Gulfstream Park's Thursday Racing

Gulfstream Park will run 10 races today, with a first post time of 12:30 PM.

With few exeptions, the Championship meet will race 5 days a week (Wednesday through Sunday) until the meet ends in early April. One turf race is planned in race 9; the rest will be on the dirt or Tapeta all-weather surface.

In Wednesday's racing action, 49 starters competed in the last 6 races (Rainbow-6), and 42 winners of that wager each collected $1,451.06.

The sole carryover today is on the Rainbow 6 at $142,834 as it enters day 6 of this wager. The last jackpot payout was on November 20th. Track all-sources handle was $5.17 million, a robust number for a weekday. We'll see how that shakes out as this Championship meet continues.

Race 5 kicks off the Rainbow 6 sequence, slated to start at approximately 2:28 PM. 

Starting this meet, Gulfstream's horses now race on three surfaces: Dirt, Turf, and Tapeta - the artificial ALL WEATHER TRACK (AWT). Races 8 and 9 today will run on the AWT.
