HorseracingFLA Staff Report
Gulfstream Park and Tampa Bay Downs both have nine-race cards.
First posts are 12:43 p.m. at Tampa Bay and 12:55 p.m. at Gulfstream. Conditions are fast and firm at each track. We will have coverage of both tracks on our blog.
*At Gulfstream, six races are scheduled for turf. According to the Weather Channel, there is a 20 percent chance of rain in and around Hallandale Beach where Gulfstream is located.
There is a $27,776 carryover on the Rainbow 6 on the fourth through ninth races.
The feature eighth race is a $25,000 allowance/optional claimer at five furlongs on turf for 3-year-olds and up. The purse is $43,000 and there are 12 entrants.
*At Tampa Bay, four races are scheduled for turf. According to the Weather Channel, there is a zero percent chance of rain in and around Oldsmar where Tampa Bay is located.
On the fourth race, there will be a Super High-Five carryover of $1,613.
In Sunday’s ninth and final race, no Super High-Five tickets had all five finishers in correct order. There are no consolation payoffs on the rolling Super High-Five. Thus, the entire pool has rolled over to today.
Tampa Bay Downs offers the bet only on races with seven or more starters. Partly due to scratches, there will be six or fewer starters in each of the first three races.
Scheduled post for the fourth race is 2:17 p.m. It is a $16,000 maiden claimer at 1 1/16 miles on turf for 3-year-olds. The purse is $14,000 and there are 10 entrants.
