Sam Houston Race Park selections for Monday, Feb. 13 with some suggested plays

How to use the picks: These are the same picks you can get on the free tip sheet available  at shrp.com and on track. They are not meant to necessarily be in exact order, but more an opinion on likely winners.  I am assuming you have some knowledge or have listened to Acing Racing 2016.  We give a little more detail here than what you get on the tip sheet.

FIRST

3-5-1-6
RB NASH is a win machine and should be tough
Digging deeper: The 3 horse has been a win machine, and will have to be off his game to lose this. It can happen, though. Both the 1 and 5 have run well enough in the past and could improve. Might just keep it simple with 3 over 1-5 exactas.
SECOND
1-3-5-7
The Asmussen entry looks tough even if one scratches
Digging deeper: Another one with a short-priced favorite that is hard to get around. Either Asmussen horse will likely go off at a short price, and that’s a lock if they both go.  The 3 horse might be the only one with a shot. Passing on this race.
THIRD
3-5-9-7
JOHN LOUIS DOC might have found the right spot
Digging deeper: A little more wide open than the first two, it is a good one to spread a little in and start a pick three play. Will use the 3-5-7-9.
FOURTH
5-3-9-10
PERFECT SUMMER has little turf experience but could surprise
Digging deeper: Another to use the top four in the pick three. The 5 horse should handle the surface switch and picks up a good turf rider in Nolan. Will also pay to win and place.
FIFTH
1-6-7-5
HANNAH BO BABY should get a nice trip just behind the speed.
Digging deeper: Like the 1 here across the board, and also in the pick 3s, maybe tossing the 6-7 on the tickets. Also like the 6 as a back wheel key in the trifectas 1-5-7-8 with 6 with all, 1-5-7-8 with all with 6.
SIXTH
4-1-9-10
FOG HAPPENS has been facing tough customers
Digging deeper: Wide open if you can get past the 4. I will key him with the 1-5-7-9-10 first and second in exactas and tris.
SEVENTH
2-9-7-8
WINGS OF SILVER should improve in his second career start
Digging deeper: Will start a pick three here with 1-2-6-7-8-9-10. Lots of possibilities here, including a few second time starters who could improve.
EIGHTH
3-5-7-4
STARSHIP MISCHIEF has shown promise in both career starts
Digging deeper: Feel pretty confident just taking the 3-5 in the pick three here and taking a stand.
NINTH
9-3-1-8
ALL OUT OF ACES has been working well after a short layoff
Digging deeper: The 9 should romp here, but will toss the 1-3 in the last leg of the pick 3.
TENTH
8-9-2-7
DUKE OF KENT has a nice win over the surface
Digging deeper: The 8 horse is an across the board play here, and also worth playing in exactas with the 2-4-9-7.
Good luck.
