– Live racing returns to Gulfstream Park with an eight-race program Thursday and a $150,000 guaranteed pool in the 20-cent Rainbow 6.
First race post time is 12:50 p.m. The Rainbow 6, which will include two turf races, will begin at approximately 1:54 p.m. with the third race, a $6,250 claiming event at 5 ½ furlongs with a 9-5 morning-line favorite in Beeboo, a 3-year-old gelding trained by Gilberto Zerpa who just broke his maiden for $12,500. Malibu Mandate (5-2) enters the race off a second-place finish against similar company. Paco Lopez is aboard. Zerpa will also saddle Thorover.
The fourth race, an optional allowance claimer at six furlongs has drawn the graded stakes-placed Admiral Lynch (5-2) making his first start since February. Gulfstream’s seventh race, a seven furlong allowance race for 3-year-old state-bred fillies, drew a competitive field of seven including Restofthestory, who makes her second start after finishing second by a neck in the $400,000 My Dear Girl division of the Florida Sire Stakes last fall. The daughter of Jess’s Dream finished fourth in her 2021 debut March 24 behind Mon Petit Chou, who came back to win May 14.
