Gulfstream Takes 12th Race Off the Turf

Gulfstream Park has moved Saturday's 12th and final race from turf to the dirt track that is listed as fast.

As of 1:45 p.m. races five,six, eight, nine and eleven remain scheduled for turf which is listed as good.

Gulfstream moved today's  first race from turf  to  dirt,

It was the first race that Gulfstream has taken off the furf since Feb.18, 2018. Until today, it went 43 das without such a surface shift

Rainn fell late yesterday afternoon and into the  evening in Hallandale Beach, where Gulfstream is located.

Skies cleared this morning and the Weather Channel forecast is for a zero percent chance of rain in Hallandale Beach  this afternoon.

By taking two races off the turf, Gulfstream  is giving its heavily-used turf course at least a bit of a chance  to dry out.

The 12th race is a $12,500 claimer for maiden fillies and mares, 3-years-old and up.  it was scheduled for about 7 1/2 furlongs on turf, but will  b e run at seven furlongs on dirt.

As of 1:45 p.m., only Surely Temple (2) and Montauk Miss (4) have been scratched from the 12th race--leaving a field of ten

The 12th race is the last race in the Rainbow 6, which has a carryover of $653,360.  It  starts onthe seventh race with  scheduled post of 4:00 p,m,
