Rain limited Friday action at Gulfstream to simulcasting after live racing was cancelled midway through the day's card.
Racing was cancelled midway through Friday's 10-race program at Gulfstream Park when heavy rains and an impending severe lightning storm just to the North of the Hallandale Beach oval threatened the safety of horses, jockeys and patrons.

"Due to the inclement weather and our concern for the safety of the patrons, horses and riders, we decided to cancel the balance of the program," said track president and general manager Scott Savin shortly after the sixth race of the afternoon.

"Canceling the balance of the racing program also gives us the ability to make sure we can make the track safe and ready for tomorrow," Savin added.

Wagers on Friday's Pick 6 were refunded.
