Gulfstream Park has an 11-race card Saturday, July 1st. It’s the first day of the tracks fiscal year, which will run until June 30th, 2024.
First post is at 12:50 PM in Hallandale Beach, Fla. Last gate call is around 6:00 PM.
There is one stakes race, the Smile Sprint Stakes with a 5:30 PM post time. It’s a $100,000 purse race on the dirt for 3 y/olds at 6 furlongs. Dean Delivers is the 2:1 morning line favorite in the 10th race.
The Rainbow 6 wagers plus the Sunday carryover was paid out Friday, as Gulfstream announced last weekend a mandatory payout of the Rainbow 6 on June 30th. The betting totalled $1.45 million and the payout was $3,061.66 per winning ticket. The total number of winners was not available at press time Friday evening. The winning program numbers were: 5-2-7-1-3/4/6/7/8-1 for the Rainbow 6. Four scratched horses in the 7th race helped a bit. The Saturday wagering should decline for the Rainbow 6 as the carryover resets to zero.
Total all-sources track handle was $6.55 million Friday.
See you in the winners circle !
