Gulfstream Saturday Preview

HorseracingFLA Staff Report

The dirt track is listed as fast and the turf course is listed as firm for Saturday’s 12-race card at Gulfstream Park.

First post is 12:35 p.m.

The Rainbow 6 carryover is $60,224, and is on races seven to twelve.

There will be a Super Hi-5 carryover of $1,256.84 on the first race.

That bet requires picking the first five finishers in a race in correct order. There are no consolation payoffs, such as four of five places.

There were no winning Super Hi-5 tickets in Friday’s tenth and final race.  Thus the bet rolls over to Saturday’s first race.

Because of the circumstances of an overnight carryover and a Saturday, $30,000 or more could be bet on the Rainbow 6 is the first race.

It is a $10,000 claiming race at 7 ½ furlongs on turf for fillies and mares three-years-old and up. There are eight entrants.

Gulfstream has the Super Hi 5 on each race with seven or more starters.

There are no stakes races on the Saturday card.  We will have coverage during the afternoon on our blog.

Gulfstream will have eleven races on Sunday, again with no stakes races.  First post is 12:50 p.m.

Friday Results

The colt Sweetontheladies took an early lead and went on to beat the late-running Chatiment by 3 ½ lengths in Friday’s second and feature race at Gulfstream Park.

With Marco Meneses riding, Sweetontheladies ran six furlongs in 1:10.42 in the six-furlong allowance/optional claiming race for two-year-olds.

The race was on the track listed as fast, and the time was good for a two-year-old.  Sweetontheladies earned a 91 Equibase speed figure—also good for a two-year-old.

Henry Collazo trains Sweetontheladies, who has won both of his starts.  On July 2, he won  a five-furlong maiden special weight  race at Gulfstream.

Sweetontheladies is a Florida-bred son of Twirling Candy.

He is owned by Four Horsemen Racing Stable and Lady Lindsay Racing, two long-time clients of Collazo.

The win by Sweetontheladies was Collazo’s seventh in  seventeen starts in the Gulfstream summer meet.

The purse for Friday’s race was $43,000 and the optional claiming price was $75,000.

The field was reduced to four following the morning scratch of Francesco Appeal.

All four starters had won maiden races at Gulfstream.

Sweetontheladies was third choice in the betting at 3-1, behind Chatiment who was 5-2.

Inkspired, the 1-2 favorite, tracked Sweetontheladies through  the first half mile.  But Inkspired faded in the stretch and finished third, 2  ¾ lengths behind Chatiment.

It was another 12 lengths back to Thanks God, the only entrant in for the tag.  He was not  claimed.
