Gulfstream Park plans a 12:35 first post today, enters day 41 of the Spring-Summer meet. There is one stakes races listed. It’s the Soldier’s Dancer Stakes, in race 10 – a $100,000 Florida-bred 3 year-old on the turf course at 1-1/16 miles. One snag is the 60%+ chance of rain with thunderstorms during racing hours. That weather led to 3 off-turf races on Friday. That could change the complexion of the day. The co-favorites on this race are Galleon Mast and Jay’s Way, both at 2:1 ML odds. Plan on a 5:15 PM Post.
In Friday’s racing action, 59 starters ran 9 races, with four favorites entering the winners circle. With the rain and sloppy-sealed track after race 4, surprisingly no long-odds horse won. No horse won higher than 2.7:1, which watered down the payouts a lot.
Here are Friday’s late race payouts.
Late Pick 4 paid: $70.25
Late Pick 5 paid: $286.45
Rainbow 6 paid: $706.80 to about 166 winners.
The Rainbow 6 pool was $212,607.
The sole carryover is the Rainbow 6 (Pick 6) wager, at $2,146,645 to be run about 3:40 PM with race #7.
Good Luck, and stay dry!
