GP West Back on Turf for Friday

Racing is back on the turf on Friday at the Gulfstream Park West meet, which is run at Calder in Miami Gardens.

Skies were clear at Calder at 10:30 a.m., amid expe ctations that they  would stay  that way.

The course is listed as Firm and the dirt track is listed as Fast for the nine-race  card with first post of 12:35 p.m.

That follows Thursday, when four of the five scheduled-for-turf races were moved to dirt, and Wednesday, when all five scheduled for turf races were moved to dirt—due to wet conditions from rain that fell earlier those days.

Thursday was the  34th  day  of the 40-day GP West meet that will end Nov. 26.  On eleven days, meet sponsor Gulffstream Park took most or all of its scheduled-for-turf races off that surface.

Last  year, races were taken off turf on only four days in the 37-day meet.

Five of today’s races--the odd-numbered ones—are scheduled for turf with the rail at  20 feet.
The carryover on the Rainbow 6 is $42,656.  It  is  on races four to  nine.

The Weather Channel  forecast is for  just a 15 percent chance of rain during racing hours.
