Superfecta Sunday in Houston

Have to get some Turf in our system as we look in on Houston for our Superfecta Sunday.

Sam Houston Race Park Race 8 {John B. Connally Turf Cup~G3~1 1/2 mile~TURF~4 year old Up~Graded Stakes}

An interesting group of eight will hit the Houston grass in this annual stakes race. There is very little speed. Speed numbers are fairly close. A number ship in from other circuits which should give it a great deal more competitiveness. Our task is to thread a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#8 Oscar Nominated (Geroux / Maker) might have the edge with the second highest last out speed number and one quality workout. This lad will stretch out to the distance, but should be quite capable of handling it. He should be tracking the pace closely. He is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#4 Bigger Picture (J. Ortiz / Maker) will submit a mighty challenge with the highest speed number at the distance and four superb peaking workouts. This guy also holds the highest speed number over the Turf. He is another that should be close to the pace.

#5 Greengrassofyoming (Albarado / Maker) should contend with the highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and four hearty workouts. The most seasoned horse in the race, he will be closing gallantly into the stretch.

#1 Domikate (Singh / Pearson) could be in the hunt with the fourth highest last out speed number and two robust workouts. He loves the Turf surface and the Sam Houston course. Expect him to track the pace relatively closely, then spring into the stretch.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#8 Oscar Nominated  +  #4 Bigger Picture  +  #5 Greengrassofyoming  +  #1 Domikate.
