The footballing action is restricted to the Turkmenistan Premier League.
The Golden State Tour’s Legacy Classic moves into its second round in Arizona.
In Australia, 15 tracks hold races in the next 24 hours, while New Zealand joins the schedule with action from Hatrick, for the first time since the daily fixture round-up began. The only US action comes from Florida’s Palm Beach.
Racing comes from Japan’s Funabashi; from Visby, Eskilstuna and Jagersro in Sweden; from Will Rogers Downs and Fonner Park in the US, and from 13 tracks across Australia.
