Gulfstream Park West plans 8 races on its Friday card, with a chance of more off-turf races due to rains and soggy grass. First post will be 1:15 PM ET.
Thursday’s action saw the four turf races diverted to the dirt track, and 9 scratched horses on those races. Three two-year-old races for Friday (#5,6,8) will make handicapping difficult for the late wagers and the multi-race bets.
The late pick-4 and pick-5 have no carryovers, while the Rainbow 6 has a $7,685 carryover.
There were 9 winners on the Rainbow Thursday, with a $1,142 payoff. The daily pool and jackpot are so small now that we don’t expect much interest until they both grow.
Wednesday’s pool was just $13,675, with 2 winners tallied to earn $3,827 each.
Just 57 starters on Thursday didn’t seem to aid the payoffs; the late pick 5 and pick 4 paid $645 and $320 respectively.
