There is plenty of racing to look forward to across the United States on Friday, with 10 meetings scheduled to take place.
Tampa Bay Downs will be our first port of call, as they will go to post in Florida for a nine-race card from 17:30-21:32, while further north in Maryland, Laurel Park will host nine races from 17:40-21:58, with the 20:51 Allowance there set to benefit from Betfred’s ‘Extra Place’ promotion.
Keeneland’s 10-race offering will start quickly on the heels of the action at Laurel Park, as they run there from 18:00-22:48, with the races at 20:08 and 21:12 again seeing Betfred’s ‘Extra Place’ offer come into play.
The 22:16 Grade Three Baird Doubledogdare Stakes is also worth looking out for from Keeneland, as there could be another victory on the cards for Malathaat (4/7 fav), who has won on six of her last eight starts, with her last five outings coming at Grade One level.
Back in Florida, Gulfstream will host nine races from 18:05-22:23. Again Betfred’s ‘Extra Place’ promotion will be available there for the races at 18:37 and 21:17.

That offer will also be available for the opening race of Aqueduct’s nine-race meeting that begins at 18:20 and concludes at 22:32.
The 20:54 Claiming from Aqueduct will also see Betfred’s ‘Extra Place’ offer come into play, which could be beneficial given Viradia (4/1), Barista Vixen (13/8 fav) and the fast finishing Guns Blazing (7/2) are all expected to challenge.
Golden Gate Fields will take centre stage in California, with their nine-race card due to get underway at 21:15 before concluding in the early hours of Saturday morning, with the final race set to go to post at 01:36.
It will also be a late start at Penn National, with the eight-race card there due to go from 23:00-02;10, while Evangeline Downs will host nine races beginning at 23:30 and concluding at 03:07.
The 23:57 Claiming from Evangeline Downs is another that will benefit from Betfred’s ‘Extra Place’ offer, Charli Michael (SP) and Commander Scott (SP) could be the main protagonists in that one.
The final two meetings of the day will both get underway at midnight, with Charles Town’s eight-race offering concluding at 03:32, while the 12th and final race of Remington Park’s card will go off at 04:57.
