Its Preakness Stakes day at Pimlico with the card at the Maryland track providing the main event as part of a stacked Saturday which features 10 meetings in total.

The action gets underway at Pimlico at 15:30 with a bumper crop of 14 races to enjoy, including five Grade contests, while Betfred are offering a free bet if your selection finishes second in the 17:51 Allowance.

At 22:38 we have the Grade 2 Dinner Party Stakes, where Kuramata is 3/1 to continue his good form under Chad Brown following his move from England. He’s won twice since the switch Stateside and his biggest challenge is likely to come from stablemate Sacred Life (5/4).

The Preakness Stakes follows at 23:47 with Medina Spirit the 15/8 favourite to complete the second part of the Triple Crown having landed the Kentucky Derby earlier in the year.

Medina Spirit looks like the class runner in the field but stalemate Concert Tour (2/1) has shown in the past he can rub shoulders with the best having enjoyed two Grade victories previously. His failure to win the Arkansas Derby was a major disappointment but he could challenge his fellow Bob Baffert runner.

Away from Pimlico, Gulfstream have a 12-race card to enjoy between 17:20 and 23:34 with Betfred’s Free Bet if 2nd promotion on offer in the 21:23 when Weisser (SP) will look for another win at the Florida track.

Belmont Park’s 11-strong meeting is due off at 18:00, wrapping up at 23:22, with a free bet on offer if your selection finishes second in the 18:37, while there’s an extra place on the table in the 20:37.

Lone Star hold 10 races between 19:35 and 00:20, while Santa Anita also have 10 contests on their slate between 20:30 and 01:51. The 00:17 Maiden Claiming is part of the free bet if 2nd offer and features Elgofranco (SP), who has placed in eight of 14 starts.

Rounding off Saturday’s action are the cards at Louisiana Downs, Golden Gate Fields, Evangeline Downs, Charles Town and Prairie Meadows.
