We will stay busy at Gulfstream Park on Saturday as they offer up a 12-race card that gets underway at 12:45 ET.

We also will head out to Oaklawn Park where today’s feature is the only stakes race in the U.S., the $100,000 Purple Martin for three-year-old fillies going six furlongs. Four of my strongest plays from Oaklawn Park are included in today’s Best Plays Report.

It is still hard to believe where we are at. Under normal circumstances we would have had three major Road to the Kentucky Derby points races this afternoon—the Santa Anita Derby, the Blue Grass at Keeneland and the Wood Memorial at Aqueduct.

It does not look as if we will have additional tracks opening in April, and May is even in question. However, between Gulfstream Park, Oaklawn Park and Tampa Bay Downs we still have three major tracks going, as well as minor tracks Fonner Park and Will Rogers Downs.

There are quarterhorses going at Remington Park and Los Alamitos and we still have late night action from Australia, Hong Kong and Japan.

So I think we are still pretty lucky to have action going pretty much every day and night for now.

We have national television coverage today as well. FS1 will broadcast the action from 1:30 to 6:00 ET. The NBC Sports Network will simulcast the TVG Network feed from 4:00 to 7:00 ET.

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.

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

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

GP Race 1 Md $16,000 (12:45 ET)
#5 Big Treasure 8-1
#3 Punchline 7-2
#8 Blessed Journey 2-1
#11 Perfect Enough 15-1

Analysis: Big Treasure drops out of a $25,000 maiden claimer where the colt raced near the back of the pack while saving ground and finished evenly in a fifth-place finish, beaten 2 3/4 lengths. This guy has been in the mix in each of his last five starts including a nose loss in his second career start at GP West. He drops into an easier spot here and catches a field here he should be able to handle. he has a solid turf pedigree, by Treasure Beach out of a Big Brown mare, this her first foal to race.

Punchline chased the early pace and weakened to finish fifth last out over good ground for a $32,000 tag. He showed some signs of live after getting outrun in his two previous starts. His last was his first go on turf and he has a solid turf pedigree, by Into Mischief out of an Unbridled's Song mare that has dropped three other foals to race, no turf winners and just one dirt winner to date. He faces a softer group here for the Jerkens barn.

Wagering
WIN: #5 to win at 9-2 or better.
EX: 3,5 / 3,5,8,11
TRI: 3,5 / 3,5,8,11 / 2,3,5,8,11

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

GP Race 10 OClm $100,000C (5:20 ET)
#2 Kroy 6-1
#11 Halladay 6-1
#3 First Premio 7-2
#4 Dr. Shane 9-2

Analysis: Kroy is making his first start since a runner up finish here last June. He lands in the Gargan barn that has won with six of his last dozen runners (with a +ROI) coming back off a +180-day layoff. His last win came on dirt, but this guy has won 4 of 11 over the turf here, his last turf win coming at a mile in Aug. of 18. he made just three starts last year before sitting the sidelines. Decent works on the morning tab and the barn has been on fire this year, hitting at a 39% clip.

Halladay tracked the early pace and ducked inward bumping a foe and then did not have enough punch left late in a fourth-place finish in the Tampa Bay (G3). He won the Tropical Park Derby two back here in a sharp outing. He has landed in the money in seven of his eight trips on turf. Saez picks up the call here for Pletcher and this guy has earned figures in three of his last four starts good enough to win in this spot. The 6-1 morning line looks more than fair.

Wagering
WIN: #2 to win at 4-1 or better.
EX: 2,11 / 2,3,4,11
TRI: 2,11 / 2,3,4,11 / 2,3,4,7,11

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

OP Race 9 The Purple Martin (5:09 CT)
#8 Frank's Rockette 5-2
#2 Ring Leader 6-1
#1 Kimari 4-1
#4 Edgeway 3-1

Analysis: Frank's Rockette is coming off a huge win in the Any Limit last out at Gulfstream Park at six furlongs in her first start off a 4 1/2-month break. The filly set the early fractions and then trounced the field by seven lengths in fast time. She has not missed landing in the exacta in five starts, running second in back to back Grade 1 races in New York last year. She owns a solid pace profile throughout and can win this from up front or more likely to track just off the pace. The Mott barn is 23% winners (with a +ROI) with runners making their second start off a 45-180-day break. She is bred to handle a wet track.

Ring Leader may offer some value here with our top pick likely to go off as the short priced favorite. The filly cuts back to a sprint after setting the early fractions and weakened to finish fifth in the Honeybee (G3) here going two turns. She was perfect in three starts sprinting including winning the Dixie Belle here at six furlongs two back. She beat Alw-1 optional claimers in the mud three back. She owns solid early and mid pace numbers and looks as if she is going to be a fair price in this spot.

Kimari has not been on the main track since breaking her maiden going 4 1/2 furlongs at Keeneland in her debut by 15 lengths. She missed by just a head in a 25-horse field in the Queen Mary Stakes (G2) on turf at Royal Ascot in her next start. She makes her first start since making a mild late rally to finish fourth in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint (G2) against the boys at Santa Anita at five furlongs. She has always worked well on dirt and popped a bullet work at Keeneland on March 30. The Ward barn is 22% winners with runners coming back off a 61-180-day layoff.

Wagering
WIN: #8 to win at 2-1 or better.
EX: 2,8 / 1,2,4,8
TRI: 2,8 / 1,2,4,8 / 1,2,4,6,8

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.

R1: #5 Big Treasure 8-1

Saturday's Best Bet: Kimari can return running in Purple Martin
by Jarrod Horak April 3, 2020

Saturday's 9th race from Oaklawn Park is the $100,000 Purple Martin Stakes for 3-year-old fillies dashing six furlongs on the main track (Post Time 6:09 p.m. EDT).

#1 KIMARI (4-1) aired in her dirt sprint bow at Keeneland last spring, and just missed in a 25-horse field at Ascot second time out. She returned to the states and easily went all the way in the Bolton Landing Stakes at Saratoga, and rallied from off the pace to defeat males in the Indian Summer Stakes after that. She went to the sidelines after a rallying 4th in the Breeder’s Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint (G2). She has three bullets in her holster and reunites with her winning rider Mike Smith.

#8 Frank’s Rockette (5-2) fired exacta shots in all five starts and was strong throughout in her 2020 bow in the Any Limit Stakes at Gulfstream Park Feb. 22. She drew well and her early-pressing versatility should serve her well in a race with plenty of pace.

#4 Edgeway (3-1) rolled to a big local debut win from the inside post Feb. 29. John Sadler’s $275k purchase is fast and should be out there winging.

#6 Lexi On the Move (8-1) stalked and scored in both course/distance starts for the productive Cohen/Diodoro team. She gets tested for class.

    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!
