Sam Houston Race Park selections for Tuesday, March 10

Coady Photography

Here are my selections for Tuesday 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

1-9-7-6
BELLA ALICITA comes off a brief layoff and should be very tough


SECOND
6-10-5-1
TAKE THE OVER could offer some value in second start at this condition


THIRD
5-6-10-8
KING BLING should improve in start No. 2


FOURTH
3-10-8-4

SHIRL'S READY was flat in last but should bounce back here

FIFTH
1-3-10-6
ALOO GHOST should improve off the claim and be in the mix

SIXTH
3-8-1-7
STREET DAZZLE will be tough if race moves to the main track


SEVENTH
11-13-2-5
WONDERS OF HISLOVE was in the mix in stakes company


EIGHTH
8-6-3-9
PRANCINGMISTISSY usually earns a piece and should again here


NINTH
5-8-7-4
EXCALIBUR RIDGE has been OK in two starts this meet; a little improvement might do it


TENTH

3-9-8-10
KING PTOLEMY is always in the hunt here and maybe today is the day

Mark Berman is reporting that Michael Brantley and the Astros have agreed on a 2-year contract worth $32 million. Several reports indicated that Brantley would be signing with the Blue Jays, but apparently the deal wasn't final. Berman's report appears to be legit. Check out the tweets below from Brian McTaggart and Carlos Correa.
