PLAYING THE PONIES

Sam Houston Race Park selections for Tuesday, March 12

Kentuckyderby.com.

Here are my selections for Tuesday. 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

1-5-4-3
MEXIA was a beaten favorite in last but Asmussen horses tend to do well stretching out


SECOND
2-5-7-6
SWEETDREAMSTONIGHT should be closer with a cleaner break


THIRD
1-2-4-7
HEIR OF STORM/JACK WITH SEVEN
Both Broberg runners look very tough in this spot


FOURTH
2-8-9-3
HEAT FLASH struggled in last in New Orleans but prior efforts put him right there


FIFTH
8-6-9-7
SOUL SEEKIN has two nice efforts at Delta; looks like a two-horse race on paper


SIXTH
9-7-1-5
OKIE TORNADO is a firster with solid turf pedigree and decent works


SEVENTH
2-6-5-4
KWIK should improve in second start over the surface


EIGHTH
6-5-1-4
BLUSHING KITTEN just missed versus a similar group in last


NINTH
1-8-9-7
TOUCH EM UP looks like the stronger half of a solid entry

This week, ESPN released their post-NFL Draft power rankings and lo and behold, the Texans are out of the basement, ranked No. 28. Which is up from No. 32, when the first rankings came out post-free agency.

Another interesting note about the power rankings, the Jets are now behind the Texans after having what was considered to be an all-time great draft haul. Be sure to check out the video as we make sense of these updated rankings, and debate Texans vs Jags, Davis Mills vs. Zach Wilson, and much more!
