Sam Houston Race Park selections for Saturday, April 20

Coady Photography

Here are my selections for Saturday 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

2-1-4-5

Stretches out and might pull off a mild surprise

SECOND
4-6-2-1

Has been consistently close and this might be the night

THIRD
1-5-6-7
BORGER BOY
Heads a tough entry and either horse could take this one

FOURTH

Can easily be in the mix with a clean start

FIFTH
8-4-6-1

Has been close before and this looks like a good spot

This week, ESPN released their post-NFL Draft power rankings and lo and behold, the Texans are out of the basement, ranked No. 28. Which is up from No. 32, when the first rankings came out post-free agency.

Another interesting note about the power rankings, the Jets are now behind the Texans after having what was considered to be an all-time great draft haul. Be sure to check out the video as we make sense of these updated rankings, and debate Texans vs Jags, Davis Mills vs. Zach Wilson, and much more!
