Gulfstream Park: Mandatory Payout In Saturday’s Rainbow 6; Jackpot Exceeds $1 Million

A mandatory payout of the Rainbow 6 jackpot pool is scheduled for Saturday’s 12-race program at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla., that will also feature the $100,000 Gulfstream Park Sprint (G3) and the $100,000 Gulfstream Park Turf Sprint (G3).

The Rainbow 6 went unsolved for the 13th straight racing day Friday, when multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $1,711.24.

At the start of Rainbow 6 wagering on Saturday there will be a carryover jackpot pool of $1,048,970.38. There will also be a Super Hi-5 carryover to begin the day of $4,650.73.

The jackpot pool 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 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 whole pool is paid out to the bettor or bettors holding tickets with the most winners in the six-race sequence.

The Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 7-12, kicked off by a mile maiden special weight race on turf that drew a full field of 3-year-olds, including Todd Pletcher-trained Golden Whim, a debuting son of Medaglia d’Oro who was a $1.5 million yearling purchase. Well-bred colts trained by Chad Brown, Christophe Clement, Rusty Arnold and Kent Sweezey will also be making their respective debuts in a most challenging Race 7.

Pletcher-trained Black Magic Woman, a dominating 3 ¾-length maiden winner last time out, makes her return in Race 8, a mile optional claiming allowance for older fillies and mares. Dale Romans-trained Funnybet, who finished his 2020 campaign with three straight victories at Keeneland and Churchill Downs, is slated to make her 2021 debut.

Race 9, a mile turf race with a full field of $10,000 claimers, could well be a ‘spread’ race for many Rainbow 6 bettors.

Chad Brown-trained Structor figures to be tested by a group of battle-tested rivals in Race 10, a mile turf race for older horses. The 4-year-old son of Palace Malice has been idle since winning his third straight race in the 2019 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (G1) at Santa Anita.

Multiple graded-stakes winner Mischevious Alex will be a popular “single” in Race 11, the $100,000 Gulfstream Park Sprint (G3), a six-furlong dash for 4-year-olds and up. The Saffie Joseph Jr.-trained son of Into Mischief is coming off an eye-catching optional claiming allowance win off a five-month layoff.

The Rainbow 6 sequence will be closed out with a mile maiden special weight race on turf for 3-year-old maidens in Race 12.  Bill Mott-trained Floriform, a son of Into Mischief who was beaten by just a half-length in his 2021 debut, figures to garner a lot of support from Rainbow 6 bettors in a race that includes several well-connected first-time starters.

The Rainbow 6 will be preceded by the $100,000 Gulfstream Park Turf Sprint (G3) in Race 6. Rusty Arnold-trained Leinster is slated to make his first start since finishing a close third in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint (G1`) at Keeneland. The 6-year-old son of Majestic Warrior had won the Shakertown (G2) and Woodford (G2) in his two prior starts.

WHO’S HOT:  Jose Ortiz rode three winners Friday afternoon. He won aboard Odramark ($5.80) in the first race, Sambacer ($5.80) in the fifth and Romp ($7) in the 10th and closing race.
