Gulfstream Park: Saturday’s Rainbow 6 Jackpot Has $1-Million Guarantee

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $1 million Saturday at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla.

The popular multi-race wager went unsolved Friday for the eighth racing day in a row since a March 6 mandatory payout. Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $28,355.44 Friday.

The jackpot pool 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.

Saturday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 7-12, featuring three stakes. The $100,000 Hurricane Bertie, a 6 ½-furlong sprint for older fillies and mares, will headline the sequence in Race 10. John Kimmel-trained Pacific Gale, who captured the Inside Information (G2) last time out, is rated as the 2-1 morning-line favorite in a field of eight that includes Saffie Joseph Jr.-trained Sound Machine, Kent Sweezey-trained Saguaro Row, and Patrick Biancone-trained Reluctant Bride.

The $75,000 Melody of Colors, a five-furlong turf dash for older fillies and mares, will kick off the Rainbow 6 sequence in Race 7. Wesley Ward-trained Wink is set to make her 2021 debut after winning her first two starts and finishing second in a Groupe 3 stakes in France last year.

A mile maiden special weight race for 3-year-olds follows in Race 8. Todd Pletcher-trained Tallis, who made a strong middle move before tiring in a fourth-place finish in his recent debut, is rated as the 2-1 morning-line favorite in a field of nine. Race 9, a well-balanced optional claiming allowance for older horses at 1 1/16 miles on turf, may prove to be a ‘spread’ race for many handicappers.

The Hurricane Bertie, which will kick off the second half of the sequence in Race 10, will be followed by the $75,000 Texas Glitter, a five-furlong turf dash for older horses. Ward-trained Carimba, who won both of his starts easily last year at five furlongs on turf, is set to make his 2021 debut in the Race 10 stakes.

A 7 ½-furlong turf race for $16,000 claimers drew a full field of older horses for Race 12.
