This is the start of the Summer meet at Gulfstream; termed the Royal Palm Meet with live racing Thursday through Sunday at the Hallandale Beach, Fla. track. This meet ends August 27th.
No stakes races are on the Thursday card. The 3rd through 8th races are the Rainbow 6 races, starting at approximately 1:38 PM.

The wagering was $5.91 million on this bet – and 3 winners were favorites. $5.91 million would buy 29.55 million combination bets at $0.20 each. To cover every combination for all 56 runners would cost you $115,200.
