12 Races Saturday at Gulfstream

Gulfstream Park will start Saturday racing at 12:45 PM first post. It's the standard 12-race card, with two stakes races sprinkled in the late races (10 and 11).

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 wagering continues to build the jackpot, to $512,684 to a single winner - if and when - that lines up.

Friday saw $129,658 to into the Rainbow 6 pool, and 6 of 6 paid a nice $12,098.

We estimate there were 6 winning tickets. All four turf races were off the grass Friday (like Thursday), resulting in scratches.

The last race (10) was the lone long-shot win at 16:1 (Mija Bella) winning by 7 lengths off the turf in a Maiden Claiming race.

There are 67 starters listed for races 5-10, the Rainbow-6 sequence start is race 5 at approximate post time of 3:55 PM ET.

The Super Hi-5 has a small $2,313 carryover applied to race 1.
Good Luck!

Thursday: Gulfstream 2:00 PM Post

When Gulfstream Park resumes racing on Thursday, it will be the 68th day of the Spring-Summer meet that began back in early April.

A 10-race card is planned, with first post at 2:00 PM; twilight racing they call it, as last post is 6:37 PM. Sunday's racing action saw 11 races with no off-turf races.

The weather is affecting the track conditions of late, as 8 races were moved off-the-turf last week. That produces more scratches, and makes handicapping harder. It does reduce the field sizes for the multi-race wagers (Pick-4, Pick-5, Rainbow 6) which is a plus for handicapping. 70 winners pocketed $1,212 Sunday on the Rainbow 6, as the favorites won 4 of the six legs of that bet.

To wit
: Thursday's Rainbow 6 has 54 horses entered, about average - but could decline to the mid-to-high 40's after scratches. That's worth noting, with a $448,229 jackpot up for grabs. The Pick 4 and Pick 5 wagers have no carryovers, while the Super Hi-5 shows a $2,189 carryover, likely to be run in race 1 with 10 starters.

Race 5 kicks off the Rainbow 6 at 4:00 PM ET. That race is a maiden special weight for 2 year-old fillies on the dirt, a tough handicap to start off your wagers. Click HERE to subscribe to our blog posts.

We recommend to wager late as possible on the late races mentioned, as the weather and track conditions can change quickly.

Sunday's Gulfstream Park Racing Action

Sunday will wrap up the weeks racing at Gulfstream Park with 11 races and first post time at 1:15 PM. 

The ever-popular growing Rainbow-6 jackpot will stand at $412,491 for a single winner of the last 6 races correctly wagered.

The Pick-4, Pick-5, and Super Hi-5 have no carryovers.
The main track is listed at Fast, and the Turf looks like an Off-Turf day as of Sunday morning.

Race 8 today is a 2 year-old maiden claiming race at 5 furlongs, probably the hardest to handicap in the Rainbow-6 bet today.

Good Luck.

None-the-less, the track handle was $4.36 million, and 5 folks were winners of the Rainbow-6
wager where each earned $12,554. 
Race 5 (off the turf) was the high-odds winner at 23:1 to
kick off the Rainbow 6.
Saturday’s new jackpot will be $377,563 with a 3:52 PM Post time for race 7.
The Pick-4, Pick-5 and Super Hi-5 wagers have no carryover for Saturday.

Gulfstream Park: 2:00 Post Time Friday

Gulfstream Park will host 10 races Friday, under the usual balmy, humid weather in South Florida. Conditions are fast and firm as of Friday morning.
First Post is 2:00 PM under the twilight racing schedule. Last race is 6:30 PM, leaving patrons time for dinner and then the entertainment in the central walking ring.

The popular rainbow 6 jackpot is now $350,661 after 10 winners each won $7,414 on Thursday's wagers. Just one
race spoiled the fun Friday as Princess Knoll at 13:1 edged the favorite to win race 6. That led to the nice payout.

Race 5 kicks off the rainbow 6 at approx. 4:00 PM. Sixty horses are entered in that sequence, expected to be
whittled down due to scratches no doubt. The sole 2 year-old race is race 3. It's a maiden claiming race.

There are no carryovers on the Super High 5, Pick-4 and Pick-5 races Friday.

Bauer's Bets: No Turf Racing Again!

Mother nature just won't cooperate. No Turf racing until the fall. Going to make a few plays this afternoon.

Race 3- TARAWA (5) should beat this bunch, worth a nose bet if you like the odds. also will play a tri part wheel 5 with 1,6,7 with all.

Race 5-will play a 50 cent pick 4 part-wheel. 
3,6 with 1 with 2,3,8,9 with 4,6,7,8.             GOOD LUCK 

Bauer's Bets: Sunday at Tampa

Saturday was a bit of a disappointment as the rainy conditions forced a half dozen races off the turf onto a sloppy main track.
Let's hope for better going on Sunday. We have another eight race program to wrap up the mid-summer racing festival.

Race 1 is a five furlong dash on the green for $16,000 filly Maiden claimers. This is wide
open, it is hard like anyone here. EXOTIC GOLD (8) has some early foot, might get loose. VALIDITY (1) and GREAT TRY (3) should be in the mix.

$16,000 Maiden Filly claimers go 8 grassy furlongs in Race 2. LUNA QUEEN (2) gets blinkers on, and drops into claiming company for the first time. Tampa veteran Mike Allen rides, she should run on grass. WINNIE (3) and EMERSON'S QUEEN (4) are contenders.

Race 3 is another 5 furlong turf sprint, for $16,000 non-winners of two lifetime fillies. The choice is TARAWA (5) who faces condition claimers today, she has faced better in the past. SECRET RECIPE (1) is a speedy rival and IANA (6) fits with these.

$8,000 Maiden Filly claimers will race a mile and forty yards on the dirt in Race 4. Can't recommend anyone. However, trainer John Fennessey has an uncoupled pair of shippers, PREQUALIFIED (1) and FLY BY YOU (2), both are lightly raced and might be only ones in here likely to improve.

Maiden special fillies go a mile on the sod in Race 5. CASUAL (3) has been working well for Jonathan Thomas and Mike Allen rides. PIKES PEAK OR BUST (5) is in a good spot for Reid Nagle, but has failed vs. claimers. NATIVE ANGEL (6) could surprise.

Race 6 is at 5 furlongs on the lawn for $16,000 claiming Fillies who are non-winners of three races lifetime. FLORA FANTASY (8) could be a tough customer from the Efren Loza barn. I plan to bet TRAPPE ME LATER (1) who has beaten open claimers in the past. MISS CAY O' SEA (9) is the one to catch.

A field of eight $16,000 Maiden claimers go a mile on turf in Race 8. RAISE EM UP (3) drops in for Loza, a new gelding after a lackluster debut at Belmont. EARLY DELIGH (8) gets blinkers on, should improve.

The finale in Race 9 is for $16,000 claiming non-winners of two races lifetime sprinting 5 furlongs on the green. ELVIS COLE (4) tries grass for the first time, might be ok. FLASH MAN (8) has a chance back in a sprint. JACKS A WARRIOR (6) faces condition claimers for the first time, should move up.
