Horse Races Today: Thursday's Churchill Downs Analysis & Odds
May 20, 2020
By Mike Dempsey

In this topsy turvy world we now live in, this year’s Triple Crown is getting a major shakeup, as the $1 million Belmont Stakes (G1) will now kick off the 2020 classic races for three-year-olds.

Belmont Park announced they will open for racing on June 3 and the Belmont Stakes has been scheduled for June 20. The race will have a distance switch from 1 1/2 miles to 1 1/8 miles.


Some horseplayers are upset with the distance cutback, but it really makes sense as most trainers would not be excited about running 1 1/2 miles after many of the Kentucky Derby preps were canceled due to the pandemic.

The Kentucky Derby (G1) is set for Sept. 5 and the Preakness Stakes (G1) will conclude the Triple Crown on Oct. 5.

Some are saying an asterisk should be added to this year’s Triple Crown, but I think we should reserve that for Bonds, Armstrong and the Astros.

The gap between the Derby and Preakness is normally two weeks, giving trainers little incentive to run back so quickly except for the Derby winner. With four weeks between the races this year, it should mean a bigger and more competitive field for the Preakness and you could make an argument the Triple Crown will be much harder to win with more spacing between the races.

The June 20 date for the Belmont Stakes is exciting. Other sports likely will still be on the sidelines. NBC will cover the action during a three-hour telecast and there will be five supporting stakes on what will be a blockbuster betting card.

Even with no fans in attendance, the betting handle could easily top years where there was a Triple Crown hanging in the balance.

In a crazy year in which sports have basically come to a complete halt, it is hard to believe the Triple Crown countdown is here and we are only a month away from kicking it off.

Fox Sports 2 will cover the action from Churchill Downs from 2:00 to 6:00 ET. In addition, 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 $300 for new players.

Here is the opening race from Churchill Downs to get the day off to a good start:

Churchill Downs Race 1 Analysis - 5/21
#2 Mad Maddy 3-1
#4 Tequila Queen 2-1
#3 Hopeful Princess 6-1
#5 Prettyhappy 15-1

Analysis: Mad Maddy makes her debut for the Asmussen barn that is 17% winners with first timers. This gal is by Triple Crown winner American Pharoah out of an unraced Tale of the Cat mare, this her first foal to race. She has done most of her prep work at Keeneland and has one morning drill over the main track here. This is the barn's first juvie firster this season. She looks ready to go and this field is made up mostly of barns with weak numbers with debut runners.

Tequila Queen is sent out by Ward who does have good numbers with firsters, hitting at a 28% clip. The trainer is just 1 for 7 with two-year-old first timers this season and they have all been bet. This filly was a $325,000 purchase, also by the Triple Crown winner. She is out of the stakes winner Agave Kiss ($339,400 who was a really good sprinter that won 6 of her 10 starts, a Grade 3 winner and Grade 1 placed. She has dropped two foals to race and they are a combined 0 for 8. A tough call here as the Ward firsters don't seem to be showing the same zest as in previous springs but not much else in here to get excited about.

Today’s Featured Race of the Day from Churchill Downs:

Churchill Downs Featured Race 8 Analysis - 5/21
#1 Addison 9-2
#5 Moorac 8-1
#6 Princess Phone 9-2
#4 Spun Eazy 7-2

Analysis: Addison drops in for a tag here facing non-winners of two. Last out he raced in last while toward the outside and could not make up much ground in a fourth-place finish, catching a racing strip that was kind to inside speed. He put in a solid effort on turf two back, checking in third and placed second via a DQ. Three back he tracked the early pace and finished up well in a runner up finish at Gulfstream Park at six furlongs, again catching a surface that was kind to speed. He yesterday going a one turn mile for a $30,000 tag last November and sure looks primed for a top effort here. I like the jock switch to Talamo and the 9-2 looks fair although he may end up a bit lighter.

Moorac stalked the early pace while in behind foes, was in some traffic and finished up well while no match for the gate to wire winner and getting beaten two lengths for the runner up spot. The winner was Cherished, who came back to beat $50,000 starter optional claimers in his next start at Oaklawn Park on April 19. He has not been long on dirt and is bred to handle more ground, by Jack Milton out of a Maria's Mon mare. The barn is 0 for 17 moving runners from sprint to route. Now going back five years the numbers look much better, the barn hitting at a 17% clip on the stretch out.

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.

Churchill Downs
R1: #5 Prettyhappy 15-1
R3: #11 Beauty Day 8-1
R5: #5 Jersey Agenda 8-1
R6: #2 Mineyourownmalone 8-1
R7: #5 Winandyourin Gin 12-1
R8: #5 Moorac 8-1
R10: #3 Eden 12-1999

    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!
