HRFLA Staff Report
Noting that weather conditions are uncertain this weekend because of Hurricane Isaias (map on home page), Gulfstream Park has rescheduled a mandatory payout on its Rainbow 6 to Sunday Aug. 9.
That payout had been scheduled for this Sunday Aug. 2.
As of 2:00 p.m. Friday, Hurricane Isaias is moving northwest toward the Bahamas. Forecasters expect that on Saturday and Sunday it will have a wind and rain impact on southeast Florida, including Hallandale Beach where Gulfstream Park is located.
Forecasters expect that the storm could make landfall in the Carolinas, but not in Florida.
Skies are clear at Gulfstream on Friday afternoon and the track is proceeding with its ten-race card with conditions listed as Fast and Firm.
*Gulfstream has an 11-race card scheduled for Saturday, with first post at 12:00 p.m.
The co-features are the $100,000 Dr. Fager at six furlongs on dirt for 2-YO males and the $100,000 Desert Vixen at six furlongs on dirt for 2-Yo fillies. Those are the first two races in this year’s Florida Sire Stakes series.
*On Sunday, Gulfstream has scheduled a ten-race card with first post of 12:00 p.m.
If Gulfstream makes any changes in these schedules, we will report on them.
