Gulfstream plans an 11 race card today, with first post at 1:00 pm.
Today concludes the Spring racing meet which began April 4. Tomorrow will start the Summer meet – continuing through September 29. Gulfstream and Tampa Bay are required to run races on the last and first days of their fiscal years: June 30 – July 1st. See tampabaydowns.com/racing for their race schedules.
Gulfstream will require a mandatory payout on the Late Pick 4 (4:55 Post), Pick 5 (4:20 Post), and Rainbow 6 (3:45 Post) today, so look for some increased action there.
There one stakes race today: The Kodiak Island Stakes, 5-1/2 f on dirt in race 2. Positively Awesome is the M/L favorite at 8:5.
The Weather Channel forecasts a 15-35% chance of rain and thunderstorms during race hours, similar to yesterday when all races were taken off the turf.
109 starters ran 14 races Saturday, with 6 favorites winning their races. Take Command won the CarryBack Stakes at 9:1, while Stormy Embrace nailed the Princess Rooney Stakes as the favorite. Diamond Oops (7:1) won the Smile Sprint Stakes by 3/4 length over the favorite Jalen Journey.
The Rainbow 6 paid $1,118.76 Saturday to 42 bettors. The carryover for today is $32,340. The Super Hi-5 wager carryover is $3,037 and most likely will be available in race 1 with 10 entries listed. Good Luck and thanks for reading!
