Gulfstream Park West will have an 8 race card on Thursday, with a first post time of 1:15 PM. It will be the 11th day of the G.P. West meet, with about 30 race days to go.
62 entries are listed as of Thursday morning, with 49 of them running in the last 6 races – Rainbow 6 will be races 3-8 starting at 2:19 PM, and the Pick 5 with a 2:51 PM post in race 4.
The odds were very low on the winners Wednesday, resulting in measly payouts on the late wagers. The highest odds horse was 5.7:1 in the 7th race, which also was the high odds for the 8 races.
The late Pick 5 paid $203.75, while the late Pick 4 paid $77.80. Our closely followed Rainbow 6 paid $194.04. Any time the Rainbow 6 pays less than the Pick 5, you know it was not a good payday at the track.
The Rainbow carryover is $19,350, not growing much in this meet thus far, as the jackpot has been hit three times.
More 2 year-old races are hitting the track is one reason. Five of those races were run Wednesday, and two are on the Thursday card (races 1,2).
