Gulfstream is setting a guaranteed gross pool of $700,000 Friday if the wagering + carryover are less than that.
Thursday’s racing was one for the record-books.
First, no post time favorites won their races. That is rare. No favorite finished better than third (Show). Next, huge payouts were made on the Pick 5 and Rainbow 6. The early and late Pick-5 bets paid $25,514 and $40,506 respectively. No favorites winning was the cause of that. The high-odds winner at 14.7:1 in race 5 included BOTH the early and late Pick 5 bets. Our data shows about 9 winners on the early Pick 5 and three winners on the late Pick 5. Fifty-One horses raced in the Rainbow 6.
The Rainbow 6 paid $30,274.74 to three lucky patrons. The winning program numbers were: 8-5-3-5-10-2.
Betting on the Rainbow 6 was $162,234, and all sources track handle was $3.93 million Thursday. Stay tuned for some potentially crazy racing action again Friday.
