North American race fans can see in the weekend with no fewer than nine meetings scheduled for Friday as the action takes place across the United States and Canada.
Laurel Park will be our first port of call, with eight races scheduled at the Maryland track from 17:40-21:57, with the opener and the 19:11 both benefiting from Betfred’s ‘Extra Place’ promotion.
The latter of those races – a 1m Allowance for three-year-olds and above – looks set to be a competitive affair, although Dream Big Dreams (7/4) may prove a class above as he drops in grade for what will be his first run since October.
Canada’s sole offering of the day will be an eight-race card from Woodbine between 18:00-21:43 and again Betfred will provide their ‘Extra Place’ offer for the opener.
Saratoga’s 10-race offering starts hot on the heels of the action at Woodbine, as they go to post at the New York track from 18:05-23:13, with the 19:15 and 19:49 both seeing Betfred’s ‘Extra Place’ promotion come into play.

Ellis Park’s eight-race card – from 18:50-22:10 – will also benefit from the ‘Extra Place’ promotion, with the offer being available for the races at 19:46, 20:42 and 21:40.
That 21:40 could be won by Uninvited Guest (SP), who was a runner-up on his most recent outing over this C&D. Britain’s Kitten (SP), Verstappen (SP) and Watch The Music (SP) are also expected to challenge.
Gulfstream’s nine-race card will get underway at 19:55 and conclude at 00:22, with the 20:28, 21:02, 21:38 and 23:18 all benefiting from Betfred’s ‘Extra Place’ offer.
The first of Santa Rosa’s eight races is due off at 22:15, with the finale coming at 01:45, while there are also eight races scheduled at Evangeline Downs between 23:30-02:40.
Night owls will be able to take in the penultimate card of the day, with the action at Del Mar getting underway at 00:00 and concluding with the eighth race at 03:27, while Fairmount Park will host seven races from 01:30-04:18.
