PLAYING THE PONIES

Sam Houston Race Park selections for Wednesday, March 4

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
2-4-3-5
HOME EARLY SHIRLEY will be a short price but looks tough


SECOND
2-7-6-1
PRAETORIAN might have found the right spot for a breakthrough


THIRD
6-4-3-5
RAMAAH was an easy winner in last and could repeat


FOURTH

5-6-3-1
KARATE HOTTIE is in very sharp form and should be tough


FIFTH

6-2-3-5
BATTLESHIP BEVO has a nice effort over the surface

SIXTH
7-9-8-4
HOBOKEN looks like another shrewd Broberg claim


SEVENTH
2-3-5-4
COUNTENANCE should be competitive on either surface


EIGHTH
7-9-2-1
MISS SPICY has not shown much last two but class drop and turnback should help


NINTH
7-8-6-2
FLIGHT TIME had a rough go in last but should fare better here


TENTH
6-7-1-9
QUICK PAY had trouble in last and should bounce back
