Gulfstream Park: Friday’s Rainbow 6 Jackpot Pool Guaranteed At $500,000

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $500,000 Friday at Gulfstream Park.

The popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the seventh racing day in a row Thursday, when tickets with all six winners were each worth $1,051.48

There will also be a Super Hi-5 Carryover Friday of $4,251.17.

A mandatory payout of the Rainbow 6 pool has been scheduled for Saturday, when the $200,000 Affirmed and the $200,000 Susan’s Girl will be included in the six-race sequence. The pool is expected to exceed $2 million if the Rainbow 6 continues to go unsolved Friday.

The Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot is usually 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 usually 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.

Friday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 4-9, which will feature a well-stocked $65,000 maiden special weight race for 2-year-old fillies in Race 5 with offspring of Uncle Mo, Cairo Prince, Speightster, Air Force Blue and Jess’s Dream. The sequence will conclude with a mile turf race for $40,000 maiden claimers in Race 9.

Race 9 will also be included in the sequence for Friday’s Stronach 5, the national wager with a $1 base and a $100,000 pool guarantee. Laurel Park’s Race 7 will kick off the sequence, followed by Gulfstream’s Race 9, Races 8 and 9 at Laurel, and Race 2 at Golden Gate Fields.

Apprentice Trejos Wins Three

Apprentice jockey Joseph Trejos rode three winners on Thursday’s card. Trejos, a native of Panama who rode his first winner in the U.S., in April, won aboard Strong Ending ($5.60) in the third, Palmgirl ($12.60) in the sixth and Twice as Magical ($6.80) in the seventh.
