Coady photography

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).

Wednesday on First Take, Stephen A. Smith makes his case for conjugal visits in the bubble because players are lonely and need some human interaction. Smith believes that there should be a window before the playoffs start when players should be allowed to have one visitor to join them to help ease loneliness among other things. Check out the video to hear his full hilarious argument.
