Gulfstream Super Hi-5 Hit for $2,396.70

The carried-over Super Hi-5 was hit  in Friday's first race at Gulfstream and it paid $2,396.70 for the minimum $1 bet.

Real Steel, at 14-1, rallied to catch the 9-5 favorite Storming Inti in mid stretch and won by two lengths. Meuser, at 5-1, finished third in the seven-horse field.

The fourth race will be Friday's next race with the Super Hi-5.  That race is scheduled to have seven starters--the minimum for Gulfstream to have the Super Hi-5.

The carryover coming in for Friday's first race was $1,388.32. Bettors, with overnight to handicap, added $12,397 to the pool.

Valoordo and Imaginethatmom finished fourth and fifth, respectively.  The order by program number was 2-5-6-4-1.

The first race was 7 1/2 furlongs on turf for 3-year-olds and up, with a $16,000 claiming price and $18,000 purse.  
Real Steel raced in second place most of the way and won in 1:30.48 on the course listed  as good.

On Thursday, when the course was listed as good, four of the six turf races were won gate-to-wire.
