On Friday, Gulfstream evinced a very interesting card, where just two favorites won, and a super long shot 83:1 resulted in whale payouts late in the day.
Bettors made for a $6.45 million handle day from all-sources, with 83 starters leaving the gate.
The late Pick 4 paid $12,574, while the late Pick 5 paid $103,600 ! As we’ve warned, the two-year-old races are tough customers to handicap, as Marcelino won the last race at 83:1 odds, it’s first career win in the 5 furlongs on the turf. The Rainbow 6 could not handle that, as just 5 of 6 pocketed $472.52 on that wager.
The sole carryover Saturday will be $307,117 on the Rainbow 6 jackpot, starting in race # 6 at about 2:30 PM post time.
