Mandatory Payout: Saturday’s Rainbow 6 Wager Features $111,271 Carryover At Gulfstream West

A mandatory payout of the Rainbow 6 pool will take place Saturday at Gulfstream Park West.

The popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the eighth consecutive program following a $249,204 jackpot hit on Oct. 18. Multiple tickets with six winners were each worth $1,797.10 Friday, leaving a carryover jackpot of $111,271.06 heading into Saturday’s program.

The 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 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 whole pool is paid out to the bettor or bettors holding tickets with the most winners in the six-race sequence.

Gulfstream hosts and analysists Ron Nicoletti and Jason Blewitt have handicapped Saturday’s mandatory Rainbow 6. Nicoletti’s ticket is $97.20 while Blewitt’s ticket is $64.80 with a single in the sixth race of Friendly Fella.

Saturday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 4-9, kicked off in Race 4 by a six-furlong sprint that attracted a full field of 12 $8,000 claimers. Rohan Crichton, who has saddled 11 winners from 27 starters during the Gulfstream Park West meet, will be represented by Hard West, who steps up a notch after drawing away to a five-length victory last time out. The Crichton trainee is rated third in the morning line at 9-2 in a most competitive race behind Congrats This, the 7-2 favorite who finished second against better last time out, and Bahamian Prince, who drops to a career low level after finishing two spots behind Congrats This.

A full field of $12,500 claimers will contest Race 5, a 1 1/16-mile race on turf for 3-year-olds and up. Mike is Ready, who is 20-1 in the morning line, gets blinkers after being nosed out in an off-the-turf effort. Senzazione will be well-backed with Paco Lopez aboard for the first time. A seven-furlong sprint for $12,500 claimers, 3-years old and up, follows in Race 6, in which Friendly Fella, who is making his second start off a long layoff, is the 5-2 morning-line favorite.

Joe Bravo makes his return to South Florida Saturday, when he will be aboard Indimaaj in Race 7, a 7 ½-furlong turf races for 3-year-olds and up. Indimaaj finished second in an off-the-turf race last time out. Jane Cibelli-trained Flowmotion, a two-time winner during the Championship Meet at Gulfstream, also make his return to South Florida as the 5-2 morning-line favorite.

Hallawallah, a former Steve Asmussen trainee making her first start for Juan Carlos Avila and Gulfstream Park West debut, is the 5-2 morning-line favorite for the Race 8 feature, a seven-furlong optional claiming allowance for fillies and mares.

A 6 ½-furlong race for $6,500 claiming fillies and mares concludes the Rainbow 6 sequence in Race 9. Reiterate, a runner-up at the $12.500 claiming level last time out, is rated a strong 6-5 favorite in the morning line in a full field.
