US Horse Racing Odds: Sunday 8th May

Belmont Park

It’s another busy of US racing action on Sunday with meetings from Laurel Park, Belmont Park, Gulfstream, Hawthorne, Santa Anita, Golden Gate Fields and Mountaineer, while there is also Canada’s Woodbine event to get stuck into.

First up is Laurel Park’s eight-race card, the action in Maryland running from 17:40 until 21:07, and there are extra places being paid out in the 18:38 and the 19:06.

The 18:38 is a quick-fire contest over 7f and Honor Your Mother (9/4), for trainer Jason Smith, could be one to watch out for after recording finishes of 123 in the last three outings.

Belmont Park’s nine-race card is up next, starting at 18:00 and ending with the 22:24, before the attention then turns to a bumper 10-race offering from Gulfstream (18:05-23:02).

There are four races covered by the extra place promotion at Gulfstream – the 18:39, 19:47, 20:54 and the 21:59 – and the latter of those has attracted a field of seven for the 6f 110y contest.

Karla Sofia (4/1), Winkiwinki (3/1) and Dignified (25/1) are all last-time-out winners and expected to be in contention once again, while Stellar Ride (3/1) has recorded back-to-back second-place finishes and could feature again.

It’s off to Canada next for the meeting at Woodbine, a nine-race card that runs from 18:10 until 22:29, and there are more extra places to take advantage of in the 18:42, 19:46, 20:53 and the 21:25.

There are seven races taking place at Hawthorne (20:50-23:20) before the focus then turns to Santa Anita for a bumper 10-race card, the opener going off at 21:00 and the finale set for 01:43.

Golden Gate Fields is the penultimate meeting of the day, with nine races going from 21:45 until 01:58, before Mountaineer’s eight-race event (00:00-02:55) brings the action to a close.
