There are nine race meetings in the US and Canada taking place on Thursday with a lot of opportunities available to Betfred punters.

Belmont Park, Belterra Park, Canterbury Park, Delaware Park, Evangeline Downs, Horseshoe Indianapolis, Lone Star, Penn National, and Woodbine are the host courses with a grand total of 77 races to look forward to.

The day’s action begins at Delaware Park where there are eight races taking place between 17:30-21:00 before the action swings over to Belterra Park for an eight-race schedule between 17:35-20:58.

The 18:04 Claiming ran over a mile is one of several races during the day where Betfred is offering its “Extra Place” promotion meaning, three places are being paid out instead of two.

One to keep an eye on will be four-time winner Ugly Duckling (SP) though Cappy Hour (SP) also merits consideration after finishing second in his latest outing.
