Early Results at Wet Gulfstream

For early trends at rainy and sloppy-surface Gulfstream,  this is what happened in the first three races (all for claimers).

Thus far, it is a mixed bag.  Note that on Sunday early leaders held on to win only four of the twelve races on a sloppy and sealed track.

First race  -- Outrun, at 2-1, took the lead entering the turn and won by 16 lengths -- yes 16 -- over R Baby Driver.

Outrun ran seven furlongs in 1:24.13--a solid time in a claiming race no matter the conditions.

It was the first race on a wet track for Outrun, a 4-year-old gelded son of Medaglia d'Oro. 

Second race -- Truge (3) rallied on the outside and won in a respectable 1:11.81 over six furlongs.

Third race -- At five furlongs, moved from turf to dirt.  Greeley is Back (7) led at every call and held off Players Luck for a narrow win,  The winning time was a respectable 57.81 seconds.

Greeley is Back came in with a second place finish in his only start on a wet track. Players Luck now has a win and two seconds in three starts on wet dirt surfaces.

The 50 cent Pick 3 paid $36.85.
