Hitting The Track For All Day Sport’s Wagering Fest on Super Bowl Sunday

Sports and Bets — February 1, 2015 at 10:32 am by

Ah, Super Bowl Sunday. Our nation’s unofficial national holiday is also the nation’s biggest day for wagering.  Some estimates put the total dollar amount that Americans will wager at a staggering $4 billion. Of course, we’re in on the big game betting but we’d also like to push the issue by extending our gambling into an all day affair.  Laurel Park seems more than happy to oblige.

With football season over, Laurel changes their winter racing calendar to include Sunday racing.  Since the big game starts in the evening, the track starts that Sunday racing today.  Seems like the perfect time to hit the track, bet a few ponies, then root for your wagers after the NFL championship kicks off.

And now starting at noon on Sunday’s, for $25 bucks a head, Laurel offers a lovely Sunday brunch.   The food at both Maryland tracks is on point and believe it or not they’ve got some of the best crab cakes around.

So stuff your face and start gambling.  This is shaping up as a Sunday for the ages, babes.

Here’s some of our Laurel plays for Sunday February 1st.

Race 1- MDN 8k-  The #5 Dragon Attack is an obvious favorite coming off of his two consecutive runner up finishes at this bottom barrel maiden level.  He’s an obvious play against a rough looking bunch.  But if you want to gamble, maybe throw a few at #3 Memphis King.  He’s shipping in from Parks, his speed figure is kinda close, and he at least has a workout that looks halfway decent.  Bonus: The trainer of the #6 Echota is named Samuel Davis.  Hey, babes.


Race 2- 10K Claim- #1 Reyburn’s Gold is an ultra consistent hard-knocker who’s a known tough on the Pennsylvania circuit.  There are a couple of others who may take some money in this short field, and if Reyburn’s gets to 2-1 or 5-2, I think he’s worth a play even on those short odds. (And he’s coupled with what should be the lone speed in the field.) Love horses that have heart and this one fits that billing.

Race 5 – 5k Claim- #3 Seventy West is back at a level he can succeed at.  He’s got speed figs that can fit here, he’s won at the 7 furlong distance, and he may offer a bit of value.  ML is 7-2.

Race 6- 15k Claim- #7 Warliegh may be tough to beat, but the #1 No Its Not, is an intriguing option at a price.  Past races have fit the Beyer profile and the class relief might help.  Won off a freshening and he gets one here.  Big price, anything less than the ML of 8-1 though probably isn’t worth it.

Race 7 MSW-  #2 Streamsong is head and shoulders above this field. Price won’t warrant a win bet, but an exacta or a double may get some small value. out oft his probable winner.

Race 8- ALW- #6 Street Bullet will keep you cashing tickets on this day of favorites.  Again, not much value, but better than losing babes.  He’s the son of Kentucky Derby Winner, Street Sense.


Good Luck and have fun at the races.
