Gulfstram: Favorite Wins Late Pick 5 Opening Leg

Sturgeon, the 6-5 favorite, won Gulfstream's fifth race, to start Friday's carried-over Late Pick 5.

The carryover  coming in was $32,182.  That  was a big attraction for bettors who added $200,197 to the pool.

We  will be  back  this evening to recap today's races and look at  Saturday's Gulfstream  card.

Rainbow 6 Opener Won by 4-1 Shot

Gump (8), at 4-1, breezed tp a victory in Friday's fourth race  at Gulfstream.

It was the start of the Rainbow 6.  Bettors poured  $325,056 into  that pool--on the high side of the $250,,000 plus that we expected.

The  carryover coming in was $1,294,321.

The Late Pick5, with a carryover of $32,182, begins with the fifth race.

Carryovers Coming Up in Rainbow 6 and Late Pick 5

The fourth race  is coming up at Gulfstream with scheduled post of 3:$9  p.m.

But look for it to be delayed at least three minutes because it is the start of the Rainbow 6 with a carryover that has grown to  $1.294,321.

The Late Pick follows with a carryover of $32,182.

We are looking for as much as  $150,000 to be bet on the Picke 5 and as much as $250,000 on the Rainbow 6--both high for a weekday.

On Thursday there were no  Late Pick 5 tickets with all five  winners and no  Rainbow 6 tickets with all six winners.

A main reason was that Silver Tunes, at 85-1, won the ninth and final  race.
