Gulfstream Park has a pair of $100,000 stakes races on its Saturday card, and a $50,000 guarantee on its new Rainbow 6 pool.
The stakes are the Miami Mile (Grade 3) on turf for 3-year-olds and up and the Powder Break at one mile on turf for fillies and mares 3-years-old and up. Those races are the fifth and tenth.
First post is 1:15 p.m. for the 11-race card.
Gulfstream has a $50,000 guarantee on its new Rainbow 6 pool, on races six to eleven. There is no carryover because on both Thursday and Friday there was just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.
The Jackpot payoffs on the 20-cent only bet were $180,853 on Thursday, with a seven-day carryover, and $24,208 on Friday.
Tampa Bay Downs has nine Saturday races, with first post of 12:50 p.m.
One betting attraction is a $14,859 carryover on the Pick 5, on races five through nine. It is a 50-cent minimum bet.
