$2.5 Million Bet Into Gulfstream Park Rainbow 6 On Mandatory Payout Day

There were 10,271 winning tickets in Saturday’s mandatory payout of the Rainbow 6 at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla. Each ticket was worth $228.40.

The 20-cent Rainbow 6, which included four stakes races including the $200,000 Affirmed and $200,000 Susan’s Girl divisions of the FTBOA Florida Sire Stakes, had a carryover of $349,328. There was $2.495 million of new money bet into the Rainbow 6 Saturday.

The Rainbow 6 began anew Sunday with a $75,000 guaranteed pool. The sequence began with the sixth race, the $60,000 Escena for fillies and mares going a mile on the main track. Crumb Bun, a winner of two of her last three, is the 5-2 morning-line favorite. Reluctant Bride, fourth in the Davona Dale (G2) during the Championship Meet, enters the Escena off a victory July 23 after a five-month layoff.

The seventh race Sunday is a mile maiden special weight event for 2-year-old fillies. The ninth and 11th races are five furlong events also scheduled on the turf.

The Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot is usually only paid out when there is a single unique ticket sold with all six winners. On days when there is no unique ticket, 70 percent of that day’s pool usually goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners, while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool. However, on mandatory-payout days, the entire pool is paid out to the bettor or bettors with the most winners in the six-race sequence.

Spanish Loveaffair, Hot Blooded Become Stakes Winners
While the second leg of the FTBOA Florida Sire Stakes was the highlight, there were two other stakes run Saturday at Gulfstream.

Spanish Loveaffair, a 2-year-old bay filly by Karakontie trained by Mark Casse, remained undefeated in two starts after winning the $75,000 Sharp Susan by 1 1/4 lengths over Director’s Cut. Ridden by Victor Lebron, Spanish Loveaffair, who broke her maiden by 11 lengths on the turf July 23, covered a firm mile turf course in 1:35.03. She races for Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners, Michael Hernon and Gary Barber.

“We’re very excited for her future and, hopefully, she can continue to keep progressing,” said Casse’s assistant trainer Nick Tomlinson. “Victor gave her a great ride.”

In the $75,000 Proud Man, Hot Blooded drove away from Boca Boy down the stretch to win by 2 1/4 lengths while covering the mile turf course in 1:36.68. Trained by Carlos David and ridden by Emisael Jaramillo, Hot Blooded broke his maiden July 24 on the main track at seven furlongs.
