Sam Houston – Friday, February 12, 2021 

The below outlines our thoughts behind the construction of a late PICK 4 and PICK 3 ticket for Friday night at Sam Houston Race Park.

RACE 6

Must Use # 8 Contenders # 1/1A, 6

#8 Pomeroy Haze has the Trainer/Jockey 2 yr advantage, present in 60% of past winners and 80% of past runners who earned 2nd place for this race profile.

RACE 7

Must Use #8 Contenders # 1, 4 50% of past winners ranked 1st for Percent of Horses Beat, this points to the chalk #8 American. Otherwise E2 pace and speed rank were the dominant factors in past races, so we look at #1 Drasario and #4 Centastic. Regardless, this race should produce a chalky outcome

RACE 8

Must Use #4, 8 Contenders #3, 9

Past winners for this race condition had ranked in the top four for Best Speed Last 3 and top four for Percent of Horses Beat. The #4 Lynah Rink is the only horse that meets both criteria. The #8 Zella Rose has the late pace advantage which is helpful and the #9 has the top jockey.

RACE 9

Must Use #1, 7, 9

For this race type, past horses that made the exacta ranked in the top four for both Earnings + Last Purse. The heavy ML favorite #6 Chicks Dig Munny doesn’t meet either criteria, however the #1, 7, 9 all do.
