Here are my selections for Saturday night at Sam Houston Race Park. 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

7-1-4-6
LAZER HESS needed last; could bounce back in a big way

SECOND

The soap opera that has been the Texans 2020 season took another twist on Thanksgiving when Houston won its 2nd consecutive game of the season with a blowout win over the Detroit Lions. The Texans have less than a puncher's chance at sneaking into the playoffs, but, as Charlie Pallilo explores in the above video, there would seem to be a lot more on the line than just the playoffs.

Editors note: This video was recorded prior to the Will Fuller suspension news.
