We are back in action at Gulfstream Park on Friday and I have my full card report for an outstanding nine race card. In addition, for my Best Plays I also included some action from Oaklawn Park.

We lost another racetrack on Thursday as Golden Gate Fields announced that they will temporarily close for live racing effective immediately in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

That leaves quarterhorse racing at Los Alamitos as the only horse racing action left in California.

We still have three major tracks going—Gulfstream Park, Oaklawn Park and Tampa Bay Downs and two minor tracks in Fonner Park and Will Rogers Downs.

All of the tracks are racing without spectators and with strict protocols in place to keep the grooms, jockeys and trainers safe. Horses of course cannot contract the virus.

With nearly the entire nation under “stay at home” orders and all major sports shut down, as I have said before having some tracks still in action has been a great diversion.

Let’s hope the tracks stay safe and in action throughout this crisis. If I can get through the next month without having to binge watch “Tiger King” I will be a very happy man.

My Best Plays Report for Friday includes my eight strongest plays from Oaklawn Park and Gulfstream Park.

Horseplayers can stream all the horse racing action using the Watch TVG App. The horse betting company based in the U.S. is offering a risk free bet up to $200 for new players.

Here is the opening race from Gulfstream Park to get the day off to a good start:

GP Race 1 Md $16,000 (1:00 ET)
#2 Capeline 8-1
#3 Princesa Crystal 2-1
#6 Bulldat 7-2
#1 Missandei 9-2

Analysis: Capeline was not a threat after a wide trip in her debut, checking in ninth while beaten 4 3/4 lengths going five furlongs on turf, sent off at 13-1 in a field of 10. She stretches out to a mile here and figures to move forward with the added ground. She is out of a Smart Strike mare that has dropped four winners and three have won on turf. The low profile barn assure we should catch a decent price on this filly and this is not a real tough looking group of bottom level maidens.

Princesa Crystal is coming off a fourth-place finish last out over good ground and is now 0 for 11 in her career. Her best effort came two back on firm ground here she was next to last early, came with a good run and took over the lead heading for home but was run down, beaten a neck. She is out of the turf stakes winner Crystal House ($163,625) who has dropped three turf winners. She has had a few too many chances and her price may be short but she fits against this weak looking group.

Wagering
WIN: #2 to win at 5-1 or better.
EX: 2,3 / 1,2,3,6
TRI: 2,3 / 1,2,3,6 / 1,2,3,6,11

Today’s Featured Race of the Day from Oaklawn Park:

OP Race 5 Md Sp Wt (3:06 CT)
#2 Tempt Fate 3-1
#1 Thornish 6-1
#9 Rockthepulpit 5-1
#11 Pay Dirt 8-1

Analysis: Tempt Fate took the field gate to wire in her debut last December at Fair Grounds but was DQ'd for interference coming out of the gate. He returned here last out where he was sent off at 6-5 against state bred $40,000 maiden claimers but has to settle for third. Three have come out of that race to win next out including the winner Heritage Park, who beat state bred Alw-1 foes on March 28. Blinkers are added as he steps up to the maiden special weight level for his first go off the claim by the Deville barn that is showing a 0 for 3 mark first off the claim. The colt is the first foal to race out of an Archarcharch mare.

Thornish pressed the early pace and battled on gamely in between foes to come up just 3/4 of a length short over a muddy surface in his second career start against state bred $25,000 foes. He caught a wet track in his debut two back where hew dueled for the early lead and weakened to finish third. The winner of that race was Call Me Derby, who beat $16,000 non-winners of tow in his next outing here on March 8. He has four sibs that are winners including minor stakes winner Najran Breeze ($102,733). He steps up in class but fits here and has experience over wet tracks which he might see again today.

Wagering
WIN: #2 to win at 5-2 or better.
EX: 1,2 / 1,2,9,11
TRI: 1,2 / 1,2,9,11 / 1,2,6,9,11

Today’s Featured Race of the Day from Gulfstream Park:

GP Race 7 Clm $12,500 (4:10 ET)
#2 Interest 3-1
#1 Magicgirl 12-1
#9 Lemon Scat 9-2
#7 Silly Notion 6-1

Analysis: Interest drops into an easier spot after getting off poorly when stumbling coming out of the gate and was never a threat in an eighth-place finish against $25,000 starter optional claimers in her first start for the barn. She graduated three back for a $25,000 tag on the turf here. The blinkers come off and she catches a much easier group here. Saez picks up the call and with a better start she looks like the one to beat here for her high % barn.

Magicgirl takes the hood off as she makes her first start on turf. She graduated on the main track at GP West in her debut and was a good second against $16,000 foes in her first start against winners. She was claimed out of that race by the Downing barn and she has not run back to her first two efforts. She is out of a Full Mandate mare that has dropped three other winners and two have won on turf. She draws the rail and she has some early zip which should be enough to put her o or close to the lead. Wort tossing in the mix if she goes off near her 12-1 morning line.

Wagering
WIN: #2 to win at 5-2 or better.
EX: 1,2 / 1,2,7,9
TRI: 1,2 / 1,2,7,9 / 1,2,7,9,10

Live Longshots:
These are price plays for exotic players looking to find a couple of extra contenders to use in their trifecta and superfecta wagers. Or for those with smaller bankrolls, you might want to get in a small win-place wager.

Gulfstream Park
R1: #2 Capeline 8-1
R2: 31 Ain’t Wasting Time 10-1
R4: #8 Abdaa 8-1
R4: #6 Starship Bubba 8-1
R7: #1 Magicgirl 12-1
R8: #3 So Cunning 10-1
R9: #7 Cherokee Sound 15-1
R9: #2 Veer 12-1
R9: #1 Truly 12-1

Friday's Best Bet: Kurilov gets pace to chase at Oaklawn Park
by Jarrod Horak
April 3, 2020

Friday's 8th race from Oaklawn Park is an optional claiming event for 4-year-olds and up traveling a mile and a sixteenth on the main track (Post Time 5:38 p.m. EDT).

Click here for Oaklawn Park Entries, Results

#8 KURILOV (4-1) has found consistency in his last four starts for Brad Cox. He exits back-to-back local wins at this distance as the chalk, and his finishing kick should play well in a race with plenty of pace.

#5 Pirate’s Punch (3-1) turned everything around last summer and has now fired trifecta shots in six straight (3 wins). He is probably the one to catch under Tyler Baze.

#4 Gato Guapo (9-2) fired trifecta shots in nine of his last ten starts and should make his presence felt throughout for the productive Mojica-Diodoro team.

#6 Laughing Fox (10-1) adds blinkers and gets pace to chase. All three of his wins were at Oaklawn Park including a pair at this distance.

#3 C Z Rocket (6-1) is a first time gelding for Al Stall Jr. and he is entered for the $100k tag. He is 4-for-13 overall but 0-for-2 at Oaklawn and 0-for-3 at this distance.

#9 Rated R Superstar (6-1) faced stakes foes in eight of his last ten starts. He will probably lag early and make a late bid, and a minor award might be the best he can hope for.

Wagers:

#8 to win

    Betting On Virtual Motorsports Betting On Virtual Motorsports Virtual motorsport races are drawing a lot of attention from sportsbooks and their players. For those in the sports betting world, the cancellation of major sports has left us with few wagering options. But while fans of basketball, baseball, or hockey are patiently waiting to see their favorite players return to action, motor racing bettors don't have to wait at all. Competitive motor racing barely missed a beat when COVID-19 shut down sports worldwide, thanks to the realism of virtual racing simulators. These programs are used regularly by drivers to keep their skills sharp without the high cost of real track practice. Therefore, many of the top racers in the world entered eSports tournaments just days after real-world events were canceled. The first of these events were held in March and became so popular that sportsbooks began to take notice and offer odds. This is an excellent opportunity for any bookmaker to use the momentum of this sport to fill the gaps left in the absence of most leagues. The success of these events just goes to show how far the realism of simulation racing has come in the eSports era. With professionals now involved, along with the sanctioning bodies of F1, NASCAR & IndyCar, sim racing has been put into the spotlight. Make no mistake; the age of competitive virtual motorsports is upon us. With that in mind, let's explore the big three leagues going on right now that you can bet on. eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series The NASCAR season was put on hiatus after just four races, but a new form of the sport is experiencing an explosion in popularity. The NASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational was created to pick up where the Cup Series left off and use the iRacing platform to finish the season. Taking place each Sunday, this series pits NASCAR drivers and dignitaries against one another on a virtual track. Names such as Dale Earnhardt Jr., Denny Hamlin, Jeff Gordon, and Kyle Bush are a big reason for the early success. The iRacing platform makes the action feel as genuine as possible and is used for training on off days. Denny Hamlin suggested that around half of the people who work for or with NASCAR already have home setups, including wheels and pedals in their homes. This allowed for a quick transition for many races from the real to the digital world. The success of this new form of competition has been undeniable. The races run so far have been watched by hundreds of thousands of people worldwide to rave reviews. The odds are available now for upcoming races at Dover and Martindale speedways. William Byron is 3/1 favorite to win both after taking the checkered flag in the last two races and Top-8 finishes in the other two. Timmy Hill is also a guy to keep an eye on. Hill has finished in the Top-3 in all but one race this year and is 15/2 heading into Dover. INDYCAR iRacing Challenge iRacing has also teamed up with INDYCAR to host a virtual racing series while real races are on hold. The competitors are a mix of NTT INDYCAR Series drivers, along with some special invitees such as F1 racer Lando Norris. Norris was a special guest driver for Arrow McLaren for last week's race at the Circuit of the Americas. The 20-year-old dominated the field in fact as he beat out the other 33 drivers on the virtual road course in Texas. Norris had more than 20,000 viewers watching his Twitch stream alone. The races last around 70 minutes and are broadcasted live on NBCSN with live commentary just like a day at the track would have. There is even a pre-race show featuring a national anthem presentation and more. The list of drivers includes seven Indianapolis 500 winners and features names like Josef Newgarden, Scott Dixon, Ryan Hunter-Reay, and Simon Pagenaud. F1 eSports Virtual Grand Prix Series With the real-world Formula 1 series postponed, the F1 eSports Virtual GP series has stepped into the spotlight. Professional drivers, retired legends, full-time gamers, and celebrities go head to head in events that mirror the real-life series. This gives bettors a chance to continue watching and wagering on competitive racing on weekends. The major difference with the F1 Virtual Series is the platform that is utilized. Formula One has its own branded title developed by Codemasters. While not as realistic as the iRacing software, it is still a popular alternative for fans to watch. It must also be mentioned that this series is not a part of the competitive eSports series that is also currently active. This series is more of an exhibition event and features racers of varying driving and gaming talent. Races are 28 laps or less and follow qualifying to determine the starting positions for each race. The first race saw participants ranging from current F1 drivers Nicholas Latifi and Lando Norris, reserve talent Stoffel Vandoorne and Esteban Gutierrez, and legend Nico Hülkenburg. Formula 2 racers, Academy drivers, and pros from other series filled out the starting grid. Odds for these events have been popular betting options over the last few weeks. Heading into the next event, Team Renault is favorites to win a 4/1 with McLaren (5/1) and Mercedes (6/1), taking the next two spots on the odds board. The latter is an interesting play at those odds considering Guiterrez and Vandoorne are both F1 test drivers and gamers, making Mercedes a strong contender. These are just three of the major series going on right now, but IMSA, Porche, and the WRC all have eSports events running on a weekly basis. These series will continue to run and provide betting options even when real-world racing returns to action. This is the perfect time for the sports betting industry to embrace not only eSports but the competitive virtual racing scene. PayPerHead® agents can stand to benefit massively from this emerging sport. Especially during these trying times, having a weekly event for fans to bet on is a powerful thing. Any time you can get your clients interested in new events is time well spent. If your pay per head service provider does not include eSports on their list of odds, then it might be time to find a better option. At PayPerHead®, we pride ourselves on offering odds on a slew of virtual and simulation sports to keep your players busy while we await the return of major sports nationwide. If you are ready to switch providers to a company that offers a better variety of odd, then head over to the PayPerHead® and see what offers we have for new clients today!
