Friday sees a bumper offering of US horse racing action with ten meetings to entertain punters.
They go at Aqueduct, Charles Town, Delta Downs, Golden Gate Fields and Gulfstream, plus there’s racing at Laurel Park, Penn National, Sam Houston Race Park, Santa Anita and Tampa Bay Downs with 91 races in total to look forward to.
Tampa Bay Downs kicks off Friday’s schedule at 17:15 with the last of nine races at 21:21.
The 18:43 Claiming race over one mile is one of Betfred’s ‘Extra Place’ contests, where three places are being paid out instead of two.
Candy Crushem (15/8) is one to watch in this, having previously won nine races between seven furlongs and a mile, while he finished second at this track last time out.
Next up is Laurel Park where eight races are being staged from 17:25-20:57, before Gulfstream takes centre stage with ten races from 17:30-22:14.
Following Gulfstream is the nine-race card at Aqueduct where racing runs from 17:50 until the finale at 21:54.

The 21:25 Allowance Optional Claiming is another of Betfred’s ‘Extra Place’ promotional races and one that has claims in it is Texas Swing (5/2), who is a four-time winner over one mile. Mystic Night (5/2) is dropping in class and should also be able to impress.
Delta Downs comes next with nine races between 18:56-22:40 and Santa Anita gets its programme underway at 20:30 with the last of nine races there scheduled for 00:41.
Golden Gate Fields has nine races between 20:45 and 00:56 and the 21:49 Claiming has a very competitive ten-horse field.
Bourbonwithatwist (13/8) looks like he will lead the way and he has previously won a race over this five-furlong distance to suggest this outing will suit. He’s jhad a couple of recent second-place finishes to underline he’s been there or thereabouts and looks ready to go one better.
Penn National’s nine-race card runs from 23:00-02:36, while Charles Town’s nine races are between 00:00 and 04:02.
Sam Houston Race Park brings Friday’s racing to a close with 00:55 the start time for a ten-race card which ends at 05:09.
