The Green Sheet gave out five winners on Friday’s 10-race program at Gulfstream and touted three superfectas– including a $526 hit for a $1 wager in the sixth on the card–and doped out three trifectas, including a $331 score for a $1 wager in the day’s eighth race.

On the day, The Sheet had a positive 35 percent return on investment (ROI*), or a flat-bet profit of 70 cents for each two dollars wagered on its top selections.

10 days day into the 2017-18 Championship Meet in Hallandale Beach, The Sheet is hitting at a 28 percent strike rate; its top selections have finished in the money 65 percent of the time.
