Chart of the Week: The 1948 Gulfstream Park Handicap

On January 15, 1948, the 6-year-old mare Rampart (Trace Call) defeated 7-year-old gelding Armed (Bull Lea) by a head to take the Gulfstream Park Handicap (10f) at Gulfstream Park. Going off at 26-1, the front running Rampart would carry a meager 108 pounds to defending Horse of the Year (and 3-20 favorite) Armed’s 130 pounds.
