Gulfstream Park: Mandatory Payout Spurs $5.3 Million Into Rainbow 6 Pool

Multiple winning tickets on Gulfstream Park’s mandatory payout of the 20-cent Rainbow 6 Saturday were each worth $14,626.86.

There was $5,353.843 of new money bet into the pool at the Hallandale Beach, Fla., track.

The Rainbow 6 begins anew Sunday with a $100,000 guaranteed pool beginning with the sixth race, an allowance optional claiming event at 1 1/16 miles on the turf featuring a field of six. The first race in the sequence is followed by a maiden special weight event at five furlongs on the turf for 3-year-old fillies. There were four turf races in Sunday’s Rainbow 6.

There will also be a Super Hi-5 carryover Sunday of $8,740.12.

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.

WHO’S HOT: Jockey Tyler Gaffalione had three winners on the afternoon, capping the day with his victory aboard Ride a Comet in the Tropical Park (G3).  Gaffalione also won the third race with Shadwell Stable’s first-time starter, Lamutanaatty, a 3-year-old son of Into Mischief, and the allowance optional claimer fourth race with Bluegrass Parkway…Trainer Bill Mott had a pair of 3-year-olds break their maidens Saturday. Frank Fletcher Racing Operations, Inc.’s Candy Man Rocket, a son of Candy Ride making his second start, ran away from eight others to win over six furlongs by 9 ¼ lengths in 1:11.28. Donald Dizney’s homebred Simovitch won going a mile by 3 ½ lengths while covering the distance in 1:39.04.
