PLAYING THE PONIES

Sam Houston Race Park selections for Friday, May 17

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). We will be doing The Blitz from 4-7 at the track so please drop by.

FIRST
3-5-6-1
NO HABITS HERE could surprise if able to get an early lead

SECOND
7-2-3-6
LA RAPID CHIRONOMY just missed as a favorite last out and fits well here

THIRD
8-9-3-4
MAMA SAID FIRST was close in SHRP debut and similar effort wins here

FOURTH
3-10-8-4
JESSE PEGASO was close in a tough heat last out and should improve

FIFTH
6-9-8-2
ALINAS WAR PRINCESS just missed against a solid group in last

SIXTH
3-6-9-4
SEND CANDY AND POP is quick out of the gate, a must at this distance

SEVENTH

SHAKE EM ROCKS could pull off a mild surprise here
