There is an action-packed schedule of racing on the cards in the USA and Canada on Friday, with no fewer than 11 meetings on the agenda.

Friday’s opening card comes from Delaware Park, where punters can look forward to eight races from 17:30 until 21:00.

Betfred’s “Extra Place” promotion is available in two contests at 19:09 and 21:46, and David Howard’s Algebraic (7/2) could be the one that gives Stroll Smokin (4/5) a run for his money in the second of those two races.
