Mandatory Payout: Saturday’s Rainbow 6 At Gulfstream Anchored By Return Of Math Wizard

Saturday’s program at Gulfstream Park, headlined by the return of Grade 1-winning millionaire Math Wizard in the $55,000 Coaltown against six other stakes winners, will feature a mandatory payout of the 20-cent Rainbow 6.

Unsolved for the 19th consecutive racing day Wednesday, when multiple tickets with all six winners each returned $394.46, the popular multi-race wager will have its jackpot pool guaranteed at $2.5 million when live racing returns to Gulfstream with a 10-race program Friday that begins at noon.

In the Rainbow 6, 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.

On mandatory payout days, the carryover jackpot is completely disbursed and shared by all bettors holding tickets with the most winners.

The Rainbow 6 was last solved for a $31,476.56 mandatory payout May 9.

Friday’s Rainbow 6 spans Races 5-10, highlighted by a second-level optional claiming allowance for 4-year-olds and up scheduled for 1 1/16 miles on the grass in Race 8. The 5-2 program favorite for turf is 8-year-old gelding High Noon Rider, seeking his third straight victory, fourth in six starts this year, and 14th overall.

Also in the field are a pair from trainer Todd Pletcher. Almashriq, a $1.2 million yearling of 2017, ran second to Kroy in a seven-furlong off-the-turf optional claimer May 16, his first start since moving over from retired trainer Kiaran McLaughlin. Intrepid Heart, third in last year’s Peter Pan (G3), has yet to run on grass. He was off the board March 28 at Gulfstream, his first start in eight months, and will be racing for the first time as a gelding.

Saturday’s Coaltown, a one-mile race for 3-year-olds and up, will be the first race for Math Wizard since finishing eighth in the Razorback (G3) Feb. 17 at Oaklawn Park in his 4-year-old debut. The ex-claimer, trained by Saffie Joseph Jr., was second in the Ohio Derby (G3) and third in the Indiana Derby (G3) before his 31-1 upset of the Pennsylvania Derby (G1) last fall.

Also prominent among entries are multiple graded-stakes winner Diamond Oops, fourth in the $3 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational (G1) Jan. 25 in his only 2020 start; 4-year-old filly Letruska, a two-time Mexican Group 1 winner who captured the Copa Invitacional del Caribe against males Dec. 8 at Gulfstream; multiple stakes winners Garter and Tie and Noble Drama; and stakes winners Eye of a Jedi and Red Crescent.
