Gulfstream Puts $500,000 Guarantee On Friday’s Rainbow 6 Jackpot

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool Friday at Gulfstream Park will be guaranteed at $500,000 for an 11-race program that begins at 1 p.m.

Three horses were live to take down the popular multi-race wager heading into Thursday’s 10th race finale, won by 6-5 favorite Cookie Cove ($4.60), giving jockey Irad Ortiz Jr. his second win of the day. Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $10,140.72.

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.

Friday’s Rainbow 6 covers Races 6-11 and includes the $75,000 Hollywood Wildcat for 3-year-old fillies in Race 10, featuring multiple graded-stakes winners Tonalist‘s Shape and Cheermeister and the undefeated Up in Smoke.

There will also be a carryover of $11.204.83 in the $1 Super Hi-5 for Friday’s opener.

Dayoutoftheoffice Registers Front-Running Maiden Win Thursday
Dayoutoftheoffice, an imposing juvenile daughter of 2007 Grade 1-winning 2-year-old Into Mischief making her career debut, ran to her looks with a dominant 4 ¾-length triumph in Thursday’s second race at Gulfstream Park.

With Dylan Davis aboard for trainer Tim Hamm, Dayoutoftheoffice ($8.80) never trailed in the $65,000 maiden special weight event for 2-year-old fillies, where she was sent off the narrow fourth choice in a field of seven. The winning time for 4 ½ furlongs was 52.39 seconds over a fast main track.

“She’s a very nice filly,” Hamm said. “She’s probably going to want to go further, but it’s great to get the maiden out of the way today.”

Dayoutoftheoffice emerged with the lead after a brief tussle with Acting Lucky on her hip and Rock With Robin to their outside, going the opening quarter-mile in 21.89 seconds. Davis began to gain separation on the turn, going a half in 45.96, and edged clear through the stretch. A green Acting Lucky finished second, with 15-1 long shot Dannyhill third.

“She’s done great all winter,” Hamm said. “She’s a big filly, and my big concern was getting her out of the gate. Once she got her head out of there in good order, I thought we were in pretty good shape.”

A winner of nearly 1,300 career races and one of Ohio’s most successful trainers, Hamm operates the Starting Point Training Center in Ocala. As Blazing Meadows Farm, he co-owns Dayoutoftheoffice – out of the Indian Charlie mare Gottahaveadream – with breeder Anthony Manganaro’s Siena Farm.

“She’s one that showed promise from the start,” Hamm said. “We have 73 2-year-olds at our training center in Ocala, and she’s one of the fillies that really stood out. She’s going to be all right.”

Thursday’s maiden race also featured the Northern Hemisphere debut of offspring from freshmen sires Mshawish (Dannyhill, 3rd), Firing Line (Dancing in Fire, 4th) and Vancouver (Rock With Robin, placed 6th).

Hamm also won with his other starter Thursday, undefeated gelding Sea Lover ($5.80), who ran his record to 3-0 in Race 3, a five-furlong claiming turf sprint for 3-year-olds. Hamm owned and trained Ohio-bred sprinter Too Much Bling before selling a majority interest to Stonerside Stable. Too Much Bling would go on to win three graded-stakes for Hall of Fame trainer bob Baffert.

Notes: In addition to Ortiz, who also scored on Captain Duke ($8) in Race 4, jockey Hector Berrios notched back-to-back victories with long shots Fifth Title ($14.80) in Race 5 and Pechanga ($55.80) in Race 6. Luis Saez also won twice – aboard El Scorcho ($6) in Race 1 and Don’t Get Khozy ($6) in Race 8 – as did Miguel Vasquez on Maserati Man ($4.40) in Race 7 and multiple stakes-placed Heiressall ($13) in featured Race 9, a six-furlong optional claiming allowance for older females.
