Gulfstream Park has a 9-race card Wednesday. First post is at 12:10 PM.
Gulfstream is migrating to a 5 day race-week starting today. Post time is 12:10 P.M. Wednesday through Sunday. That complete story can be found here from the Gulfstream Park media office: https://tinyurl.com/526puscd
No stakes races are on the Wednesday card. The 4th through 9th races are the Rainbow 6 races, starting at approximately 1:35 PM. The carryover there is $135,464. The Super Hi-5 wager was not hit the last racing day, Sunday – in the last race, so that’ll carry forward $1,515 to today’s first race.
Three long-odds wins by 13:1, 48:1 and 20:1 horses were too much to handle for the bettors of the late races. For the lucky few, the Late Pick 4 paid $16,989 to 10 winners, the Late Pick 5 paid $98,909 to 3 winners and the Rainbow 6 paid on 5 of 6 $13,505.22 to 5 winners. The Pick 4 and Pick 5 wagers are attracting more money of late than the Rainbow 6. We think because of the lower takeout at 15% (vs. 20%) and the lower odds to hit the 4 or five horse wins. The Rainbow 6 has paid on 5 of 6 four of the past 8 racing days; a streak that we’ve not seen in our records at least back to 2015!
Total all-sources track handle was $7.30 million Sunday, along with a $465,000 purse size. We wish all our readers a safe and prosperous Holiday Season!
