Gulfstream: No Super Hi-5 Until Second Race

Due to a scratch in the first race, there will be no Super Hi-Five until the second race at Gulfstream Park on Thursday.

In the second race, there will be a Super Hi-5 carryover of $11,570.39. That extends from Sunday’s last two races when there were no tickets with the first five finishers in correct order.

The Super Hi-5 was scheduled as part of the wagering on the first race, with scheduled post of 1:15 p.m. 

But Glass of Wine, a likely favorite, was scratched from the first race on Thursday morning, per the order of a veterinarian.

That left the first race with a six-horse field.

Gulfstream has the Super Hi-5 on all races with seven or more 
starters.  It is a $1 minimum bet.

The second race, with scheduled post of 1:46 p.m., has seven entrants. 

As of 11:15 a.m. there are no scratches.  It is six furlongs on dirt, for three-year-olds and up.

Because of the carryover and three days to handicap, it was expected that there would be $50,000 or more wagered on the Super Hi-5  in the first race.
