HRFLA Staff Report
Gulfstream Park will resume racing on Thursday with a nine-race card and first post of 12:00 a.m.
The dirt is listed as Fast and the turf is listed as Firm.
There ill be a new pool in the Rainbow 6, following Sunday’s mandatory payout in which the 73 tickets with all six winners each received $61,593 on the 20 cents per combination-only bet.
The Thursday Rainbow 6 is on races four to nine with the sequence scheduled to start at 1:30 p.m.
Gulfstream has guaranteed that the Rainbow 6 pool will be at least $100,000 if there is just one ticket with all six winners.
If there are multiple winning tickets, the pool will consist of 80 percent of the Rainbow6 bet. Following a 20 percent takeout, Gulfstream will divide 56 percent of the bet among winning tickets and put 24 percent into a new carryover.
Skies are clear at and around Gulfstream in Hallandale Beach, Fla., and the Weather Channel forecast is for just a 15 percent chance of showers during racing hours.

There are thirteen entrants. A maximum of ten horses will be able to start.
