Brian Nadeau's Daily Picks

Gulfstream Park - Race #1
Picks Notes
#4 Windfall Profit Price player ran well while wide the entire way in a return she needed at Tampa off the layoff, should only be tighter here, meets a solid, though unspectacular crew, and seems poised to take a big move forward, in what is a confident circuit switch as well; upset special.
#5 Acts Like Artie Improving Maker charge really stepped up her game last time, when 2nd, beaten just a head, with a big figure (for these), so if she moves forward again, which is entirely possible after just three starts, the rest will have a hard time handling that kind of race; huge chance.
#1 Setting the Mood ML favorite will be bet hard for Pletcher off the close 2nd on debut, and she's another who should build off that encouraging run, from the perfect draw too, but she's also going to be overbet, and is no faster than about a half dozen or so entered here; not sold on her chances.
Race Summary The price will be right on the 4, and it needs to be, as this is a much tougher group than the one she just faced, but there's upside galore here, and the risk-reward will be there, so give her a look in all the slots, and especially to kick off the early Pk5 as well, since she may fall through the wagering cracks, which would knock a good percentage of the tickets out right off the bat.

Gulfstream Park - Race #4
Picks Notes
#5 Cassey's Girl MSW dropper was a modest 7th on the dirt in her debut in what was a solid race for the level, as the second-place finisher came back to win, and now she takes the biggest drop in racing for Lynch, who is a stiff 26% with this angle, and note Saez jumps aboard as well; look out.
#7 Fractorzation Expected heavy favorite with Irad is another MSW dropper, and she wins this for fun if she runs back to her lone turf start two-back, but that was in November, and yikes, that dirt run when last seen in December was ugly, and now she returns for a tag too; scary, but no lock.
#1 Twilight Intriguing newcomer ran well in a pair of turf MSW's at Lone Star last year for Asmussen, and while the July layoff is a worry, not to mention she goes to Olivares, who hasn't started a runner all year, he does name a top local jock in Zayas, so there could be some intent; worth a look.
Race Summary You should get a hint of value on the 5, since they will bet the 7 hard, but there seems to be reason to think she's waking up in a big way here, and that this might in fact have been the spot Lynch had in mind all along, so give her a look in all the slots, and especially the early Pk5/Pk4 as well, since there's no guarantee the heavy favorite is still in one piece, and the rest of these are no great shakes to begin with, so it's not like the pick will need to freak to make a dent.

Gulfstream Park - Race #7
Picks Notes
#1 Valdocco Stalker just missed when he settled last time and made a run to be 2nd, beaten just a head, and while this group is tougher, it's also loaded with speed, and a potential dicey favorite too, and value abounds here; expecting a huge run.
#3 Star Juancho Aforementioned favorite may indeed be dicey, as he changes trainers and subsequently drops from 50k to 6.25k, but Irad is here, and D'Angelo is 3-for-7 at the meet, so you'll have to take the short price if interested; tread very lightly here.
#5 Making a Mark Longshot invades from FG for Roussel, who won with his firster starter here the other day, and if you're not familiar with him, he's a sharp Midwest trainer that knows the score, and brought a crew here that can compete; do not ignore.
Race Summary That 5-1 ML on the pick makes him very appealing, as not only does he enter off two straight big performances, but the race flow will really suit his running style too, and if the chalk is in fact off-form, then the 1 becomes that much tougher, so play him aggressively to win and place, and in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well, since he really looks like he's getting all the best of it here, yet won't have to run a whole heck of a lot faster to beat these.

Brian W. Spencer's Daily Picks

Charles Town - Race #2
Picks Notes
#9 No More Martinis Showed a bit of life when last seen at Penn in December, and he'll need every bit of that sort of effort to score with this softer bunch.
#8 U. S. Millenium Proved that he stacked up well with the local company last time out, and he should get another good go of things near the top.
#1 Burren Rocks Doesn't meet a field of world beaters, even for this level so he won't have to be a star to make an impact at first asking in this soft spot. Rail draw is no bargain.
Race Summary No More Martinis can score here if he's able to run back to something like that last one at Penn, and this easier spot might make the difference.

Charles Town - Race #6
Picks Notes
#5 Cayenne Creek Might get a decent go behind the splits, as the chalk probably has a little bit of company near the top, so this guy might be able to settle and spy before trying to outkick that one.
#3 Rush to the Castle No doubt he's the one to beat off a couple of pretty easy wins in those last two trips to post, but he's now running off a bit of a break when he was in really good form prior to that. Underlaid number to find out if he holds that form?
#9 Potential Grizzly Tactical type should be able to find a good spot near the top with these, and he brings a bullet work with him to this return run.
Race Summary Cayenne Creek should trip out behind a couple of horses who might be able to hassle the likely favorite, Rush to the Castle. That guy is the most likely winner here, but he seems a bit more vulnerable this time around.

Charles Town - Race #7
Picks Notes
#3 Fiber and Emily Really found some of his best form before the break, and he should be quick enough to keep in touch with the chalk drawn inside of him.
#2 Dr. Feelgood The one to beat with some dangerous early pace, and he's likely to take them as far as he can as fast as he can in hopes of running them off their feet.
#8 Irish Roar Honest type tends to run his race and turned in a really nice score in his first trip over the local footing. Not impossible if the speed comes back.
Race Summary Fiber and Emily is worth a small look to try to beat Dr. Feelgood, as 'Emily can track the speed in the early going and will be a significantly better price than 'Feelgood.

Jerry Shottenkirk's Daily Picks

Remington Park - Race #3
Picks Notes
#10 Chasing Cars Sunland invader was 2nd but but disqualified last out, which came against winners; faces maiden claimers for the 1st time and can be strong on the outside.
#7 The Corona Cowboy Stretches out to 550 and distance doesn't seem to be a probably; has been competitive and looks that way again.
#6 Joe Bangles Woke up with a solid 3rd last out going 440; gets a little more distance, which shouldn't hurt.
Race Summary Chasing Cars has been out only twice, stretches out to 550 and a break should put him out front.

Remington Park - Race #5
Picks Notes
#9 Lajollas Dirty Harry Drops out of trials and maiden special races into maiden claiming and that should move him up; keeps Flores, which is a good sign.
#10 Phondler Has been close in all three starts and can show good speed from the outside; big player.
#2 Isthechickendun Comes off her best effort, a 3rd vs. maidens; the class drop could make her tough here.
Race Summary Lajollas Dirty Harry has been in some strong races and should find this class drop to his liking.

Remington Park - Race #6
Picks Notes
#9 Assured to Be Capo Was in a very tough maiden races in her debut and should score on the class drop.
#2 Peves Iba Dream Girl Another class dropper and can be much closer today; 3rd start can produce good results tonight.
#3 Chicks Tale All Was well played but offered up a 7th-place finish in her debut; likely to improve for this price.
Race Summary Assured to Be Capo ran 5th behind speedy Expressum in her only start and is likely to show a great deal of improvement.

# 8 U. S. MILLENNIUM 2/1

# 9 NO MORE MARTINIS 6/1

# 7 UNBELIEVABLE STORY 10/1

U. S. MILLENNIUM looks like the bet in here. Should be carefully examined - I like the figures from the last contest. Looks decent for the conditions of this competition today, showing solid numbers in dirt sprint races recently. NO MORE MARTINIS - Last time out, this gelding faced a much tougher field.

RECOMMENDED CHOICES
The Walker Group Picks

# 4 DYAUB 10/1

# 9 ASSURED TO BE CAPO 3/1

# 2 PEVES IBA DREAM GIRL 5/1

DYAUB has a very good shot to take this race especially at 10/1. Will more than likely be one of the early speedsters of the pack going into the midpoint of the race. Appears to have a quite good class edge based on the recent company kept. She should have a strong outing versus this less demanding group. ASSURED TO BE CAPO - She has earned solid figs under today's conditions and should fare well against this group of horses in this race. She has been racing very well lately while recording strong Speed Figures. PEVES IBA DREAM GIRL - Could beat this group given the 56 Equibase Speed Figure recorded in her last outing. Is tough not to look at given the company run in as of late.

Gulfstream Park - Race #8 - Post: 4:21pm - Claiming - 8.0 furlongs on the Turf. Purse: $25,000 Class Rating: 91

Rating: Golden DollarGolden DollarGolden DollarGolden Dollar

#10 I AM MAGICAL (GB) (ML=7/2)
#1 I'LL DO IT MY WAY (ML=5/1)


I AM MAGICAL (GB) - I expect a lot from this horse. Her speed ratings under similar conditions are tops in this field. When I handicap a turf race, I think sometimes class ratings are more important than speed figs. This mount has the highest average class in the entire group. In the last race, finished fifth in the slop at Gulfstream Park. Expect better right here. I'LL DO IT MY WAY - The recent speed rating of 85 is the highest last race rating in the bunch. Ran a speedy time for the last quarter on April 2nd at Gulfstream Park. Anything close in this event should get the job done. 57-81-85 are last 3 speed figs. Improving each time out is something she should do again in this field.

Vulnerable Contenders: #14 LADY FIORELLA (ML=5/2), #15 BEAST OF WILDWOOD (ML=4/1), #5 TRIESTE (BRZ) (ML=9/2),

LADY FIORELLA - Hard to recommend any animal with lessening speed ratings of 76/66/54. Could be tough for this horse to beat this group off of that last speed figure. Doubtful to improve enough to run a figure close enough to today's class figure, so put her on the questionable challengers list. BEAST OF WILDWOOD - This youngster isn't going to beat the veterans today, maybe another time. Finished third in her most recent race with a run-of-the-mill speed rating. When I look at today's class rating, it would take an improved performance to win after that in this bunch. TRIESTE (BRZ) - If you keep playing these kind of 'bridesmaid' types, you're going to be disillusioned regularly.

Top HatGUEST COMMENTARY: Hal - I AM MAGICAL (GB) - Recording a speed figure of 92, two races back, which is better than today's class rating, this mount is ready to claim her spot in the winner's circle.

#10 I AM MAGICAL (GB) is going to be the play if we are getting 7/5 or better

Golden Gate Fields - Race #5 - Post: 2:52pm - Maiden Claiming - 6.0 furlongs on the Dirt. Purse: $10,500 Class Rating: 81

Rating: Golden DollarGolden DollarGolden Dollar

#8 ICE OR FIRE (ML=9/2)
#1 DARKHAWK (ML=5/1)
#5 BILLTOWN BANNER (ML=8/1)


ICE OR FIRE - Bautista has this colt placed in the right event. DARKHAWK - I like to see fast drills. This gelding's last one was very good. Second fastest of the day. Is ranked number one in (EPS) earnings per start. A dominant effort right here in this race will add to the lifetime bankroll. The addition of blinks usually means that a trainer wants a pony to show more speed or to keep his attention focused. BILLTOWN BANNER - The way this race sets up this gelding will be in perfect striking position when they turn for home.

Vulnerable Contenders: #11 MUSKOKA (ML=3/1), #10 SILVER FURY (ML=7/2), #6 CYBER (ML=8/1),

MUSKOKA - 3/1 is not pegged at the proper price for any animal in a sprint of 6 furlongs that hasn't hit the board in a sprint event of late. SILVER FURY - Today's race is 6 furlongs. Hasn't finished in the money in a sprint contest in the last couple of months. Not the best of omens. Difficult to put your dough on the win end of any racer that finishes second and third as often as this entrant does. CYBER - He showed not much at all in the last clash. Can't wager on this runner in today's sprint of 6 furlongs. Hasn't even hit the board in a sprint affair lately. This steed ran a mediocre speed rating in the last race. He shouldn't show signs of improvement and will likely suffer defeat in today's event running that rating.

Bet on #8 ICE OR FIRE to win if we can get at least 3/1 odds

    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!
