found the right spot for a breakthrough
