Gulfstream Park plans a 10-race card Friday, with first post of 1: 15 PM.
No stakes races are planned.
The Thursday racing action included 9 races, with just two favorites in the winners circle. The last 5 races were a bit interesting, in that two 12:1 odds and a 8:1 shot won, leading to a big Pick-5 and large Pick-6 payouts.
Late Pick 4 paid: $705.80
Late Pick 5 paid: $14,274.80
Rainbow 6 paid: $11,818 to 5 winners.
The carrovers Friday will be the Rainbow 6 at $132,996, and the Super Hi-5 at $1,486.
The Rainbow jackpot is high enough now for groups to go deep on the card we think.
Thursday’s pool was $100,261 on the Rainbow, where 50 starters left the gates.
The first two-year old raced Thursday, resulting in a dead heat for the win between Reiterate and Marva in the fourth race. It was a $65,000 4-1/2 furlong run on the dirt. Also, Gran Bonita Chica, the 4:5 odds favorite in race 2 did not finish her race, described by the track writers as “dropped back then eased up upper stretch and walked off.”
That’s what keeps horse racing interesting – not knowing what’s around the next turn.
Total track handle was $3.92 million, the first sub $4 million this meet thus far.
Thanks, and good luck !
