Gulfstream Super Hi-5 Carryover Now in Second Race

Due to three scratches in Thursday's first race, Gulfstream Park will not offer its carried-over Super Hi-5 bet until the second race. 

Scheduled post for the second race is 1:46 p.m.

That carryover is $1,767.93--stemming from there being no winning Super Hi-5 tickets in Sunday's 11th and final race. The bet requires picking the first five places in correct order, with no consolation payoffs.

Gulfstream offers the Super Hi-5 on all races with seven or more starters.  The first race is now down to six entrants--following the scratches of two Main Track Only entrants and of McFly (program number 7).

As of 11:45 a.m., the second race has seven entrants. Barring any late scratches, it will have the Super Hi-5.

It is a $10,000 maiden claimer at seven furlongs on dirt for 3-year-olds  and up.

Handicapping the race is a challenge. But keep in mind that overnight carryovers of this  size often lure in attractive pools of $20,000 or so.
Nacho Giant (6), Getaway Car (1) and Focus Pocus (3) appear to have the best shots of winning in a weak field.  Vineyard Haven (7), trained and co-owned by Kathleen O'Connell, could be a live long shot.
