Gulfstream Park: Irad Ortiz Jr. On Record Pace, Rainbow 6 Jackpot Has $250,000 Guarantee

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $250,000 Thursday at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla.

The popular multi-race wager went unsolved Wednesday for the first racing day since Sunday’s mandatory payout. Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $51.34 Wednesday.

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.

There will also be a Super Hi-5 carryover of $4806.94 into the first race, a maiden claimer for fillies at six furlongs.

Hurricane Bertie (G3) Rescheduled to March 20
The $100,000 Hurricane Bertie (G3), for fillies and mares at 6 ½ furlongs originally scheduled for Saturday, will now be run Saturday, March 20 after it failed to fill.

“The Hurricane Bertie is an important race on the Gulfstream Park schedule,” said Gulfstream’s Vice President of Racing Mike Lakow. “We’re going to do our best to make it go next Saturday.”

WHO’S HOT:  Defending two-time Championship Meet titlist Irad Ortiz Jr. added four more victories to his meet-leading total Wednesday. Ortiz, who had ridden 11 winners on the previous three programs at Gulfstream, kicked off Wednesday’s program with victories aboard Breakthrough ($2.60) in Race 1, Bourbon Thunder ($6.60) in Race 2 and Isadorable Aida ($7) in Race 3 before scoring aboard Field Day ($) in Race 6 and Coworth Park ($10.60) in Race 7.

Ortiz has ridden 126 winners during the Championship Meet, just 11 wins behind the record of 137, set by Luis Saez during the 2017-2018 meet.
