Juvenile Filly Amapola Sets GP Record, But is DQ'd

Amapola set a Gulfstream Park track record of 50.99 seconds for 4 ½ furlongs in Wednesday’s third race.

However, following an inquiry, stewards disqualified Amapola and moved her back to sixth place for interference with two horses entering the turn.

Lu Lu Laura, who came in second by about ten lengths, was named the official winner of the race—a  $55,000 maiden special weight for 2-YO fillies.

The race had a carryover, dating back to this past Sunday, of  $14,330.75 on the Super Hi-5 which requires picking the first five finishers in correct order.

Bettors added $78,795 to the pool—with about $70,000 coming in the final 60 seconds before the horses left the gate.

There were multiple winning tickets, each paying $1,435.10 for a $1 bet.

There will be a new Super Hi-5 pool on the fifth race, the next race with the minimum required seven starters.

We will have more details on the third  race and the entire card at the end of the day.
