Saturday's US Horse Racing Predictions

We have three tips from the racing in the US. Check them out below.

18:45 Gulfstream Park Betting Tips

Or'Effice to win - 4/7 - BET NOW

You don't often see $725,000 purchases running in weak maiden special weight contests early on a Gulfstream Park card but that's the case for Or'Effice, who will surely get off the mark at the fifth time of asking for trainer Mark Hennig.

This expensive son of Medaglia d'Oro has improved for each outing on the track and followed a couple of fourths with an unlucky runner-up effort at Gulfstream in February.

Or'Effice bumped into a useful sort that day but showed up for a long way under Luis Saez and went down fighting over a slightly longer trip than he faces today.

It was much the same story last time when he was only beaten half a length by the Chad Brown-trained Candy Machine, who fought him off in the final 50 yards.

This is a much easier race and the reduced field should help Or'Effice, who may try to make all of the running.

21:37 Tampa Bay Downs Betting Tips

Sugar Fix to win - 5/2 - BET NOW

Michael Dini does well with the young horses in his barn and in Sugar Fix he has a good filly who is working her way up the grades. 

The three-year-old daughter of Treasure Beach got the hang of the racing game when losing her maiden tag at the fifth attempt in late January, closing well from off the pace to blitz nine rivals over a mile on turf.

She was incredibly unlucky to bump into dual subsequent winner Queens Embrace on her next start in a starter optional claimer and made amends despite facing another unexposed and highly regarded sort in Vaunt on her next outing. 

Sugar Fix bolted up that and passed Vaunt with one swift manoeuvre turning for home. The fourth, Big Angel, has boosted the form by winning since.

Queens Embrace denied her again last time but this looks an easier race, she has drawn gate one and should have the perfect trip in behind the leaders.

22:25 Gulfstream Park Betting Tips

He Hate Me to win - 7/2 - BET NOW

Luis Saez gets on He Hate Me in the Big Drama Stakes (10.25) at Gulfstream Park and the duo can deny likely favourite Network Effect in what is sure to be a fascinating contest run over seven furlongs.

He Hate Me is a regular placer in black type and stakes races and deserves to get his head in front. You can't fault his attitude, it's just that he seems to be bumping into one or two too good on each occasion.

That was definitely the case last time when He Hate Me looked all over the winner of the Sir Shackleton Stakes over this course and distance but got picked up by the talented Vekoma in the straight.

That rival is set for a good season and a repeat effort from He Hate Me, who has the gatespeed to race prominently here, should prove good enough.
