Betting the ponies

Sam Houston Race Park selections for Wednesday, Feb. 6

Coady Photography

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. If the races come off the turf due to rain, check out Twitter and I will update the picks. (These are the picks and format that are available on the free tip sheet at SHRP). I like betting these midweek cards because most of the money is from off track, which means my picks do not get hammered as much.

FIRST

5-1-2-3
COVER CHARGE has been chasing tough runners and should thrive back on turf

SECOND
5-1-6-2
GET THE BLING might turn the tables on LOOKIECOOKIE this time around

THIRD
10-3-5-6
SARAAB's turf efforts have been solid and might break through in this spot

FOURTH
3-1-5-4
DION lost to the favorite in last but prior efforts would get it done

FIFTH
9-10-3-5
TIZ PLUS gets back to a preferred surface and looks solid

SIXTH
1-5-7-2
FUDGE PROUD will be a short price but looks tough here

SEVENTH
2-8-5-6
HUMOR is one of two Asmussen runners with a huge shot

EIGHTH
8-1-6-3
MOVE IT MABEL showed some life in last and might be sitting on a good one

NINTH

6-11-9-5
ST JOSEPH COUNTY was a beaten fave in last; could bounce back

With the Houston Texans sitting at 1-5 and the Packers coming to town, this seems like the perfect time to consider trading some players and focus on the future of the organization. Make sure to watch the video to find out which 4 players the Texans should consider trading, and why one of these players would shock the fanbase if he's moved. And no, it's not JJ Watt.
