Sam Houston Race Park picks for Saturday, Jan. 18

SHRP

Opening night was OK; three winners, a couple other top picks nailed on the wire and a few exactas and trifectas. Our two long shot plays ran third and fourth, respectively. So a decent performance but we expect better tonight. Several good races and some nice stakes. We like the fourth, fifth, sixth, eighth and ninth races best tonight.

Good luck.
