Saturday's Stakes at Gulfstream; 12:45 PM Post
Gulfstream plans a 12 race card today, with first post at 12:45 pm.
The Weather Channel forecasts a 5-15% chance of rain and/or thunderstorms during race hours.
There are two stakes races on the day: The Not Surprising in race 7 and the Martha Washington in race 9. Both are $100,000 purses on the turf course for 3 year-olds.
Art G is Back is the 7:5 favorite in race 7, and Vow to Recover gets the nod as the 8:5 favorite in the 9th.
68 starters ran 9 races Friday, with 3 favorites winning their races.
The huge upset of the day was in race 8, where South Pass, 56:1 beat the favorite Drill Down Dude by 1-1/4 lengths in the 5 furlong dirt run. That was the catalyst to propell the Rainbow 6 and the Late Pick 5 wager to nice payouts. The Pick 5 pool was larger than the Rainbow pool by $3,442, with a $11 higher payout.
Late Pick 5 paid: $5,191.10
Late Pick 4 paid: $572.80
Rainbow 6 paid: $5,180
The Rainbow 6 paid out 11 bettors. That's the sole carryover for today is $65,565 to be run starting in race 7 at approximately a 3:44 PM Post Time.
Good Luck and thanks for reading!
