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).

FIRST
2-1-3-4
JESS FIRE N ICE might have found the right spot for a breakthrough


SECOND
5-6-3-1
EYESA SHOOFLY DANDY has some nice wins in the past and could flash back

THIRD
2-5-7-6
SILK N SEIS has just missed in last two and best effort might get it done

FOURTH
2-1-6-5
DYNO MAN should improve with a cleaner trip

FIFTH
1-6-5-8
FLYING TOOLE needed last and should improve in this spot

SIXTH
8-5-2-1
RJS CORONA has been close a few times and should be in the mix

SEVENTH
7-4-2-1
VODKA BLACK DUCK might surprise at a big price here

EIGHTH
1-8-7-3
ONEFAMOUSSTREAKINDASH ran a big one in last and fits well here

Watt is heading to Arizona. Composite photo by Brandon Strange

JJ Watt has made his decision and will be joining the Arizona Cardinals. Watt is signing a 2-year deal for $31 million with $23 million guaranteed, according to Ian Rapoport. Apparently, former Texans teammate DeAndre Hopkins did a good job of recruiting JJ to Arizona. We knew QB would be an important factor in Watt's decision, and Kyler Murray certainly looks like one of the best up-and-coming QBs in the league. The Cardinals went 8-8 last season.
