GULFSTREAM: Pick-6 starting now!


The preliminaries are over and the main event, the Pick-6 with a $116,000 carryover, on deck beginning with the 5th race. The scratch reduced fields a good inducement to go after all that money sitting there for the past week or so.

The wet racetrack does not appear to be biased although hard to tell anything from the fourth race won by the 3-5 Prestidigitation in a common gallop. Little more than a workout for the winner who was in hand almost the entire race.  The third race proved just the opposite with Fiji Boy overcoming a terrible start to rally along the rail and outgame Arabian Peace. Both the third and fourth race winners were ridden by Jose Lezcano.
