Gulfstream Park has a nine-race card on Thursday, with first post coming up at 1:15 p.m.

The feature is the sixth race.  It is a one-mile turf  allowance/optional claimer for 3-year-olds and up.  The purse is $44,000 and the optional claiming price is $62,500. 

It is the sixth race with scheduled post of 3:58 p.m.

Two Step Time and Quiet Force,  both trained by Mike Maker,  are likely favorites in a seven-horse field.
Two Step Time’s last ten races have been stakes.  The 4-year-old colt finished third or better in three of them. 

That includes a third  place finish in the 1 1/16 mile Tropical Park Derby at Gulfstream last Dec 30.Emisael Jaramillo will ride Two Step Time, owned by  Get  Away Farm.
Quiet Force has finished third or better in six of his eleven  turf starts at Gulfstream. That includes three victories.

Tyler Gaffalione will ride Quiet Force, a  non-gelded 7-year-old owned by Rev it Up Racing and Imaginary Stables.

Bashart (Patrick Biancone-Anthony Crastus) and the late-running J R’s Holiday (Henry Collazo-Martin Ramirez)  are main threats to the Maker  horses.

The Thursday card has  a Rainbow 6 carryover of $42,412, on races  four through nine.

Conditions are listed as fast and firm. The Weather Channel  forecast is for less than a 25  percent  chance of rain during racing hours.

*Gulfstream will have two stakes races on Saturday.
