There are ample options for wagering on Friday if you are a horse handicapper. That’s something you can always seem to depend on when it comes to sports betting. Horse racing is always available if you need something to bet on. Even when the racing is done in North America, there are cards overseas in the UK and Australia out there. South Africa also has a couple of tracks at BetOnline running overnight. The US has 11 races on the schedule on Friday, with Aqueduct Racetrack where you can find the biggest races being run. That said, there are no stakes races today. There are a bunch on Saturday, but nothing for over $300,000.
We’ll be taking a look at a couple of evening cards on Friday. TheSportsGeek has you covered at Remington Park tonight with three selections in Oklahoma. If you are looking for some more evening racing, Penn National Race Course and Charles Town. We’ll take a look at what Penn National is offering in Pennsylvania. Head below for our free Penn National Race Course picks for December 4, 2020.

Race 2 is for a $11,800 purse over 1 1/16 miles on the dirt. Security Breach and Vouch should be horses to appreciate in this event. Security Breach is looking for a hat-trick on Friday after wins on October 22 and November 20. He won over Creative Mineshaft by 1 length for a $10,300 purse in the October outing. Security Breach followed up to get a half length win over Itsknownasthebern for a $11,800 win.
Note that Security Breach has a win in three of his previous five events. It’s difficult to ignore him on Friday night. Security Breach should be able to run a strong race and come close at the wire. His biggest opposition is likely going to come from Vouch from the No. 4 post position. Vouch is 4 for 20 in his career, and is looking to get back to the winner’s circle for the first time since September 25, 2019. Vouch is winless in ten straight events. However, Vouch has finished in the top-3 in five of those outings.
Vouch is coming off a productive showing on November 11 for a $13,600 purse. He placed 2nd behind We B Jammin by 3 lengths. Vouch was 2nd throughout the race and was able to hold there and make a mild gain. This was after Vouch dropped classes after finishing 5th in a $18,100 appearance in October. This should be even easier for Vouch on Friday night. I’d side with the No. 4 horse to get this done.

Distance: 1 Mile 70 Yards
Race 4 is our next stop on Friday evening at Penn National Race Course. The event is worth $19,000 for a mile and 70 yards. Fed Fever and Blow the Whistle appear to be ready to strike in Race 4. Fed Fever has tasted success recently, with two wins in his previous three outings. He is 7 for 24 overall in his career.
Fed Fever won on August 26 over Veya in a $15,400 event, and on October 21 in his most recent appearance for a $13,600 win over Heart of a Warrior by 3 ¼ lengths. Sandwiched between those two efforts was a finish for 6th in a $19,900 event. After winning again down in class, Fed Fever moves back up to a $19,000 event on Friday.
Blow the Whistle is 17 for 45 in his career. Most of his wins have been from early 2018 to now. Since late 2018, Blow the Whistle is a winner in 12 of 18 races. In 16 of those 18 races, Blow the Whistle arrived in the top-3. His most recent win was on September 18 in a $18,100 assignment over Iywaan by 1 length. He moved up in class and didn’t have success for a $23,000 purse on October 13, finishing 5th, so it’s back down for Blow the Whistle. At this level, expect Blow the Whistle to come close to finding a win.

One more selection at Penn National Race Course for Friday night. Penny in Love and Kitten’s Peebles are horses to get to know in Race 7. Penny in Love and Kitten’s Peebles both have a good shot at winning the top prize out of this $11,800 purse. Penny in Love has been running well recently, having finished in the top-3 in five straight performances, which includes four in the top-2 and three wins.
In her most recent win, Penny in Love beat Shecor by 1 ¼ lengths for a $10,000 purse on October 14. Following that win, she finished 2nd in a $10,800 event, and 3rd for a $10,800 purse on November 25 most recently. Before those two outings, Penny in Love won three of four races, so if she can regain that form, then she is going to be fine on Friday night at Penn National. Kitten’s Peebles should provide plenty of resistance, though.
Kitten’s Peebles has been consistently going about her business recently. She has finished 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 2nd in her previous four performances. In her victory on September 16, Kitten’s Peebles won in a blowout by 7 ¼ lengths for a $11,800 purse. That prompted a class jump, and Kitten’s Peebles still ran well for $15,000 purses. She followed up to place 2nd behind Trixie’s Time by 2 ½ lengths for a $15,400 purse. In his most recent appearance, he was 5 lengths behind Makin’ Out in a $16,400 event. Down way down in class for Friday, this is a winnable event for Kitten’s Peebles.
