Hallendale Players

Posted by on 12/7/2015 8:54:03 PM

The town is Hallendale; the emporium is Gulfstream Park and fans in Florida and from around the world can look forward to months of action as this meet has just opened.

Gulfstream has never been afraid to take chances with their product rather than staying with the status quo and they are offering a couple of new betting options for this meet.

The track will present the Rolling $1 Super Hi-5, which requires bettor to select in exact order the first 5 finishers in a race. It will be offered on every event.

In looking to give the little guy a chance at glory, Gulfstream will again offer the 20-cent Rainbow 6 on the last 6 races each day. It will be paid out when there is a single unique ticket sold with the half-dozen winners. When that doesn’t happen, 70% of the pool will be paid to the best prognosticators and 30% will carry over.

As far as trainers are concerned for this meeting, there is life, death and Todd Pletcher when it comes to Gulfstream Park.

He has won title after title at this venue and will again be loaded for bear and as all successful trainers know, you have to have a game plan and this conditioner does. Pletcher: “For us, it’s kind of the time of the year when the 3-year-olds get revved up. It’s a big part of our program.

Gulfstream has a special place in Pletcher’s heart too as he saddled his first winner then in 1996. And he has won the Florida Derby the last 2 seasons.

Pletcher does it with numbers as he saddled a lot of horses during Gulfstream but there are some smallish barns that point to this meet and they succeed.

Kirk Ziadie saddled 55 runners for this meet last year and 21 greeted him in the winner’s circle for a juicy 38% hit rate.

Larry Piloti was as good as gold in this meet last year. He saddled 12 winners but he only sent out 28 to the post to record at a 43% clip.

Wesley Ward is always good with young horses and he hit at 29% last year and expect Chad Brown to be more prominent. Last season he saddled 24 runners for this stand and 7 won.

They say good things come in small packages and it’s true with small stables. Mike Tomlinson watched 4 of his 14 starters win, William Hefner watched 3 of his 6 starters win and Bill Tharrenos won with a third of his 15 starters.

Just like in life, people excel in certain categories and there are some very good turf trainers at Gulfstream. Jane Cibelli cashed with 18 of her 78 turf runners last season. Mike Maker led the league with turf winners and Phil Gleaves only send out 10 starters on grass but 4 cashed.

As far as post position is concerned, the inside was very good last season both sprinting and in distance races. Three of the best distance posts were the 3 inside slots and sprinting, anything outside of post 4 going short and runners will be bucking a trend.
