HorseracingFLA Staff Report
Gulfstream Park has a 12-race card on Saturday with first post at 12:45 p.m.
The feature 11th race is an allowance, with a $44,000 purse, at 7 ½ furlongs on turf for three-year-olds and up.
Another attraction is the tenth race—a $55,000 maiden special weight at six furlongs on dirt for two-year-olds.
The dirt track is listed as fast and the turf is listed as firm. Six races (the odd-numbered ones) are scheduled for turf.
The Weather Channel forecast is for a 20 percent chance of rain early in the afternoon and 40 percent chance of thunderstorms late in the afternoon in Hallandale Beach where Gulfstream is located.
Gulfstream has a Rainbow 6 carryover of $157,221.30 on Saturday.
The Rainbow 6 is on races seven through twelve. It is a 20-cent only per combination bet. Multiple horses can be used in each race, thus creating multiple combinations.
In addition, Gulfstream has a carryover of $2,282.03 on the Super Hi-5 in the first race. That carryover is the result of there being no tickets with the first five finishers in correct order in Friday’s tenth and final race. The Super Hi-5 is a $1 minimum bet.
Curlin’s Approval rolled to a five-length win over Delta Girl in Friday’s ninth and feature race, a $43,000 allowance at 6 ½ furlongs on dirt for fillies and mares three-year-olds and up.
Emisael Jaramillo rode the three-year-old Curlin’s Approval who won in 1:16.57 on the track listed as fast.
The win was the second in three starts for Curlin’s Approval, a Kentucky-bred daughter of Curlin.
She won her debut at six furlongs at Gulfstream on June 5. She finished fifth in the Azalea Stakes at Gulfstream on July 2.
Marty Wolfson trains Curlin’s Approval for breeder/owner Happy Alter.
