Gulfstream’s Rainbow 6 Pool Guaranteed At $450,000 For Saturday’s Holy Bull Card

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $450,000 on Saturday’s Holy Bull Day card at Gulfstream Park.

The popular multi-race wager went unsolved Friday for the third racing day following Sunday’s mandatory payout. Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $205.60.

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.

First-race post for Saturday’s 12-race program is set for 11:45 a.m.

Saturday’s six-race sequence will span Races 7-12, featuring the $200,000 Holy Bull (G3) in Race 11 on a program offering four other graded stakes.

The Holy Bull, the first graded-stakes on the Road to the Curlin Florida Derby presented by Hill ‘n Dale at Xalapa, attracted a deep field of exciting Triple Crown prospects, including Shug McGaughey-trained Greatest Honour, the 5-2 morning line favorite coming off a strong maiden score at the 1 1/.16-mile distance; the Pletcher-trained impressive debut winners Prime Factor and Amount; and Rodolphe Brisset-trained Tarantino, a son of Tapit, who is a nose away from being undefeated in three starts on turf.

The Rainbow 6 sequence kicks off with a 1 1/16-mile maiden special weight race for 3-year-olds on turf in Race 7, a likely ‘spread’ race featuring debuters trained by Todd Pletcher, Chad Brown, Kenny McPeek, Bill Mott and Barclay Tagg. A starter allowance at one mile on turf for older horses follows in Race 8.

The $100,000 Forward Gal (G3), a seven-furlong sprint for 3-year-old fillies, will feature the return of sparkling debut winner Zaajel in Race 9. The Pletcher-trained daughter of Street Sense, who pulled away by 7 ¼ lengths at seven furlongs, is rated at 7-5 in the morning line.

Pletcher will also be well-represented in the $100,000 Sweetest Chant (G3), a mile turf race for 3-year-old fillies carded as Race 10. Con Lima has won her last two starts for the 16-time Championship Meet titlist, including a 3 ¼-length victory in the Jan. 1 Ginger Brew.

The Holy Bull will be followed by a mile turf race for $35,000 claimers, 4 years old and up, in Race 12.

The $100,000 Kitten’s Joy (G3) and the $100,000 Claiborne Farm Swale (G3) are scheduled earlier on the program. Calumet Farm’s Kentucky Pharoah, a three-length winner in the Dania Beach last time out, headlines the Kitten’s Joy, a 1 1/16-mile turf stakes for 3-year-olds carded as Race 4. Slam Dunk Racing and Madaket Stables LLC’s Drain the Clock and Claiborne Farm and Jump Sucker Stable’s By George, an impressive debut winner at Aqueduct last time out, are expected to vie for favoritism for the Swale, a seven-furlong sprint for 3-year-olds carded as Race 6.
