GP West Off the Turf on Saturday


 Following overnight rain, the Gulfstream Park  West  meet has moved all five of Saturday’s scheduled-for-turf races to the dirt track, which is listed as Fast.

Those races are the first, third, fifth, seventh and tenth.

First post is 12:00 p.m. for the ten-race card, which is run at Calder.

The Rainbow 6 has a $143,323 carryover. The 20 cents per combination-only bet is on races five to ten with the sequence scheduled to start at 2:16 p.m.

Gulfstream is guaranteeing that the Rainbow 6 will have a jackpot pool of at least $250,000 if there is just one ticket with  all six winning horses.

Bodexpress and Identifier head the field for the feature ninth race. It is 1 1/16 miles on dirt for 3-YO and up–an optional claiming race ($62,500) with a $44,000 purse. Both have hit the board in graded stakes.

Starting later this morning, we will have track conditions and scratches–followed by coverage during the afternoon. Those reports will be mostly on our blog, which may be accessed on the menu bar at the top  of the home page of this Web site
