Gulfstream Park: $650,000 Guarantee In Saturday’s Rainbow 6 Jackpot

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $650,000 for Saturday’s program at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla.

Saturday’s sequence spans Races 6-11 and includes maiden special weights on the turf. In Race 7 and 3-year-olds and up in Race 9. Trainer Christophe Clement has the program favorite in both heats, sophomore Vancouver colt Q F Seventy Five and 4-year-old City Zip colt Voodoo Zip.

The feature comes in Race 10, an entry-level optional claiming allowance for older females going a one-turn mile. Drawing Away Stable’s Don’t Get Khozy is favored at 8-5 on the morning line, winning twice at the distance in five starts during the recently concluded Championship Meet for trainer Antonio Sano.

There will also be a carryover of $2,063.56 in the $1 Super Hi-5 for Saturday’s opener.

Kelsey’s Cross, Sutherland Score In Friday Allowance
Sanford Bacon and trainer Patrick Biancone’s Grade 2-placed Kelsey’s Cross, exiting a string of 12 consecutive stakes, dropped into allowance company Friday and made her familiar late run down the center of the track to take the featured race at Gulfstream Park.

Ridden by Chantal Sutherland, her second win from eight starts at the spring-summer meet, Kelsey’s Cross ($11) won for the first time since capturing the Ginger Punch over the Gulfstream turf last June. The winning time in second-level event for older females was 1:33.23 over a firm course.

“It feels awesome. We gave her a little break before the start of the season and we just thought, ‘Wow, she’s going to have a great year,’” Biancone’s daughter and assistant, Andie Biancone, said. “She looks so good, and she just keeps getting so unlucky. She has all the talent but she’s never had the right trip. Chantal just gave her the most perfect ride and we couldn’t have asked for anything better.”

Shifty She, unraced since December 2019, and last out winner La Babia battled on the lead through testing fractions of 23.92 seconds for the quarter-mile, 46.47 for a half and 1:08.83 after six furlongs. Racing on the far outside, Kelsey’s Cross came with a steady run through the stretch to edge 8-5 favorite Lashara by a half-length. Hotsy Totsy was third.

“She really needs that good trip, but once she has that spot, she’s awesome,” Biancone said. “She’s all try.”

Kelsey’s Cross, 5, had been winless in six starts since the Ginger Punch, finishing off the board in her last three, including the Via Borghese and Sunshine Filly & Mare Turf during Gulfstream’s Championship Meet. Third in the 2020 Hillsborough (G2) and 2019 Wonder Again, she was sixth last out in the Endeavour (G3) Feb. 6 at Tampa Bay Downs.

Biancone said the connections will explore all options for Kelsey’s Cross’ next start.

“Who knows? There’s always some nice little stakes here this summer and we could always go up to New York. She loves New York,” she said. “We’ll see what Patrick has planned.”

Notes: Jockey Emisael Jaramillo rode back-to-back winners Friday with Tellington ($11) in Race 6 and Lauda Speed ($6.20) in Race 7 … Edwin Gonzalez also doubled, aboard Shikaka ($2.80) in Race 3 and Serenade a Kitten ($9.60) in Race 9.
