US Horse Racing Odds: Saturday 5th March

Gulfstream Park

US racing fans have a bumper 10 meetings to look forward to on Saturday, with Gulfstream getting things going at 17:10 and proceedings being wrapped up by the 04:44 at Sam Houston Race Park.

There are a full 13 races at Gulfstream between 17:10 and 23:12 and Betfred are offering their Extra Place Race promotion on five races, including the closer, a Stakes race over a mile.

Lia Marina (SP) won at this level in her last outing at this course and could strike again for Christophe Clement.

There are 10 races at Tampa Bay Downs between 17:16 and 21:48, while there is one less contest at Laurel Park from 17:25 to 21:23.

The Extra Place Race is on offer in both the opener and the 19:57, an Allowance, where Response Time (SP) goes searching for a hat-trick and has every chance having been handed stall one.

They go off 10 times at Aqueduct between 17:50 and 22:27 and once again, the Extra Place Race promotion is available on the opener.

The 19:52 also carries the offer and it seems a Sensibleconclusion to back Edward Barker’s charge in this Maiden Special Weight, having improved with each of his career runs so far.

Both Delta Downs and Fonner Park host 10 races, the former going from 18:55 and 23:19, while the latter gets underway at 19:30 and concludes at 23:33.

Out west at Santa Anita, they host 11 contests from 20:00 to 01:00 and punters will have five contests involving the Extra Place Race to explore.

The opener is included and involves an interesting sort in Gold Phoenix (SP) who scored on debut for Kieran Cotter at Dundalk in February 2021 but moved Stateside with Philip D Amato. After a runner-up showing in his stable bow at this track in January, he could well progress again.

The real night owls can also catch action from Charles Town (00:00-03:32), Remington Park (00:00- 04:57) and Sam Houston Race Park (00:55-04:44) which concludes another fascinating day of US racing.
