On Sunday, the Gulfstream Park West meet will have two stakes races along with a Rainbow 6 carryover of $241,345 and a Super Hi-5 carryover of $3,590 on the first race.

First post is 12:35 p.m. for a nine-race card at Calder in Miami Gardens, Fla.

The Rainbow 6 is on races four to nine, with the sequence scheduled to start at 2:03 p.m.

The feature $60,000 Millions Filly & Mare Turf Preview is the ninth race. It is 7 1/2 furlongs

The seventh race is the $60,000 Juvenile Turf.  It is one mile for Florida-bred 2-YOs.

On Saturday, Venezuelan Hug won the $60,000 Millions Turf Preview, at 1 1/16 miles on for Florida-breds  3-YO and up.

Also on Saturday, Inthewinnerscircle won the $60,000 Juvenile Fillies Turf at one mile for Florida-bred 2-YO fillies.

We will have additional details and coverage this afternoon on this blog.

Sunday will be the fourth-to last day of the 2020 GP West meet.

Next Saturday, Nov. 28,  will  be the last day of the meet. Barring some startling developments it also will be the last day for horse racing at Calder.
This is the final year of the seven-year lease under which Gulfstream Park has held an annual October-November race meet at Calder.

Calder and its  parent Churchill Downs Inc. in Louisville, Ky., have said that they do not intend to renew the lease.  Gulfstream is mmaking plans to add October and November to its schedule at its track in Hallandale Beach, Fla.
This week we will have several stories about the closing week at Calder, including a review and analysis of events that led to it.
