Gulfstream Park West enters the ‘stretch run’ this Thursday – Thanksgiving Day – as it plans an 8-race card with first post time of 12:05 PM. This Fall meet will end on Sunday, Nov. 25th. Races 1,3,5,8 will be on the turf, with all races listed as either claiming, allowance optional claiming, or maiden special weight.
Race 8 is the sole 2 year-old jaunt, with a $60,000 purse on the turf. This is no doubt the toughest handicap of theday, with 12 entries. The Rainbow 6 wager starts in race 3 at about 1:05 PM, and the Pick 4 at 1:35 PM.
In Sunday’s action, the last racing day, 101 starters ran 11 races. A big upset in the last race threw most multi race wagers away when Early Deligh won at 25:1 odds. That resulted in nice payouts for the Late Pick 4, $625, and the Late Pick 5, $2,762.
The five Rainbow 6 winners each banked $6,463. The other horses in the Rainbow 6 winners mix were between 1.6 and 3.7 to 1 odds. You never know where the odd-ball win will occur.
Thursday’s carryovers include the Super Hi-5 in race 1 at$1,768, and the Rainbow 6 at $80,888.
Live racing plans to return to Gulfstream Park in Hallandale December 1st.
