Gulfstream Back on Turf for Thursday Card


Gulfstream Park is back on the turf on Thursday with the course listed as firm and the dirt track listed as fast.

First post is 2:00 p.m. for the nine-race card.

The second, fourth, sixth and ninth races are scheduled for the turf.

There are no stakes races on the card.

The Rainbow 6 has a carryover of $120,812.  It is on races four to nine, with the sequence scheduled to start at 3:30 p.m.

Gulfstream has not had live racing since Sunday, when wet conditions forced it to  move all five scheduled for turf races to the dirt.

Last Friday, Gulfstream moved all five scheduled-for-turf races to dirt and last Saturday it moved four of its five scheduled-for-turf races to dirt.

Sunday was the 44th day of Gulfstream’s summer meet.  Through that day, it has moved 65 of its 211 scheduled-for-turf races to dirt due to rain and wet conditions.

At its 52-day summer meet in 2017, Gulfstream moved 47 of 279 races from turf to dirt.

At its 57-day summer meet in 2016, Gulfstream had 296 scheduled-for-turf races and moved only six to dirt.
