At the Gulfstream Park West meet, three of Wednesday's five scheduled-for-turf races have been moved to the dirt track that is listed as Fast.
Those races are the first, third and fifth. As of 10:55 a.m. the seventh and ninth races are still scheduled for the turf which is listed as Good.
First post is12:00 p.m. for Wednesday's nine-race card at Calder in Miami Gardens, Fla.
Skies are clear around the Calder area and the Weather Channel forecast is for just a ten percent chance of rain during racing hours. But the turf is still drying out after recent days' heavy rains.
Wednesday is the 18th day of the 40-day GP West meet.
Thus far, there have been thirteen days on which meet sponsor Gulfstream Park has taken one or more races off the turf because of rain and/or lingering wet conditions.
Through Sunday. 45 of the 67 scheduled-for-turf races have been taken off that surface.
In all of last year's 40-day GP West meet there were only eight days on which one or more races were taken off the turf.
That meet had 168 scheduled-for turf races, with 26 coming off that surface.
On Wednesday, the Rainbow 6 has a carryover $59,224. The 20 cents per combination-only bet is on races four-to-nine with the sequence set to start at 2:34 p.m.
Gulfstream is guaranteeing that the Rainbow 6 jackpot/carryover will be at least $125,00 0 if thee is just one ticket with all six winners.
