Gulfstream Park Selections by John M. Gaver III: Friday, February 9, 2018
A beefy 12-race program kicks off a weekend of live Thoroughbred racing at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla. on Friday, February 9. The featured third race on the card is a $75,000 optional claiming/classified allowance affair for four-year-olds and upward going a seven-panel trip on the main track.
Additionally, the program has a lucrative $332,903 carryover in the 20-cent Rainbow 6 Jackpot (races 7-12).
The Green Sheet doped out five winners on Thursday’s 10-race program at Gulfstream and, on the day, had a positive 11 percent return on investment (ROI*), or a flat-bet profit of 22 cents for each two dollars wagered on its top selections on the card.
51 days into the Championship stand in Hallandale Beach, The Green Sheet is hitting at a 29 percent strike rate; its top selections have finished in the money 62 percent of the time.
