Gulfstream Park will run 10 races today, with a first post time of 12:30 PM.
With few exeptions, the Championship meet will race 5 days a week (Wednesday through Sunday) until the meet ends in early April. One turf race is planned in race 9; the rest will be on the dirt or Tapeta all-weather surface.
In Wednesday’s racing action, 49 starters competed in the last 6 races (Rainbow-6), and 42 winners of that wager each collected $1,451.06. The Rainbow 6 carryover today sits at $142,834 as it enters day 6 of this wager’s last jackpot payout on November 20th. Track handle was $5.17 million, a robust number for a weekday. We’ll see how that shakes out as this Championship meet continues.
Race 5 kicks off the Rainbow 6 sequence, slated to start at approximately 2:28 PM.
Starting this meet, Gulfstream’s horses now race on three surfaces: Dirt, Turf, and Tapeta; the artificial ALL WEATHER TRACK (AWT). Races 8 and 9 today will run on the AWT.
