Friday’s Rainbow 6 Pool Guaranteed At $1.5 Million, Mandatory Payout Sunday

 Gulfstream Park will offer a guaranteed jackpot pool of $1.5 million in the 20-cent Rainbow 6 when racing resumes with a 10-race program Friday, April 17.

First-race post time is 1 p.m.

The popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the ninth consecutive racing day Thursday, despite having two horses alive to take down the jackpot heading into the 11th race finale, won by Nick the Cardshark ($37). Tickets with all six winners each returned $68,999.28.

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.

Friday’s Rainbow 6 sequence begins in Race 5, a maiden claiming event for 3-year-old fillies going one mile on the grass where Starlight Racing’s Philly Special, with Luis Saez aboard for trainer Todd Pletcher, is the 9-5 program favorite in a field of 11.

Mihos and Tiz Mischief, horses that were briefly on the Triple Crown trail during their sophomore seasons, show up in Race 6, a second-level optional claimer for 4-year-olds and up sprinting seven furlongs on the main track. Mihos won the Mucho Macho Man and was fifth in the Holy Bull (G3) in 2019, running third in his seasonal debut March 26 off a six-month layoff.

Tiz Mischief ran third in the 2018 Holy Bull off a runner-up finish in the Kentucky Jockey Club (G2) to cap his juvenile campaign. Off the board in the Tampa Bay Derby (G2) and Blue Grass (G2), the 5-year-old was second in the Matt Winn (G3) later than year. Trained by Dale Romans, he is making his first start since last May.

The solid field of eight also includes 8-year-old gelding Royal Squeeze, a winner of 11 career races, nine at Gulfstream, four of those in stakes, making his first start since a fifth in the Sunshine Millions Sprint Jan. 18; 2019 Tom Fool (G3) winner Do Share, most recently eighth in the Gulfstream Park Mile (G2) Feb. 29; and 8-year-old Hy Riverside, whose multiple stakes wins include the 2019 Big Red and 2017 Sunshine Millions Classic.

Jades Gelly, racing first off the claim for trainer Wesley Ward, who lost her for a tag in her previous start; 2019 Schuylerville (G3) show finisher Shippy, making her first start for new trainer George Weaver since running fifth in the Spinaway (G1) Sept. 1; and impressive March 4 debut winner Notorious R B G top Race 8, a five-furlong turf sprint for 3-year-old fillies.

OXO Equine’s Fortin Hill, undefeated in two starts but unraced since June 2019, is the 9-5 morning line favorite in Race 9, a second-level optional claimer for 4-year-olds and up going six furlongs. Two horses exiting Gulfstream’s Feb. 17 Presidents Day starter stakes program – Yodel E.A. Who, second by a nose in the one-mile Rough and Ready, and Trust Buster winner Vinnie Van Go – are also entered.

There will also be a carryover of $36,716.45 in the $1 Super Hi-5 starting in Friday’s opener.

On Sunday, April 19, Gulfstream will have mandatory payouts in the Rainbow 6, 50-cent Late Pick 5 and Super Hi-5 wagers.
