Happy New Year! Gulfstream Puts $900,000 Guarantee On Rainbow 6 Jackpot

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $900,000 on Friday’s New Year’s Day program at Gulfstream Park.

The popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the seventh racing day in a row Thursday, when multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $2,784.24.

There will also be a Super Hi-5 carryover of $7,107.47.

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.

Friday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 6-11, including the $75,000 Janus in Race 9, the $75,000 Cash Run in Race 10 and the $75,000 Abundantia in Race 11.

Imprimis, who’s stretch bid in the Nov. 7 Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint (G1) was dramatically shut off, is slated to return in the Janus, a five-furlong turf sprint for 4-year-olds and up. The Joe Orseno-trained 7-year-old is 4-for-4 over the Gulfstream turf course. The multiple graded stakes-winning son of Broken Vow has been installed as the 9-5 morning-line favorite over Extravagant Kid, the fourth-place finisher in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint who is rated at 2-1.

Undefeated Shea D Summer will face open company for the first time in the Cash Run, a mile stakes for 3-year-old fillies. The Carlos David-trained daughter of Summer Frost has won her only two starts, including the Juvenile Fillies at Gulfstream Park West, against Florida-bred fillies. Gladys, a full sister to Rachael Alexandra who broke her maiden last time out at Gulfstream Park West, will return in the Cash Run.

Jakarta, who captured the Claiming Crown Distaff Dash last time out, will seek her third victory in as many starts over the Gulfstream turf in the Abundantia, a five-furlong turf sprint for older fillies and mares.

WHO’S HOT:  Trainer Bill Mott and jockey Junior Alvarado teamed for back-to-back victories in Race 5 and 6. Miss Tapirado ($12.40), a 3-year-old daughter of Tapit who cost $1.3 million at auction, captured her turf debut in Race 5, a mile maiden special weight race for fillies and mares. Sir Ollie ($13.40), a son of Quality Road, made a late stretch bid to capture his debut in Race 6, a six-furlong maiden special weight race race for 2-year-olds.

Alvarado, who has returned to winter at Gulfstream for the first time in several years, came right back to win Race 7 aboard John Kimmel-trained Unicorn Sally ($12) and won Race 8 for Mott with New York Girl ($6.20), a 3-year-old, Irish-bred daughter of New Approach making her U.S. debut.
