Gulfstream West – Columbus Day Card; 1:15 PM Post

The Gulfstream Park West meet will run live racing on Monday, Oct. 8, the Columbus Day holiday.
First post will be 1:15 p.m. for the 10-race card at Calder in Miami Gardens.

Monday’s racing will feature 90 starters, and 5 turf races (#2,4,6,8,10), along with two dirt track two-year-old races (#5,7). In our post on Sunday, we did not expect much hoopla on the day’s wagering. We stand corrected. The 10 race card yielded two long shot winners in the Late Pick 5 and Pick 6 bets. The Rainbow 6 jackpot was hit for $48,707 and the Late Pick 5 paid $13,932. A 16:1, 13:1 and 12:1 winner in the sequence whittled down the winning ticket holders to just a single.

The Super Hi-5 wager does have a carryover today of $1,738 in race 1. There was just one race run Sunday off the turf (#1), and six scratches among the 10 races.

It will be the only Monday live race day at the GP West meet, which will run through Nov. 25.
The regular live schedule is Wednesday through Sunday at Gulfstream Park West.
