Columbus Day Program At Gulfstream Park West Features $175,000 Rainbow 6 Jackpot Guarantee

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $175,000 on Monday’s special Columbus Day card at Gulfstream Park West near Miami, Fla.

The popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the sixth straight racing day of the Fall Turf Festival Meet Sunday, when multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $1,314.14.

The carryover jackpot is 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 goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners, while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool.

There will also be a Super Hi-5 carryover of $5,285.56 heading into Monday’s card.

Monday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 4-9 on a program that features a pair of strong maiden special weight races.

In Race 1, several well-bred, well-connected 2-year-olds are scheduled to run five furlongs on turf, including first-time starters trained by Todd Pletcher and Saffie Joseph Jr. The Pletcher-trained Speight is a son of Speightstown.  The Joseph-trained Under the Couvers is a son of Vancouver. Kelsey Danner-trained Doctor K, a son of Speightster, is scheduled to make his second career start, after finishing second behind impressive debut winner Drain the Clock in a Sept. 12 off-the-turf maiden test.

n Race 3, Pletcher-trained Aqaareb is set to debut in a mile maiden special weight race on turf. The Shadwell Farm homebred is a son of Bernardini.

In Sunday’s feature race, a mile optional claiming allowance for fillies and mares, Joseph-trained Gibberish withstood race-long pressure while setting the pace and fought back to prevail by a nose over Bella Ciao. The 3-year-old daughter of Lea, who is owned by e Five Racing Thoroughbreds, collected her second straight optional claiming allowance while winning around two turns for the first time.

Defending Gulfstream Park West titlist Edgard Zayas guided Gibberish ($4.20) to her Race 3 victory before scoring aboard Arrivederia ($6.80) in Race 5 and Unpublished ($8.80) in Race 7.
