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
