By HorseracingFLA Staff

Thursday, July 30 –Gulfstream Park will have nine races today with a first post time of 1:15 p.m.

There are no stakes races.  The featured seventh  race is a $75,000 optional claimer at one mile on turf for 3-year-old  fillies. The purse is $44,000. Miss  Margaret and Little Bit Lovely are  likely favorites in the  nine-horse field.

Miss Margaret’s record includes a second place  finish and a  third place finish in one mile turf  stakes at Gulfstream this year. Jesus Rios will ride  for  trainer Milt Wolfson.

Little Bit Lovely  is  coming  off  a  gate-to-wire  win, by 5 3/4 lengths, in a $50,000 claimer at one mile on  Gulfstream’s turf on June 26.  She  won in  a  nine-horse field  that included older horses.

Past performances indicate that Little Bit  Lovely  could be  the controlling speed again  today. Tyler Gaffalione has the return  ride for trainer Ralph Nicks.

The field  also has Afleet Mary and  Susie Bee,  who have both hit the board in one mile turf claiming races  at Gulfstream this  year.

* There is a $65,979 carryover on the Rainbow 6 on today’s last six races. The  sequence is on  the fourth through ninth races, starting  on the fourth with scheduled post of 2:54  p.m.
