Gulfstream Fast and Firm for Thursday

The dirt track is listed as fast  and the turf course is listed as firm for  Thursday's  ten-race card at Gulfstream Park.

First post is 1:15 p.m. for the program that has a Rainbow 6 carryover of  $1,970,071.

On Wednesday, Gulfstream moved all four  scheduled-for-turf races to  the dirt  following heavy rains on Tuesday  night and early Wednesday.

Five of Thursday's races are scheduled for turf. Those are the third, fifth, seventh, ninth and tenth races.

The Weather Channel  forecast is for just a 15 percent chance of rain during racing hours.

The Rainbow 6 will begin on the fifth race, with  a scheduled post of  3:15 p.m. The carryover has grown because Gulfstream has gone 24 straight race days without the jackpot/carryover payoff requirement of just one ticket with the  winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.

On Thursday morning, four horses were scratched from the Rainbow 6 races.  Those horses, with program numbers, are:

Fifth race -  Irish Princess (2)
Seventh  race -- Catoutofthebag (2)
Tenth race -- Bar Libre (1) and Livinadream (10)

That leaves the Rainbow 6 races with 46  entrants --a relatively  low number.

That  increases the chances that there will again be multiple winning  tickets, and an extension of  the carryover into Friday.
