Gulfstream Park: Over $5.8 Million Wagered On Rainbow 6 On Mandatory Payout Day

There were multiple winning tickets in Saturday’s mandatory payout of the Rainbow 6 at Gulfstream Park with each ticket worth $17,215.86.

There was a carryover pool of $1,048,970.38 in the Rainbow 6, and $5,831,816 of new money wagered into the pool Saturday.

The sequence started off with a bang when 30-1 longshot Boreas won Gulfstream’s seventh race, a maiden special weight event on a mile turf course and returned $62.80.

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.

There will be a guaranteed pool of $200,000 in Sunday’s Rainbow 6, which includes three turf races. The sequence begins with the sixth race, a maiden special event at a mile for 4-year-olds and up. Bold Agenda, a son of Candy Ride from the Todd Pletcher stable, is 9-5 in the morning-line off a third-place finish here Jan. 15 at a mile. Winter Pool, a son of Curlin, debuts for the barn of Chad Brown and is 5-2.

The 10th race, an optional allowance claimer at 1 1/16 mile on the turf, is a wide-open affair with a dozen fillies and mares. The Brown barn sends out Linny Kate, a daughter of Tonalist making her first start in eight months. Brendan Walsh sends out two including Godolphin LLC’s Lake Lucerne, making her U.S. debut. The final leg of the sequence is a maiden special weight event for 3-year-old fillies on the turf at 1 1/16 mile. It’s another competitive event with debut runners from the barns of Shug McGaughey, Christophe Clement and Brown, and 4-1 favorite Champagne Ivy for trainer Saffie Joseph Jr., and A Thing of Beauty for Pletcher.

NOTES: Calumet Farm’s Flying Scotsman went gate-to-wire to win Saturday’s 10th race, a $53,000 allowance optional claimer. A 5-year-old son of English Channel entering the race off a fifth-place finish in the Tropical Turf (G3), Flying Scotsman and Corey Lanerie covered the mile turf course in 1:32.83 and returned $33.60. Structor, making his first start since winning the 2019 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (G1), finished in a dead heat for fourth.
