Playing the Ponies

Sam Houston Race Park selections for Wednesday, Feb. 27

Here are my selections for Wednesday. 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). Lots of rain in the area so if the races come off the turf, ignore those picks.

FIRST
7-6-3-1

EASTER SNAP
Might turn the tables on the favorite with the longer distance

SECOND
1-7-5-4
GET FOXY
Needed last off the shelf and class drop might get her home


THIRD

2-3-5-10

HEAT FLASH
Should fare much better in this spot than in the last

FOURTH
1-6-2-4
CHI TOWN CHIEF
Gets one more chance off a non-threatening second

FIFTH
2-10-7-1
MOLLYWARMFLASH
Firster is bred for the grass for Asmussen and the price is fair

SIXTH
7-6-1-3
CORNELIUS SPRINGS
Big class drop might be they key to victory for this one

SEVENTH
4-1-5-2
GET THE BLING
Sharp winner in last should handle step up in conditions

EIGHTH

AUDACIOUS ANGEL
Been sharp last two and should be in the hunt again

TEXANS MAKE SURPRISING CUT

Texans to release prominent player on defense

According to multiple reports, the Texans are waiving LB Zach Cunningham. Cunningham was benched last Sunday for disciplinary reasons, which reportedly stemmed from a missed COVID test. Cunningham was also benched for a quarter earlier in the season for breaking team rules.

According to Ian Rapoport, the Texans will have to eat his 12.8 million dollar cap hit next season.

Cunningham started in seven of the 10 games he’s played this season recording 67 tackles and a forced fumble. The Texans are at a point where there's hardly anyone left on the team that has any name recognition with what's left of the fan base. And now the Texans have another position that will have to be addressed this offseason.

Cunningham will likely command a lot of attention from other teams interested in his services.
