GP Saturday: 11 Races, Two Carryovers

HRFLA  Staff Report

Gulfstream Park has an 11-race card on Saturday, with first post at 12 :00 p.m., and carryovers on the Super Hi-5 and Rainbow 6.

There are no stakes races on the program.

As of 10:15 a.m., skies are clear at Gulfstream in Hallandale Beach, Fla.  The Weather Channel forecast is for just a 25 percent chance of rain during racing hours.

That indicates that all six of the eleven scheduled for turf races will stay on that surface.

We will update this story when track conditions and scratches are available.

The first race has a carryover of $3,486 on the Super Hi-5, a $1 minimum bet that requires picking the first five finishers in order-with no consolation payoffs such as four-of-five.

The first race has a $12,500 claiming price and a $22,000 purse.

It is  1 1/16 miles on turf for 4-YO and up that have not won a race since Feb. 15, 2020.

The Rainbow 6 is on races six to eleven, with the sequence scheduled to start at 2:34 p.m.  It is a 20-cents per combination-only bet.

Gulfstream has guaranteed that the pool on the Rainbow  6  will be at least  $200,000 if there is just one ticket with all six winning horses.  If b there are multiple winning tickets Gulfstream will take out 20 percent of the  day’s  Rainbow 6 bet and then divide 56 percent among winners and add 24 percent to the carryover.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Gulfstream remains closed to spectators–except for the Silks simulcast room on the ground floor which is by invitation only.
