A crowd we estimate at about 1,000 is on hand today at Calder for opening day of the Gulfstream Park West meet, run by Gulfstream Park.
Skies have been overcast with an occasional light drizzle. The fans have been content to sit outside on benches facing the track. Wagering, as expected, has been lower than the Gulfstream summer meet. Wagering on the 20 cent Pick 6 was just $6,889.
Raisedtobeawarrior, at 5-1, won the 5th race – the opening leg of the pick 6. “It’s a bigger crowd than I thought it would be, so far things have been okay,” said trainer Carlo Vaccarezza. Vaccarezza sent out Doctor J. Dub to win the fourth race.
