Gulfstream Park: $1.1-Million Rainbow 6 Jackpot Guarantee Wednesday; Mandatory Payout On Florida Derby Day

Live racing returns to Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla., on Wednesday, March 24, with a 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool guarantee of $1.1 million.

Post time for the first of 10 races is 1:10 p.m.

The popular multi-race wager went unsolved Sunday for the 10th consecutive racing day since a March 6 mandatory payout. Multiple tickets with all six winners each returned $55,489.44.

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.

Wednesday’s Rainbow 6 begins in Race 5, a starter allowance for 4-year-olds and up sprinting five furlongs on the turf that drew a field of nine including last-out winners What’s Inside and Legal Deal as well as Earth, beaten a neck by What’s Inside March 3 at Gulfstream.

Gilded Lady takes a two-race win streak into Race 6, when seven older fillies will run six furlongs on the main track for a $16,000 tag. Race 7 is a starter allowance scheduled for 7 ½ furlongs on the grass led by Lookinlikeaqueen, beaten just a length when sixth at 48-1 in the Sunshine Filly & Mare Turf Jan. 16 and stakes-placed Jabuticaba.

Older horses will go 7 ½ furlongs on the turf in a Race 8 starter allowance that will see Mr. Tip run first off the claim for trainer Mike Maker in the 4-year-old gelding’s sixth start of the Championship Meet. Wednesday’s feature comes in Race 9, an entry-level allowance for Florida-bred 3-year-old fillies that marks the return of Restofthestory, making her first start since finishing second by a neck in the FSS My Dear Girl Sept. 26.

The Rainbow 6 wraps up in Race 10, a maiden claimer for 3-year-olds going a mile on the grass that drew an overflow field of 14 that has the offspring of four Triple Crown race winners including American Great, by 2015 Triple Crown champion American Pharoah.

Gulfstream Offering Mandatory Rainbow 6 Payout Derby Day March 27
In addition to a blockbuster program featuring 10 stakes, six graded, worth $1.85 million in purses led by the $750,000 Curlin Florida Derby (G1) presented by Hill ‘n’ Dale Farms at Xalapa, the Saturday, March 27, program at Gulfstream Park will feature a mandatory payout in the 20-cent Rainbow 6 wager.

In the Rainbow 6, 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.

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.

Gulfstream will bring down the curtain on its 2020-2021 Championship Meet Sunday, March 28.

Who’s Hot: Jockey Paco Lopez rode back-to-back winners Sunday, Hold the Applause ($5.40) in Race 3 and Lovelorn Lady ($3.80) in Race 4. Joe Bravo also doubled, with Bye Bye ($5.80) in Race 5 and Raspberry Ballet ($24.40) in Race 7. Fresh off a five-win Saturday, Junior Alvarado captured Sunday’s opener aboard Maker of an Empire ($5.40).
