Gulfstream Park kicks off this weekends horse racing with its 12 race Saturday card, commencing at 12:00 Noon in Hallandale Beach, Florida. One stakes race is planned – race 11. It’s the Royal Delta Stakes, 1 mile on the dirt for fillies and mares 4 year-olds and up.
The $150,000 purse is pursued by 7 listed starters, with Tequilita listed as the M/L favorite at 8:5. The post time is approx. 5:12 PM.
The Rainbow 6 jackpot was hit on Friday, to the tune of $227,506, amid a wild surprise in the last race, as Off the Mark (43:1) went gate to wire and beseted the favorite Vaughan by 5-3/4 lengths to pull the upset.
That result made for just a single winner on the Rainbow 6 wager, so it took down the entire carryover plus the pool after takeout ! Just two favorites won the last 6 races Friday.
The Late Pick 4 paid $6,833, and the Late Pick 5 paid a kingly sum of $23,623.
So the Rainbow sequence starts anew today with $0 carryover, while the Super Hi-5 carryover will be $2,254.
