We will keep you posted if there are changes.

That race is a $40,000 maiden claimer for 2-YOs. It is five furlongs on turf with a $39,500 purse.
The Rainbow 6 has a carryover of $128,559. The 20 cents per combination-only bet is on races four to nine with the sequence scheduled to start at 1:30 p.m.
Gulfstream is guaranteeing that the Thursday jackpot/carryover pool will be at least $250,000 if there is just one ticket with all six winners. The jackpot consists of the entire carryover plus 80 percent of the day’s Rainbow 6 bets.
If there is not a single ticket with six winners, Gulfstream will take out 20 percent of the day’s Rainbow 6 bet. It will then divide 56 percent among tickets with the most winners and add 24 percent to the carryover.
