Park has a 12-race card Saturday, November 18th. It's the first 12 race
day for Gulfstream since mid-June. Five dirt and 7 All-weather track
races are planned.
First post is at 12:10
PM in Hallandale Beach, Fla. No stakes races are planned. The current
Sunshine Meet will wind down next weekend, and the Winter meet
(Champion's Meet) will commence December 1st. Live racing will add
Thursday's to the schedule, for a 4-day race week. The Winter meet is
the most active, as many tracks ship horses to Gulfstream and Tampa Bay
Down's for the colder-weather months. Tampa Bay's racing commences Nov.
Race 7 kicks off the Rainbow 6 wager at about 2:55 PM with a carryover Saturday of $14,585. Gulfstream is placing a $50,000 gross pool guarantee on this wager if the betting does not reach that amount today.
On Friday, the rainbow wager paid $846.74 to about 16 winners.
Just 3 favorites won on the day, all in the last 6 races. The long-odds win was by Soy Una Dama in race 7 at 15:1.
With the ending of this meet, and the recent Jackpot payout of the Rainbow 6, expect the wagering to subside a bit. Gulfstream will announce a mandatory payout near the end of this meet, most likely on Saturday or Sunday, Nov. 25-26.
The winning Rainbow 6 program #'s Friday were: 2-8-1/3-2-2-1 (6 of 6 paid)
Total all-sources track handle was $2.97 million Friday.
