G.P. West's Thanksgiving Racing

Gulfstream Park West enters the ‘stretch run’ this Thursday – Thanksgiving Day – as it plans an 8-race card with first post time of 12:05 PM. 

This Fall meet will end on Sunday, Nov. 25th.
Races 1,3,5,8 will be on the turf, with all races listed as either claiming, allowance optional claiming, or maiden special weight.

Race 8 is the sole 2 year-old jaunt, with a $60,000 purse on the turf.

This is no doubt the toughest handicap of the day, with 12 entries.

The Rainbow 6 wager starts in race 3 at about 1:05 PM, and the Pick 4 at 1:35 PM.

In Sunday’s action, the last live racing day, 101 starters ran 11 races. A big upset in the last race threw most multi race wagers away when Early Deligh won at 25:1 odds.

That resulted in nice payouts for the Late Pick 4, $625, and the Late Pick 5, $2,762.

The five Rainbow 6 winners each banked $6,463. The other horses in the Rainbow 6 winners mix were between 1.6 and 3.7 to 1 odds.
You never know where the odd-ball win will occur.

Thursday’s carryovers include the Super Hi-5 in race 1 at $1,768, and the Rainbow 6 at $80,888

Live racing plans to return to Gulfstream Park across the county in Hallandale December 1st.

G.P. West Preview, Friday's Recap

With just 5 race days left in the Fall Meet after today, Gulfstream Park West will run 10 races Saturday, with the race card commencing near 12:30 PM.

Last post will be 5:06 PM. There is no chance of rain forecast with a high near 80 degrees during racing.
G.P. West will race tomorrow, then end the meet with a four day stretch from Thanksgiving Day through Sunday, Nov. 25th.
Friday’s racing action – in it’s 9 race card – saw little fan fare, with 3 favorites entering the winners circle, and the high-odds winner was Day of Reckoning (17:1) by a head in race 4.
Since race 4 was the start of the Rainbow 6 wager, that bet paid a nice $11,156.
The Late Pick 4 and Pick 5 were not affected, so they paid less than normal – at $101.30 and $833.50 respectively. The Super High 5 also paid a tidy $2,433 in race 9 with 10 starters.
The sole carryover for Saturday’s card will be $51,340 on the Rainbow 6. That sequence will be in races 5-10 with a post time of 2:30 PM with race 5.

Good Luck, thanks for reading!

GP West Thursday Preview

There were no tickets with the winners in all six  races in the Rainbow 6 at the Gulfstream Park \West meet on Wednesday.

So GP West made a non-jackpot payoff to tickets with five  winners. Our research shows there were two such tickets.  Each was paid $19,483.80 on the 20-cent only bet.

The Rainbow 6 carryover grew from $23,830 to  $32,180 for Thursday.

First post will be 12:30 p.m. for Thursday's nine-race card. The Rainbow 6 will be on races four to  nine with the  sequence scheduled to start at 2:00 p.m.

The Wednesday  Rainbow 6 was on races  five to  ten.

A large number of tickets  were knocked out when 32-1 shot Herecitykitty won the fifth race (first leg).  Odds on the other five winners were 6-1  or  lower.

The winning combination was 8-7-1-8-1-12
