Gulfstream: 10 Races Saturday 12:20 PM Post

 

Gulfstream Park will resume racing Saturday, Oct. 2 with a 10 race schedule and a 12:20 P.M. post time.

There are no stakes races planned. Five races are scheduled on the ALL WEATHER TRACK, as Gulfstream describes it. This new track surface made its debut on Thursday with 5 races, and another 4 races on Friday under Showery conditions. Five of 9 races were won by the favorites thus far.

This is the first October racing in many years at the Hallandale, Fla. track, after Gulfstream ended its Fall Meet (October-November) contract with Churchill Downs in late 2020.

That means Gulfstream will now offer year-round racing at one facility. Friday's racing action included a $3.75 million handle, 9 races, and a nice $21,275 payout on the Rainbow 6 wager. Just 2 winners had the correct horses in all six races! The Late Pick 5 paid even more, $37,648.

Saturday's carryover will be $252,130 for the Rainbow 6, with a post time of 2:52 PM starting in race 5 for the wagering sequence. The Super High 5 bet also has a $3,878 carryover. That wager will comence in the first race with 7 or more starters Saturday.

Good Luck!

Sire Stakes Headlines Gulfstream's Saturday Races

 Gulfstream Park has 12 races scheduled today, as the Sire Stakes 3rd and last leg of the series gets underway.

It's day 91 of the Spring-Summer meet that started way back in April, and ends next week on Sept. 30th. 

$125,000 Wildcat Heir StakesRace 7; 3:26 PM Post ; 1 mile on dirt for Florida-bred 3 year-olds

$400,000
 My Dear Girl StakesRace 9; 4:30 PM Post; 1-1/16 miles on dirt for 2 year-old filles


$400,000
 In Reality StakesRace 11; 5:38 PM Post; 1-1/16 miles on dirt for 2 year-old Colts and Geldings

 The Morning Line favorites are: Wildcat Heir: WELL DEFINED at 2:1; My Dear Girl: OUTFOXED at 4/5, and In Reality: OCTANE @ 2:1. 

Just 24 entries are listed total for the three races, so bettors may well consider these races vs. the higher field-sized claiming races.

 Race 4's entries will run for the Hollywood Beach Stakes (non-Sire Stakes race) also. Eleven horses are entered. That race will be a shorter 5 furlongs on TURF, with a $75,000 purse. Post time is approximately 1:50 PM. The favorite here is LAST LEAF at 2:1 odds.

CARRYOVERS: The sole carryover on Saturday will be the Rainbow 6 wager. It now sits at $144,818 in its 8th day. On Friday, 39 bettors won $1,179.04 each. No one had all 6 winners, so that payout ratcheted down to 5 of 6 winning tickets. That's happened just one other time this meet, August 15th.

The Rainbow 6 kicks off with race 7 at approximately 3:26 PM.

Good Luck Today and thanks for reading !

Gulfstream Park's Thursday Racing; 12:50 PM Post Time

 

Florida's Gulfstream Park will run an 8-race card Thursday, with first post time of 12:50 PM. There are no stakes races.

Three turf races are planned: #4,6,8. Four of the last 5 race days have seen multiple off turf races due to rain. There is just one carryover to consider: The Rainbow 6 wager.


The carryover is $108,768 on the 20 cent bet in day # 6 of the new wagering sequence. September 11th was the last Mandatory payout. 
One advantage perhaps is the lower field sizes of the 6 races; just 46 on average the past 5 race days. Betting pools are near $100,000 the last two days, but ramp up when the carryover increases.

So a Thursday or Friday wager may face less competition than the increased weekend bettors. Just a thought.

In Sunday's racing, 9/19; 19 winners split the $111,112 pool, each taking $3,275 on the Rainbow (Pick-6) bet.

Good Luck.

Choose Joy WinsTurf Sprint Handicap at GP; Rainbow 6 Carryover Grows Past $400,000

HRFLA Staff Report

Choose Joy beat Bernie's Mistress by a length in Sunday's $60,000 Village of Biscayne Park Handicap at Gulfstream Park.

The race was five furlongs on turf for fillies and mares 3-YO  and up.

With Miguel Vasquez riding, Choose Joy won in 55.65 seconds on the course listed as Firm. She earned an Equibase Speed figure of 96 that tied her career best.

Steve Dwoskin owns and  trains Choose Joy, a 4-year-old daughter of Munnings.

The win was Choose Joy's sixth in twelve career starts. Four of her wins have been in five-furlong turf  stakes and handicaps at Gulfstream.

On Sunday, Choose Joy carried 125 pounds--seven more than any of her six rivals.

As the field entered the straightaway on Sunday, Choose Joy was in fourth place and Bernie's Mistress was fifth.

Choose Joy, the 2-5 favorite, passed  the leader  Cat's Astray about 50 yards from the wire.  Bernie's Mistress, at 13-1, finished a neck ahead of Cat's Astray.

Rainbow 6

The Village of Biscayne Park was part of the Rainbow 6, on  which each ticket with all six winning horses won $1,381.18 on a 20-cent bet.  HorseRacingFLA's review of Equibase charts shows there were 80 tickets with all of the winners.

Program numbers of the winning horses, in races six to eleven, were 1-6-12-9-6-6.

Gulfstream's next live racing day will be this coming Friday Sept. 3--when the Rainbow 6 carryover will be  $408,296.

The Hallandale Beach, Fla., track will have ten races with first post of 2:00 p.m.

The Rainbow 6 will be on races five to ten with the sequenced scheduled to start at 4:12 p.m. 

Gulfstream is guaranteeing that the Rainbow 6  pool (new bets plus carryover) will be at least $600,000 if there is just one ticket with all six winning horses. 

That ticket would take down the Rainbow 6 jackpot, which is made up of the entire carryover plus 80 percent of the day's new bet.

On Sunday, $196,324 was bet on the Rainbow 6. Following its rules for days with multiple winning tickets, Gulfstream took out 20 percent of that bet. It then divided 56 percent among the tickets with six winners and added 24 percent to the carryover.

Friday's first race will have a Super Hi-5 carryover of $6,950.

Travers: Bob Bauer's Bets


The Travers Stakes (Grade 1) has a post-t ime of 6:12 p.m. on Saturday at Saratoga.  Analysis by our handicapper Bob  Bauer is below.

This afternoon, we also will have coverage of several  undercard races at Saratoga,


Saratoga's mid-summer Derby runs through ESSENTIAL QUALITY (2), no doubt. This Brad Cox trainee is the one to beat, boasting seven wins from eight attempts with over $3.5 million in the bank. Top jock Luis Saez who is leading the riders race by ten tallies retains the mount. Expect this worthy favorite to go in the gate odds-on.

There are a pair of rivals who could upset here if given the opportunity.

KEEPMEINMIND (3), gave the favorite all he could handle in the Jim Dandy Stakes, the traditional Travers prep, only missing by a half-length. He has been impressive on the training track and is worth a bet at 6 to 1 on the morning line.

DYNAMIC ONE (4) was the winner of the local Curlin Stakes after a two month break for the powerful Pletcher outfit. He ran a lifetime best speed figure that day and bigger prizes may be ahead. Also 6 to 1 on the morning line.

THE BET  $10 to win on KEEPMEINMIND (3) and a $5 exacta box with ESSENTIAL QUALITY (2) and DYNAMIC ONE (4).  2,3,4,

One Live Rainbow 6 Ticket as Last Race Approaches

With Gulfstream's tenth and final race coming up, post time at 6:00 p.m., there is just one live ticket in the Rainbow 6.

That ticket has one live horse Power (4).

Program numbers of winning horses thus far are 8-7-6-7-6.

Horses at double-digit odds won the first three races in the Rainbow 6.

That sets up the prospect of one ticket taking down the Rainbow 6 jackpot pool,  and the prospect of a big payoff or a big carryover on the Late Pick 5,

Gulfstream: The Week Ahead


Gulfstream Park's next live race day will be this Friday Aug 13, with nine races and first post of 2:00 p.m.

As it continues its spring/summer meet's regular schedule, Gulfstream in Hallandale Beach, Fla., also will have racing this Saturday and Sunday.

Friday's first race has a Super Hi-5 carryover of $3,597.

The Rainbow 6 carryover, now three race days old, is $100,851.

The 20 cents per combination-only bet will be on races four to nine with the sequence scheduled to start at 3:40 p.m.

Gulfstream is guaranteeing that Friday's Rainbow 6 pool will be at least $200,000 if there is just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races. 

In that case, Gulfstream would need to put in some money if the combination of the carryover and the day's new Rainbow 6 bet is less than $200,000.

A single ticket winner would take down the Rainbow 6 jackpot--made up of the entire coming-in carryover plus 80 percent of the new Rainbow 6 bet (20 percent takeout).

When there are multiple tickets with six winners, Gulfstream takes out 20 percent of the day's  bet and then divides 56 percent among winning tickets and adds 24 percent to the carryover.

The Gulfstream condition book shows two stakes races--both on Saturday.

The $75,000 Benny the Bull Stakes will be seven furlongs on dirt for Florida-breds who are 3-YO and up.

The $60,000 Aventura will be one mile on dirt for 3-YOs.

The carryover coming in was $500,635. Bettors added $2,331,923 to the Rainbow 6. Gulfstream had projected that Rainbow 6 betting would be about$2.5 million.

The jackpot is made up of 80 percent of the day's new Rainbow 6 bet and the entire carryover,

Gulfstream will divide that money among all tickets with the six winning horses,

.


Gulfstream Fast and Firm for Mandatory Rainbiw 6

 Conditions are Fast and Firm for Gulfstream Park's 13-race Saturday card--with a mandatory payout of the Rainbow 6 jackpot.

The Rainbow 6 is on races eight to thirteen with the sequence set to start at 3:47 p.m.

The carryover coming in is $500,635. Gulfstream officials expect that the payout on the carryover will attract about $2.5 million in bets on the Rainbow 6.
The tenth race is the $100,000 Desert Vixen for 2-YO fillies and the 12th race is the $100,000 Dr. Fager for 2-YO males. Those are the first two races in this year's Florida Sire Stakes Series.



Gulfstream Saturday: Rainbow 6 Payout and Sire Stakes

 Gulfstream Park on Saturday will have an "all of it must go"   mandatory payout of its Rainbow 6 jackpot, along with the first two races in this year's Florida Sire Stakes series for 2-year-olds. 

 Gulfstream officials expect that the pool for the Rainbow 6 will be about $3 million.  That would be made up of a carryover of $500,635 (which has grown over 13 race days)plus about $2.5 million in new bets attracted by the carryover.

Gulfstream will have thirteen races with first post at 12:20 p.m. 

The Rainbow 6 will be on races eight o  13 with the sequence scheduled to start at 3:47 p.m. It is a 20-cents per combination-only bet. 

The jackpot consists of the entire carryover plus 80 percent of the day's Rainbow 6 bets.

On "mandatory days," Gulfstream pays out the jackpot no matter the number of tickets with the most winning horses (usually six) in the Rainbow 6.

On days without a mandatory pay, Gulfstream pays out the jackpot only if there is just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6.

On non-mandatory days when there are multiple tickets with the most winning horses (usually  six), Gulfstream takes out 20 percent of the day's Rainbow 6 bet. It then divides 56 percent among tickets with the most winners and adds 24 percent to the carryover.

The Rainbow 6 on Saturday will include the two Florida Sire Stakes races. They are restricted to Florida-bred 2-year-olds that are sons or daughters of Florida-registered stallions that are nominated for the program by their (stallion) owners.

We will have coverage during the afternoon ov this blog.

Gulfstream Weekend: Rainbow 6l Sire Stakes

HRFLA Staff Report 

After being dark for four days, Gulfstream Park will resume racing on Friday with ten races and first post of 2:00 p.m.

On Saturday, Gulfstream  will have the first two races in this year's Florida Sire Stakes series for Florida bred 2-year-olds that meet a series of eligibility requirements.

Another possible Gulfstream highlight on Saturday is an "all must go" mandatory payout  of the entire jackpot on the Rainbow 6. If Gulfstream has that payout, betting on the Rainbow 6 probably will be at least $2.5 million.

The jackpot consists of the entire carryover plus 80 percent of the day's Rainbow 6 bets.

On "mandatory days," Gulfstream pays out the jackpot no matter the number of tickets with the most winning horses (usually six) in the Rainbow 6.

On days without a mandatory pay, Gulfstream pays out the jackpot only if there is just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6.

On non-mandatory days when there are multiple tickets with the most winning horses (usually  six), Gulfstream takes out 20 percent of the day's Rainbow 6 bet. It then divides 56 percent among tickets with the most winners and adds 24 percent to the carryover.

Whether Gulfstream has a mandatory  payout on Saturday will depend on what happens Friday in the Rainbow 6.

The Rainbow 6 will have will have a carryover of $458,914.

The 20 cents per combination-only bet will be on races five to ten, with the sequence scheduled to start at 4:00 p.m.

The carryover has been growing because Gulfstream has gone twelve straight race days without the jackpot payoff requirement of just one ticket with all six winners. If the Rainbow 6 is hit by a single ticket on Friday, it will take down the carryover. In that case, Gulfstream will start a new Rainbow  6 pool on Saturday.

If there are multiple winning tickets on Friday, the carryover will grow again (probably to about $500,000), and Gulfstream will have a mandatory Rainbow 6 payout.

Gulfstream wagering history indicates that the guaranteed payout of that large a carryover probably will attract between $2,5 million and $3 million in Rainbow 6 bets.

Saturday Races

On Saturday, Gulfstream will have thirteen races with first  post at  12:20 p.m.

The Rainbow 6 will be on races eight to  thirteen with the sequence scheduled to start at 3:47 p.m.

We will have previews on Saturday morning md  coverage later in the  day.

There are no stakes races on the Friday card.

Om days when there is not a single-ticket winner, Gulfstream takes out 20 percent of the day's Rainbow 6 bet. It then divides 56 percent among multiple tickets with the most winners (usually six) and adds 24 percent to the carryover.

On Sunday, Gulfstream's most recent  race day, $203,831 was bet on the Rainbow 6. There were 22 tickets with all  six winners, Each won $5,238 on a  20-cent bet.
