Gulfstream Park: Friday’s Rainbow 6 Jackpot Guaranteed At $1.1 Million; Mandatory Payout Rescheduled For Aug. 9

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $1.1 million Friday at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla.

The popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the 16th consecutive racing program Thursday, when multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $3,541.40

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.

A mandatory payout of the Rainbow 6 jackpot pool has been rescheduled from Sunday, Aug. 2, to Sunday, Aug. 9, due to forecasts that Tropical Storm Isaias may pose a weekend threat to Florida.

Friday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 5-10. Combination looms as a popular ‘single’ in Race 6, having won seven of his last eight starts. The 4-year-old son of Alternation, who is rated as the 9-5 morning-line favorite in the starter allowance, has been claimed out of his last five starts, most recently by owner Frank Calabrese and trainer Saffie Joseph Jr. for $25,000.

Races 8 and 10 will also be included in Friday’s Stronach 5 sequence. In Race 8, a mile turf race for $40,000 claimers, stakes winner Joseph-trained Captain D will seek to make amends for recent disappointment against better company.  Race 10, a $12.500 claiming race for non-winners of three races, will be contested at five furlongs on turf. The Stronach 5 will be kicked off by Race 6 at Laurel Park, followed by Race 8 at Gulfstream, Races 7 and 8 at Laurel and Race 10 at Gulfstream.
