Wednesday Racing Preview  

Gulfstream Park and Tampa Bay Downs will resume racing on Wednesday afternoon, with nine-race cards.

At  Tampa Bay,  first  post is 12:45  p.m. At Gulfstream, first post is 12:55 p.m.

Conditions are fast and firm at both tracks.

We will have coverage during   the afterrnoon on our  blog,  which can be accessed in the menu bar at the top of this Web site’s home page.

In its third race, Tampa Bay will have an overnight carryover of $4,043 on the Super High 5.

That bet is $1 minimum and requires picking the first five finishers in correct order, with no consolation payoffs.  There were no tickets with the correct order in either of the last two  races on Sunday.

Tampa Bay offers the Super High 5 on all races with seven or more entrants. Scratches reduced the fields to less than seven for Wednesday’s  first and second races.

The third race has ten entrants. It is a  maiden claiming race at one mile and 40 yards on dirt for 3-year-olds and up. It  has a $10,400 purse and a claiming price of $8,000. 

Gulfstream will have a new pool in the Rainbow 6, on races four to nine.  Scheduled post for the fourth race is 2:34 p.m.20centRainbow07.13.16

On Sunday there was just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.  That ticket took down the jackpot of $90,632. The jackpot is a combination of the full carryover plus 80 percent of the day’s Rainbow 6 bets.

The Rainbow 6 is a 20-cent per combination-only bet. Multiple horses can be used in each race, thus setting up a ticket with multiple 20 cent combinations.  For example, a ticket with two horses in each race has 64 combinations and costs $12.80.
