Here are my selections for Saturday night 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

1-4-2-6
UPTOWN FLYING FLYNN just missed in last and could get it done


SECOND
1-3-2-4
Three-pronged entry could easily sweep the top three spots here


THIRD
4-3-2-1
MADIBA deserves another look shortening up from an OK effort at a mile


FOURTH

5-8-7-2
SWISS DOT likely needed last; past efforts are good enough to win this


FIFTH
5-7-8-9
GILES was a beaten favorite in last but similar effort could get it done

SIXTH

2-5-3-7
LITTLE CODE has some solid efforts and should be in the hunt if race stays on the grass


SEVENTH

8-3-1-2
PRINCE JET gets Lasix off a speed and fade debut; should be tough to catch


EIGHTH
8-4-9-1
COMPLETE SENSE should be in the mix if she goes; if not KERTARA looks solid


NINTH
4-5-2-1
TAKE CHARGE WOMAN has solid works for debut and could be ready


TENTH

2-5-10-3
MO AMERICAN is a son of Triple Crown winner American Pharaoh; should be tough
