Gulfstream Park will resume racing on Thursday with ten races and first post of 12:50 p.m.
This week, first post also will 12:50 p.m. on Friday and on Sunday. First post will be 12:35 p.m. on Saturday.
Thursday’s featured sixth race is a $43,000 allowance at one mile on turf for fillies and mares 3-years-old and up/
There is a $6,871 carryover on the Rainbow 6, on races five through ten.
On Saturday the Rainbow 6 was hit for $411,188 when there was just one ticket with the winners of all six races.
It was sold at Remington Park in Oklahoma City, Okla., for $2,160. It had 10,800 combinations at 20 cents–the only size allowed for Gulfstream’s Rainbow 6.
Gulfstream began a new Rainbow 6 pool on Sunday. Bettors put in $28,637. There were five tickets with all six winners, and each received $5,343.84. Gulfstream put $6,871 into a new carryover.
There is a Super Hi-5 carryover of $4,107.92 on the first Thursday race with seven or more starters. Barring scratches it would be on the first race.
Last Sunday, Gulfstream’s most recent race day, there were no winning tickets in the last two races on the Super Hi-5. The bet requires picking the first five finishers in correct order.
Thus the pool on the Super HI-5 carries over to first race on Thursday that has at least seven starters—the minimum needed for the bet.
Thursday’s first race is a $34,000 starter allowance at one mile on turf for three-year-olds and up. There are eight entrants, including one that is main track only.
If scratches reduce the field to six or fewer horses, the fourth race with eight entrants is the next possible race for the Super Hi-5.
The second and third races both have just six entrants.
In any case, the carryover and chance to study ahead (advisably on both the first and fourth races) should attract $30,000 or more in Super Hi-5 bets. When there is no carryover, the pool for the bet is usually between $1,000 and $2,000.
