Gulfstream Park plans 8 horse races Wednesday.
First post time is 12:30 P.M.
Last post will be approximately 4:13 PM.
There are no stakes races on the card.
A small under 5% or so chance of precipitation during racing hours.
Race 3 starts the Rainbow 6 near a 1:33 PM post time.
In Sunday’s racing action, 885 winners collected on the Rainbow 6 wager earning $248.10 each. Five of six favorites won their races. With the carryover here near $1 million, Gulfstream could step in and declare a mandatory payout day soon. We don’t think that will happen. Why? The Fountain of Youth is approaching March 5th, just 8 racing days from today. It makes more business sense to let the jackpot grow until then, because a mandatory payout now would set the carryover back to zero, and there is not enough time to build up before the big Fountain of Youth Saturday; (perhaps a $30-$35 million handle day). Let it ride we say.
So the carryover Wednesday is $935,711. Gulfstream has made a guarantee of a $1.25 million gross (before takeout) pool to a single winner if the gross betting pool does not reach that amount.
All sources track handle was $10.76 million Sunday.
