Sam Houston Race Park selections for Monday, April 29

Hodges Photography

Here are my selections for Monday. 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). Rough start to the quarter horse meet but it will come around.

FIRST
3-4-7-6
RACEY BLAZE exits a tough heat and fits well here


SECOND
6-3-4-5
LA RAPID CHIRONOMY draws a favorable post and has been close a few times


THIRD

JESSCOMARUNNING should be in a good spot for win No. 3


FOURTH
3-7-4-5
RAYO TO THE TOP might finally be in the right spot for a win


FIFTH
8-1-3-6
RM DASHIN DEAL should improve with a start over the track


SIXTH

JESS ELEVEN OR SEVEN already has a win at this condition

What does Houston Texans QB Davis Mills need to do to prove that he is the Texans next franchise QB? If Mills is just okay this year and the Texans have a chance to draft a QB early, will Nick Caserio give the benefit of the doubt to Mills, or will the excitement of drafting a rookie win out?

ESPN Houston's Jake Asman, Cody Stoots, and Brad Kellner debate on The Wheelhouse.
