Gulfstream Park has an 11-race card Saturday, May 6th.
First post is at 12:50 PM, and last post is planned near 5:50 PM. The 11th race will feature the English Channel Stakes, a non-graded stakes for 3 year-olds on the turf at 1 mile. Boppy O. is the morning line favorite at 8:5 in the 9-horse field. The 5:50 PM last post at Gulfstream will give you approximately 1 hour before the Kentucky Derby post at 6:57 PM ET.
As reported here on HorseRacingFLA.com, our editor Jim Freer passed away on March 17th. His handicapping on Gulfstream and the Kentucky Derby will be sorely missed.
The 6th through 11th races are the Rainbow 6 races, starting at approximately 3:20 PM. There’s a $321,102 Rainbow 6 carryover on the day.
In Friday’s racing action, 287 winners of the Rainbow 6 collected $78.54 each on the 20-cent bet. Five favorites won on the day, 3 in the last 6 races. Just forty horses competed in the Rainbow 6 races.
The Rainbow 6 program winners were: 6/7-2-3-2-6/7-3. The betting pool, like Thursday’s, was down to $3.83 million on the day, and just $40,314 on the Rainbow 6. Small payouts: the Super High 5 paid $1,160.70 in race 5. The late pick 5 paid a measly $119.15.
