PLAYING THE PONIES

Sam Houston Race Park selections for Saturday, March 7

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).

FIRST
7-2-4-5
HIGH SPIRITS is in sharp form and could take this


SECOND
