Wednesday’s Gulfstream Racing; 1:15 PM Post Time

Racing resumes Wednesday at Gulfstream Park, with 11 races scheduled (7 turf) and a 1:15 PM EDT first post. With Daylight Saving time ending, GP’s post times will be later due to the increased light-time (good for handicappers if you are a late-riser). There are no stakes races planned today. Last post time will be about 6:20 PM. GP plans for this 1:15 PM first post for it’s Wed., Thurs., Friday race days the rest of this meet. We’ll update you if this changes.

In the carryover news, the sole wagering carryover Wednesday will be the Rainbow 6 wager, starting in race 6 at approx. 3:45 PM, with 53 entries listed on the card. The growing carryover is now $1,353,381 if a single winner exists for all 6 races bet to win. In Sunday’s action, 60 starters ran 13 races with just 4 favorites entering the winners circle. 

Sixty Eight bettors collected $4,125 each on the winning Rainbow wager. Just 2 favorites won in the last 6 races, and a 8:1 and 11:1 win in the 9th and 10th races made the carryover grow by $121,557 for today.

Bettors added $506,491 the Rainbow 6 pool Sunday, a whopper handle on that wager for a Sunday card.

The late Pick 4 paid $486 on the minimum 50 cent bet.
The late Pick 5 paid just $4,276, more than the Rainbow 6, showing us that a more conservative bet may be the Pick 5 as it pays a consolidation prize for 4 of 5 winners. That was $24.15 on Sunday.


Total handle was $11.56 million.
