GP West: Friday Recap

Poco Man, the 2-1 second choice, won  Friday's tenth and final race at the Gulfstream Park West meet.

Three longshots followed, showing how difficult it often is to hit the Super Hi 5 that requires picking a race's first five finishers.

Drover Road finished second at 82-1 in the one mile turf race, an $8,000 claimer for 3-year-olds and up.  The  next three finishers in the ten-horse field were He's Spectacular (54-1), Hugo Light (32-1) and Divine Delivery (6-1).

The superfecta paid $1,532.02 for a ten cent bet. 

In the Super Hi 5, there were no tickets with even the first three finishers.   The consolation payoff was on 5 (Poco Man)-6 (Drover Road)-ALL-ALL-ALL. It paid $1,861.40 for the minimum 50 cent bet.

There will be a Super Hi 5 carryover of $2,792 going into Saturday's first race at GP West--the name Gulfstream Park uses for the meet it is holding at Calder.

The Super Hi 5 is a rolling bet. If  there are no tickets with all five places, 25 percent of the bet on a race goes to holders  of  consolation  tickets and 75 percent goes into a carryover.

In Friday's Rainbow 6, all six  winning horses were at 5-1 or lower. The payoff was $1,006.34 on the 20-cent per combination only bet.  There were 12 wining tickets. The carryover grew by $6,522 and is $22,005 for Saturday.

* On Saturday, GP West will have the first  stakes race of Its meet that began on Oct. 7.

The Little Miss  Magic is 1 1/8 miles on turf for fillies and mares 3-years-old and up. It is the fifth race on a ten-race card with first post of 1:15 p.m. Eastern.

We will have a preview of the Little Miss Magic on  Saturday morning.
