Actor Matt Damon on Hand for Big Pick 6
Wednesday’s $140,247 Pick 6 carryover didn’t just bring out South Florida’s big bettors to Gulfstream Park, it brought out a Hollywood star as Academy Award-winning actor Matt Damon dropped in to take a swing at the big payday.
The 34-year-old star of “Good Will Hunting,” “Ocean’s Eleven,” and “The Bourne Supremacy” was making his second trip to Gulfstream along with three friends.
“I don’t go too much unless I have a friend who can show me what’s going on,” said Damon. “Today we’re here for the Pick 6 and for a laugh and a good time.”
Damon said he’s relaxing in Miami while between acting projects and will be getting back to work soon. He also promised to make a return to the Hallandale Beach track, which is in the midst of a major renovation.
“The place is beautiful,” he said. “I really want to see what the new structure looks like when it’s finished.”
