Sam Houston Race Park selections for Saturday, March 9

Coady photography.

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. (These are the picks and format that are available on the free tip sheet at SHRP). I will be in the ESPN section on the second floor from 7-9 p.m. so please drop by and say hello.

FIRST
9-4-2-5
DANCE WITH ME BW freaked against better in last and should be tough here


SECOND
3-2-7-6
QUICK SAND AA did not lose a race in 2018 and should be ready for another big effort

THIRD
3-6-5-7
PAY ME IN PENNIES should improve with a race over the surface

FOURTH
6-7-3-1
FINAL EXAM might have found the right spot to graduate

FIFTH
4-8-6-1
ROCK HARD SONG showed nothing in last but likely needed that start

SIXTH
2-6-1-7
ETERNAL BLING fits well in this spot and can win with her best

SEVENTH
5-6-4-2
TURBO STREET will be a short price but will try to bring some long shots home with him

EIGHTH
2-3-5-7
STOLEN GLORY should flash speed here and might be able to go the whole way

NINTH
8-4-7-6
THE BULL chased a couple nice ones in last and might get it done here
