PLAYING THE PONIES

Sam Houston Race Park selections for Wednesday, March 11

Coady photography

Here are my selections for Wednesday 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

6-1-4-5

TWO STEPPING DISCO is worth a flyer in a struggling group


SECOND
1-2-6-4
BRIGHTEST was close in stakes company in last


THIRD
6-1-4-5
TROY OUNCE'S last race can be tossed; priors are worth a look


FOURTH
2-1-7-6
SHANGHAI WOMAN struggled in last but can be competitive with best effort


FIFTH
5-10-1-2
D'ROCKETMAN needed last; in the mix if the race stays on turf

SIXTH

6-1-5-3
PASTOR VAN stretches back out and should fare better at this distance


SEVENTH
1-3-5-4
Entry looks tough here; price will be short but either horse could win this


EIGHTH
1-4-8-6
MR TICKLE had his win streak snapped in last; could start a new one


NINTH

8-5-3-4
DECORATED FOR GOLD is consistent for a barn that is running well here


TENTH
9-10-2-6
CAT'S HONOR was in good form in Oklahoma; should be in the mix if ready off break

After the Texans recorded a win over the Saints on Saturday, we discuss some of the young players that really caught or attention.

Will Dameon Pierce's impressive performance push him into a starting role at some point this year? And better yet, how many carries should we expect him to get in the Texans backfield?

Plus, what about the defense? Jalen Pitre had some nice moments in his second series of action at safety. We discuss what plans Lovie Smith has for the rookie from Baylor.
