Gulfstream Park: Mandatory Payout On Saturday – Nicoletti Likes Fawkes, Sutherland, And Riveting Spirit

A mandatory payout of the 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool is set for Saturday’s program at Gulfstream Park, highlighting the final weekend of the inaugural Fall Meet.

The Rainbow 6 has gone unsolved for the 21 racing days in a row following a $461,035.47 jackpot payoff Oct. 9.

The Rainbow 6 jackpot pool stood at $450,473.78 entering betting on Saturday, when the pool is expected to grow over $3 million.

Saturday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 5-10, including four races on the Tapeta all-weather course and two on the main track.

Gulfstream host and analyst Ron Nicoletti says to use a couple 6-1 shots, both ridden by Chantal Sutherland, and not to forget Riveting Spirit in the final leg.

A ‘spread’ race kicks of the sequence in Race 5, a mile-and-70-yard route for $20,000 claiming fillies and mares on Tapeta.

A full field of 12 juvenile fillies has been entered in Race 6, a six-furlong sprint at six furlongs for $50,000 maiden claimers, including eight first-time starters. Joe Orseno-trained Keen Kingdom, a daughter of Animal Kingdom, is a debuting half-sister to a Grade 2 stakes winner on turf. Saffie Joseph Jr.-trained Illogical Love, a daughter of Classic Empire, is also scheduled to debut.

A well-balanced field of fillies and mares has been assembled for Race 7, a 1 1/16-mile route over the all-weather track for $20,000 claimers. Gerald Brooks-trained Midnight Bella, a two-time winner over Presque Isle’s Tapeta course in September; Little Bit Good, who makes her first start for dangerous off-the-claimer trainer Gilberto Zerpa; Anthony Margotta Jr.-trained Diamond Play, who hasn’t been off the board in her last seven starts; and Elizabeth Dobles-trained Pearlescent, who rolled to a nine-length win in her Tapeta debut against weaker last time out; all figured to be well represented on many handicappers’ tickets.

Race 8, a mile event for $6250 claimers on the main track, will likely provide a stern handicapping test for Rainbow 6 bettors. Peter Walder-trained Mr. Tito’s, who won first off the claim at the same level last time out; Herbert Miller-trained Doctor D J, who was just a neck behind Mr. Tito’s; and Mark Casse-trained Kramden, dropping down while switching to dirt, over which he has finished first and second in three outings; figure to be included on many tickets.

David Fawkes-trained Riveting Spirit will seek a repeat victory in the Race 9 feature, a 1 1/16-mile starter optional claiming allowance for fillies and mares on Tapeta. Riveting Spirit, who has a win and a second-place finish on Tapeta, is a half-sister to multiple-stakes winner Noble Drama. The 4-year-old Florida-bred filly is out of Queen Drama, a half-sister to Big Drama, the Eclipse Award-winning sprint champion, and a full sister to Sheer Drama, a multiple Grade 1-stakes winner. Carlos David-trained Centsless Drama, an ultra-consistent daughter of Big Drama; and Ralph Nicks-trained Katz a Dream, who beat slightly weaker while romping to victory in her Tapeta debut; are rated first and second, respectively, in the morning-line.

Jane Cibelli-trained Flowmotion, a hard-hitting turf veteran with back success on Tapeta, is among the strongest contenders in Race 10. The mile-and-70-yard route on Tapeta for $12,500 claimers may well be viewed as another ‘spread’ race by bettors looking for multiple chances should they be alive into the last race.

First-race post time for Saturday’s 10-race program is set for 12:30 p.m.

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.

Gulfstream’s inaugural Fall Meet will conclude on Sunday.

The 2021-2022 Championship Meet is scheduled to get underway Friday, Dec. 3.
