Sam Houston Race Park selections for Wednesday, March 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. (These are the picks and format that are available on the free tip sheet at SHRP). Like my picks in the fifth, sixth and seventh races best of all.

FIRST
7-6-4-5
FUDGE PROUD has an annoying habit of running second but this sets up well

SECOND
6-2-3-5
BYARS MELODIE has a nice debut at Delta and should improve

THIRD
7-5-3-6
HIGH CLASS TASTE gets back in for a tag and that might do the trick

FOURTH
9-5-8-1
ELVIS is a well-bred firster for a high-profile barn

FIFTH
3-10-9-5
KONA KATIE had a sharp win in last and likes this course

SIXTH
3-2-5-4
EASY SO EASY had a troubled trip in last and could improve at a price

SEVENTH
4-2-3-6
ALPHA AND OMEGA has a good record here and should be coming late

EIGHTH
3-1-2-6
THE GINJA NINJA freaked in last and could repeat if form holds up

NINTH
7-1-9-8
MABAS looks solid off sharp debut but the 1 could surprise at a price as well

Deshaun Watson will make his Cleveland Browns debut this Sunday against his former team at NRG Stadium. Watson has completed his suspension from the NFL for alleged sexual misconduct with dozens of massage therapists, and this Sunday will be the first game he has played in 700 days.

The Browns sit at 4-7 hoping Watson will be the spark the team needs to stack some wins and get into the Wild Card race. The Texans are still searching for their second win of the season, and many believe the team will be hiring another head coach come January.

With this in mind, who has the worst reputation? The Texans or Deshaun Watson?

It seems like an easy answer with Watson's legal troubles, but upon further review, the answer has to be the Texans. The Texans have hired two consecutive coaches that no other NFL team even interviewed. It seems like no quality candidates have any interest in coaching the Texans. Watson, however, had teams lining up for his services when the Texans decided to trade him.

Be sure to check out the video above as we dive into this topic and make a convincing case, as crazy as it sounds, that Watson is perceived to have a better reputation.
