Rainbow 6 Coming Up at Off-Turf Gulfstream

The fifth race is coming up on Sunday's ten-race card at Gulfstream Park, and for the third straight day races have been taken off the turf.

For Sunday, all three scheduled-for-turf races have been moved to the dirt track, which is listed  as Fast.

There has been no  rain this afternoon at Gulfstream in Hallandale Beach, Fla. But the turf course is still drying out from heavy rain earlier this week.

The fifth race, with scheduled post of 2:56 p.m. will start the Rainbow 6. There will  be  a new pool on the 20 cents per  combination-only bet.

On Saturday, Gulfstream had a mandatory payout on the Rainbow 6.

Details are in a story posted early this morning with the  title |"GP Mandatory Rainbow 6 Pays Out $567.80."

This link to the Equibase Web site has the Gulfstream scratches for Sunday. It has click-ons for handicapping materials.  Some is free. Some, including Past Performances, is at cost. The link will update for scratches and other changes.

On Friday. Gulfstream moved all three of its scheduled turf races to dirt.

In the prior 44 days if its spring/summer meet, Gulfstream moved  just one race  off the turf. That took place during a very dry spring in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale area.

On Saturday, Gulfstream kept just one of five scheduled-for turf races on that surface.

That was the $75,000 Not Surprising Stakes, at one mile for 3-year-olds.

Fighting Force, at 6-1 won by 3 1/4 lengths over 23-1shot Perfect Silent Cat.

Samy Camacho rode Fighting Force for trainer Jeff Engler. The winning time was 1:38.18 on the turf listed as yielding.
