Friday At Gulfstream: $550,000 Rainbow 6 Jackpot Guarantee, Farewell Race For Pay Any Price

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $550,000 Friday at Gulfstream Park.

The popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the seventh day of the Championship Meet Thursday, when multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $1,215.26.

The jackpot pool 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 $3,204.66 heading into Friday’s card.

Friday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 5-10, including the last race of multiple-stakes winner Pay Any Price’s career in Race 10, a five-furlong optional claiming allowance on turf. Due to age restrictions, the 10-year-old gelding will be ineligible to race at Gulfstream Park next year.

Pay Any Price has won 19 of 33 starts, including nine stakes. The son of Wildcat Heir set a North American and Gulfstream record for five-furlongs on turf while winning the 2017 Silks Run in 53.61 seconds.

Pay Any Price, who is rated as the 9-5 morning-line favorite in a full field of turf sprinters, most recently captured the Bob Umphrey Turf Sprint for the third year in a row.

In Race 9, a mile optional claiming allowance for 2-year-olds on turf, Tarantino is scheduled to make his first start for trainer Rodolphe Brisset. Formerly trained by Bob Baffert, the 2-year-old son of Pioneerof the Nile raced twice in California, including a debut triumph at Del Mar in September and a second-place finish in the Zuma Beach Stakes, in which he was beaten by a nose. Michael Maker-trained Risk Manager, an impressive debut winner at Keeneland, and George Weaver-trained Whatmakessammyrun, who finished second in the Atlantic Beach Stakes at Aqueduct in his last start, figure to provide plenty of competition.

Who’s Hot: Joe Bravo doubled on Thursday’s program, scoring career wins 5,457 and 5,458 aboard Freeze Turkey ($5.20) in Race 3 and Star Swept ($17.80) in Race 5.

Tyler Gaffalione and Paco Lopez each rode two winners. Gaffalione rode back-to-back winners in Races 6 and 7, scoring aboard Royal Meghan ($7) and War Canoe ($5), respectively. Lopez scored back-to-back wins with Get Rewarded ($6) in Race 9 and All About Kathern ($9) in Race 10.

Trainer Kent Sweezey saddled a pair of winners, Markistan ($4.80) in Race 2 and Star Swept ($17.80) in Race 5.
