Gulfstream Park has a 11-race card planned for Sunday’s race day.
The 6th through 11th races are the Rainbow 6 races, starting at approximately 2:37 PM. The carryover there is $341,056 after that wager paid out a smallish $430.18 Saturday to approximately 330 bettors.
On Saturday, the $100,000 Ladie’s Turf Sprint Stakes was won by One Identity (3:1) in race 7 by 1/2 length. The $125,000 purse Gulfstream Park Turf Sprint Stakes winner was Yes I Am Free (3.3:1), 1/2 length ahead of Carotari (1.4:1). Interestingly, five horses were scratched from this race, setting the field at just 5 runners. That’s a rarity for a stakes race.
Four favorites won on the day, including one in the last 6 races. No winner in the Rainbow 6 races as a betting favorite finished worse than SHOW in the 6 races. That led to meager payouts on the exotic bets.
The late Pick 4 and Pick 5 paid just $67.70 and $205.20 respectively. The best win we saw on the card Saturday was the Early Pick 5 that paid $41,835. Race 1 winner Adorian was a 42:1 shot in the $32,000 maiden claiming race on the turf. We estimate about 13 winners on that wager.
Total all-sources track handle was a whopping $15.02 million Saturday. Total purse on the day was $734,000.
