"Gettin' Out Alive" Feature Starts Friday; We Handicap the Day's Last Race at Gulfstream

HRFLA Staff Report

This Friday, Sept. 11, HorseRacingFLA will begin a regular feature that we are calling "Gettin' Out Alive."

In it, HRFLA editor Jim Freer will handicap and suggest bets on the day's  last race at Gulfstream Park.

That race is also the final race of the Rainbow 6,  Late Pick 5 and Late Pick 4 at Gulfstream.  

If you have been knocked out of one or both of those bets, hitting the exacta and maybe the trifecta on the last race can be a big lift for your confidence and for your bankroll.

One reason why Gulfstream's last race is a challenge is that it often is a claiming or maiden claiming race with a full field of twelve horses. 

Gulfstream's carding of that kind of wide open or head-scratching kind of race as its finale provides incentive for many bettors to go deep into it on Rainbow 6, Late Pick 5 and Late Pick 4 bets--thus providing a boost to handle.

We will post Gettin' Out Alive around 12:00 p.m., which is first post time  most days at Gulfstream.

That  will allow us to factor in scratches and surface conditions and give you time to include us in your handicapping.  

We will have Gettin' Out Alive on this blog and on our Web site https://www.horseracingfla.com/  

We have staked ourselves with a mental bet $500 for the remaining thirteen days of Gulfstream's spring/summer meet, which will end Sept. 27. 

Friday's ninth and last race is a $25,000 maiden claimer with a  $29,000 purse.  It is one mile on turf for 3-YO and up.

There  are 12 entrants, including  two also eligibles.

We'll have more around noon on Friday.
