Gulfstream Park Rainbow 6 Carryover Jackpot Hits $420,397

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot for Friday’s 10-race program at Gulfstream Park climbed to $420,396.90 Thursday when the popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the 10th consecutive racing day.

Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $11,169.46.

The carryover jackpot 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 $2,058.12 heading into Friday’s program.

First-race post time for Friday’s card is set for 1:10 p.m.

Pletcher-Trained 3YO Looked ‘Legit’ in Sharp Debut
Todd Pletcher-trained Legit overcame adversity to score an impressive debut victory in Thursday’s ninth race at Gulfstream Park.

The 3-year-old son of Curlin, who was purchased by Repole Stable for $125,000 at the 2016 Keeneland September sale, got away somewhat slowly from his rail post position at the start of the one-turn mile maiden special weight race. The long-striding colt leveled off midway through the backstretch as the even-money favorite Crafty Jack set the pace pressed by Our Honor, a first-time starter trained by Chad Brown. Legit was taken to the outside by jockey Tyler Gaffalione and the Kentucky-bred colt made a sweeping move on the turn to take the lead at the top of the stretch before drawing off to an open-lengths score.

“He’s a horse who has impressed us with his training. We were just looking for the correct distance to start him off with. We felt like a mile was OK because he’s always shown us that he finishes well and gallops out strongly,” Pletcher said. “I was a little concerned with drawing the one-hole, that’s a disadvantage in a one-turn mile, especially for a first-time starter. He broke so-so and got shuffled around a little bit. Like a lot of first-timers, it took him a little while to get used to the kick-back. Once Tyler was able to get him out in the clear and got his legs under him, I thought he was impressive.”

Legit, whose career was delayed by “baby issues,” ran a mile in 1:36.07 as the 8-5 second choice. Our Honor, a son of Union Rags ridden by Edgard Zayas. Crafty Jak held on for third under Nik Juarez.
