PLAYING THE PONIES

Sam Houston Race Park selections for Saturday, Feb. 9

Kentuckyderby.com.

Here are my selections for Saturday. 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. If the races come off the turf due to rain, check out Twitter and I will update the picks. (These are the picks and format that are available on the free tip sheet at SHRP). I like the second, third, fifth, eighth and ninth races the best).

FIRST

7-2-5-4

RB BLASTFROMTHEPAST might have found the right spot here

SECOND

2-4-3-5

SPECIAL PRAISE could pull off a mild upset here

THIRD

2-5-6-1

GOLD BUYER is another Calhoun/Parker runner and should be tough

FOURTH

5-4-1-3

RARE POPPY was a beaten favorite in last but should bounce back

FIFTH

2-4-3-6

VOLLEY MOLLEY stretches back out and could take this at a nice price

SIXTH

6-4-1-2

SHES A TEXAN needed last and should fare better in this spot

SEVENTH

1-3-6-4

KITCHEN BOSS could turn the tables in this spot

EIGHTH

5-6-1-4

MARIA CHUCHENA was right there with solid fields in Oklahoma

NINTH

A PLACE REMEMBERED rates a slim edge in a competitive group

Bookie Busters: Midweek madness

The wait for football season is over, well almost. We made it through the entire summer with our bankroll steadly increasing, pat yourself on the back! But, not too hard because it's gambling, and right when you start to feel yourself, you get brought back down to earth. Make sure you can take the swings of winning and losing, both require you to stay disciplined. It's easy to get off track with a bigger bankroll, on the other hand, when your roll is low, the word chase comes into play.

Know how to play both sides of the spectrum and as always, good luck!!
