Six races (the odd numbered ones) are scheduled for turf.

Diaz, at 5-1, caught the 4-5 favorite Amigo in the final strides to win by a nose in Saturday’s tenth and featured race.
Megeve (8-1) finished third by 2 ¾ lengths in the nine-horse field in the one-mile turf race for three-year-olds and up.
It was an allowance with a $43,000 purse and a $16,000 optional claiming price. None of the first three finishers were in for a tag.
Diaz was ridden by Edgard Zayas and won in 1:35.06 on the course listed as firm. Tamara Levy trains Diaz, a four-year-old gelding, for IAB Stables.
The win was Diaz’s third in a row, all on turf at Gulfstream. The previous two victories were in races with lower claiming prices.
