Saturday:Off the Turf at GP West

Due to rain,  all five Gulfstream Park West scheduled-for-turf races on Saturday were moved to the dirt  track that is listed as  sloppy and is sealed.

That includes the still-to-be-run sixth, eighth and  tenth (last) races.

This is the 20th day of the 40-day GP West meet, which is being run at Calder.  It is the meet's ninth day on which meet sponsor Gulfstream Park has not held turf  racing because of wet  conditions.

In upcoming  articles  on this  blog and on our  Web site  we will have reports on how  the exceptional number of  off-the-turf days has impacted average  field  sizes (down significantly, as  might be expected) and all-sources handle (somewhat surprisingly it is running slightly ahead of  last  year).
