Sunday, September 27, 2020
    HALLANDALE BEACH - A mandatory payout on closing day of the Spring/Summer Meet at Gulfstream Park yielded multiple payoffs of $218,767.

    The multi-race wager had gone unsolved for 15 days heading into today's mandatory payout. A carryover pool of $745,396.50 helped generate a Rainbow 6 handle of $3,922,471. The Late Pick-5 produced a $21,513 payoff.

    Apprentice-on-the-rise Alberto Burgos finished up the Spring/Summer Meet with an impressive four-win day, taking both ends of the early double with Inedatequila ($9.80) and Grace’s Drama ($5.80). He added victories aboard Vuyelwa ($13) in Race 4 and Yodel E. A. Who ($5.40) in Race 10.

    Edgard Zayas successfully defended his Spring/Summer Meet jockey title with 137 wins, 10 more than runner-up Miguel Vasquez. Zayas also was first in purses-won with more than $4.15 million.

    Saffie Joseph Jr. led the trainers with 59 victories, while Ralph Nicks topped all trainers with more than $1.5 in purses-won. Stonehedge Farm was tops among owners with 24 wins and $1,190,720 in purses.

    South Florida racing action will move to Gulfstream West on Saturday, for the Fall Turf Festival Meet, which will offer 41 programs through Nov. 26. Racing will be conducted five days a week on a Wednesday-through-Sunday schedule with one exception.  A special Columbus Day program will be conducted on Monday, Oct. 12 instead of Wednesday, Oct. 14.

    Due to Covid-19 protocols, racing will be conducted without spectators. Owners will be allowed to attend the races only on the days their horses are scheduled to run. 

    Live racing will return to Gulfstream Park for the 2020-2021 Championship Meet in December.
