Handicapping for GP Rainbow 6, Tampa Late Pick 5
It is Friday morning on a day with a big late multi-race carryover at each Florida track, and HorseRacingFLA will provide handicapping and race reports.
Look for this coverage beginning at approximately 1:00 p.m. Eastern on this blog.
Tampa Bay Downs has a carryover of $34,138 on its Late Pick 5. It is on races six through ten, with the sequence scheduled to start at 2:51 p.m. Bob Bauer, our associate editor for Tampa Bay, will handicap the five races.
Gulfstream Park has a carryover that has grown to $219,934 on its Rainbow 6. It is on races five through ten, with the sequence set to start at 2:35 p.m. Our editor Jim Freer will handicap the six races.
It is likely that more than $100,000 will be bet on the Late Pick 5 at Tampa Bay and that as much as $200,000 will be bet on the Rainbow 6 at Gulfstream. Both amounts would be well above averages for weekdays.
At Tampa Bay, first post is 12:25 p.m. for a ten-race card.
At Gulfstream, first post is 12:35 p.m. for a ten-race card.
Conditions are Fast and Firm and clear skies are forecast at both tracks.
