Gulfstream Park has an 11-race card Saturday. First post is at 12:25 PM.
No stakes races will be run. Seven races are slated for the all-weather Tapeta track and 4 for the dirt track. Hurricane Nicole did not affect the track as that storm came ashore in Vero Beach, Fla., 130 miles North of Hallandale Beach.
The sole carryover is the Rainbow 6 wager, starting in race 6 at approximately 3:01 PM. The carryover there is $21,024. That bet paid $5,952.96 Friday to 4 winners.
Just one favorite won in the Rainbow races and three on the entire days card. It stood out that the favorites finished 2nd in 4 of the 6 rainbow 6 races, while the outlier was in Race 8 with Lovelorn Lady (8:1) beating Crystal Coast (23:1) by a neck. Tiz Enough came in 4th as the 2:1 favorite.
To have just 2 bettors hit this wager is kind of odd. A three horse wager in each of the 6 races would cost $194.40, while a four horse wager was $819.20. The Late Pick 4 and Pick 5 paid $1,835 and $4,099 respectively.
Forty-eight horses ran in the Rainbow 6.
Total all-sources track handle was $3.46 million Friday.
Friday’s purse size was $303,000 under cloudy and fast track conditions.
