Gulfstream Park will host a 10-race card Friday with a first post of 12:35 PM ET. The highs are expected near 77 this afternoon under clear skies. Nine of 10 horses prefer the warmer Gulfstream climate this time of year!
In Thursday’s action, 85 starters ran for $361,000 in purse money under clear/fast track conditions.
Four favorites entered the winners circle. In the 8th race, Our Pride at 19:1, beat Juniper Avenue (12:1), by 1-1/4 to win the one-mile dirt contest. The favorite, St. Michael, finished 4th.
That win led to some nice payouts for the Pick 4, 5 and Rainbow 6, as race 7 was including in those late races.
Pick-4 paid $1,418.30
Pick-5 paid $3,134.70
Rainbow 6 paid $6,886, leading to a carryover of $201,965 for today; the sole carryover.
