Gulfstream Park will have a Super Hi-5 carryover of $32,555.27 on Thursday, starting with the second race for which scheduled post is 1:05 p.m.
First post is 12:35 for the ten-race card. Conditions are fast and firm.
Gulfstream offers the Super Hi-5 on all races with seven or more entrants.
The first race is down to six starters, due to two scratches.
Thus the Super Hi-5 will begin with the second race. It is a $32,000 maiden special weight at one mile on turf for maiden 3-year-old Florida-bred fillies. It has ten entrants, following the scratch of Diplomatic Affair, from post 11.
If there are no winning Super Hi 5 tickets, the bet will resume on the fifth race. There will be fewer than seven starters in the third and fourth races.
The Super Hi-5 requires picking the first five horses in order. The minimum bet is $1 per combination, with an 18 percent takeout. Multiple combinations are allowed, with multiple horses in any slots.
Gulfstream pays out on the Super Hi-5 only when there are one or more tickets with the correct order of the first five finishers. There are no consolation payouts.
Thus, when no tickets have the first five places, all of the pool rolls into the next race.
Today’s $32,555.27 is one of the largest start-of-day pools yet for the new format for the Super Hi-5 that Gulfstream introduced for the current championship meet.
We expect that there will be $40,000 or more bet on the Super Hi-5 in the second race.
We will have periodic updates on Gulfstream this afternoon on this blog.-- Jim Freer
