Gulfstream Park Selections by John M. Gaver III: Friday, January 5, 2018
The first weekend of 2018 commences at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla. on Friday, January 5 with a 10-race program on tap. The featured tenth race on the card is a $16,000 optional claiming/entry-level allowance heat for Florida-bred four-year-olds and upward going seven and a half-furlongs on the turf.
Additionally, the program has an eye-catching $1,004,785 carryover in the 20-cent Rainbow 6 Jackpot (races 5-10).
The Green Sheet gave out four winners on Thursday’s 10-race program at Gulfstream and–on the day–had a positive 12 percent return on investment (ROI*), or a flat-bet profit of 24 cents for each two dollars wagered on its top selections.
25 days into the Championship Meet in Hallandale Beach, The Sheet is hitting at a 30 percent strike rate; its top selections have finished in the money 58 percent of the time.
