Gulfstream Park: Sunday’s Rainbow 6 Has Mandatory Payout, $5 Million Pool Projected

A mandatory payout of the 20-cent Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot pool is scheduled for Sunday’s program at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla.

The carryover jackpot pool heading into Sunday’s Rainbow 6 wagering will be $873,676.33. The pool is expected to swell to approximately $5 million at the close of betting Sunday.

The popular multi-race wager went unsolved Saturday for the 10th straight racing day since a lucky bettor broke the jackpot for $712,824.06 Feb. 22. Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $487.16 Saturday.

Sunday’s Rainbow 6 sequence, which will span Races 6-11, kicked off by a wide-open $16,000 maiden claiming race with a full field of older fillies and mares. In Race 7, Free to Fly, who will seek her third-straight victory, figures to be a popular ‘single’ in the six-furlong $6,250 claiming race for older fillies and mares. Race 8, a five-furlong dash for $16,000 claiming fillies and mares on turf will likely pose a much sterner test for handicappers.

A 6 ½-furlong optional claiming allowance for older fillies and mares in Race 9 will kick of the second half of the Rainbow 6 sequence. Bimini, who was claiming out of a third-place finish behind Free to Fly last time out, will make her first start for solid off-the-claim trainer Gilberto Zerpa.

A full field of older horses will compete in Race 10, a five-furlong optional claiming allowance on turf. Brendan Walsh-trained Lontano and Wesley Ward-trained Zanno, both of whom are coming off victories against state-breds, will face open company in the same entry-level condition Sunday.

The Rainbow 6 sequence will be wrapped up by a six-furlong maiden special weight race for 3-year-olds featuring first-time starters trained by Chad Brown, Bill Mott, Brad Cox, Saffie Joseph Jr., and Ian Wilkes.

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: Jose Ortiz had the hat trick, winning two of Gulfstream’s three stakes races. Ortiz won aboard A Bit of Both ($8.80) in the Captiva Island and Farsighted ($12.20) in the The Any Limit. He also won Race 2 with Dream Friend ($4). Miguel Vasquez doubled aboard Stunning Princess ($8.80) in Race 1 and Easy Stride ($12.80) in Race 7. Paco Lopez doubled aboard Ournationonparade ($4.80) in Race 3 and Lavi ($4.80) in Race 5.
