One Day Before Mandatory Payout, Gulfstream Puts $1.75 Million Guarantee On Rainbow 6 Jackpot

There will be a guaranteed jackpot pool of $1.75 million in Saturday’s 20-cent Rainbow 6 at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla., after the popular multi-race wager went unsolved Friday for the 10th consecutive racing day.

Post time for Saturday’s 12-race program is 12:45 p.m.

Two horses were live to take down Friday’s jackpot heading into the 10th race finale including first-time starter Reconvene, who led into deep stretch but wound up third behind Cowtown ($9.60). Multiple tickets with six winners were each worth $111,224.90.

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.

Saturday’s Rainbow 6 sequence begins in Race 7, a wide-open maiden special weight for 3-year-olds and up going one mile on the grass. Among the field of 13 are Seize the Hay and Holy Emperor, respectively 2-3 in a 1 1/8 maiden turf event March 7 at Gulfstream, and Freedom’s Flight, the lukewarm 7-2 program favorite.

Front Loaded, trained and co-owned by Rohan Crichton, is the 5-2 top choice in Race 8, a six-furlong claiming sprint for 4-year-olds and up. The multiple stakes-placed 6-year-old gelding has earned $400,400 in 29 lifetime starts. Where Paradise Lay, wo won the Star de Naskra Stakes last summer at Laurel Park going six furlongs but is winless since, and 2019 Trust Buster winner Harryhee, an owner of 12 career victories, are also entered.

Race 9 is a second-level optional claimer for fillies and mares 4 and up at a mile on turf that attracted a field of 14 led by 2019 Gazelle (G2) winner Always Shopping, unraced since finishing sixth as the favorite in the Black-Eyed Susan (G2) last May; stakes winners Zarina, Dark Artist, Goodbye Brockley, Picara and Bramble Queen; and Mintd, who returned from a 20-month layoff with an impressive allowance win March 7 at Gulfstream for trainer Brendan Walsh.

Three-year-olds will go one mile on the main track in Race 10, a starter optional claimer where Triple Crown-nominated Perfect Revenge will have the blinkers taken off by trainer Saffie Joseph Jr. for the 3-year-old’s first start since running 10th following a nightmarish trip in the Risen Star (G2) Feb. 15 at Fair Grounds.

Saturday’s feature comes in Race 11, a five-furlong turf sprint for fillies and mares 4 and up that attracted an overflow field of 14 including program favorite Day By Day, entered for main track only. The 4-year-olds Miss Auramet and Lady Grace will square off seeking their third straight victory over the course and distance after taking successive races during Gulfstream’s Championship Meet.

The Rainbow 6 is capped in Race 12, a 5 ½-furlong maiden claimer for fillies and mares 3 and older where Rye Street takes a significant drop in class for trainer Mike Maker and Honest Gal seeks to graduate after four runner-up finishes in her first seven starts.

There will also be a carryover of $29,617.32 in the $1 Super Hi-5 wager for Saturday’s opener.

On Sunday, April 19, Gulfstream will have mandatory payouts in the Rainbow 6, 50-cent Late Pick 5 and $1 Super Hi-5 wagers.

Notes: For the second day in a row, the team of Arindel, trainer Juan Alvarado and jockey Emisael Jaramillo beat a highly regarded 2-year-old from Wesley Ward when Gatsby ($11.60) outran 1-2 favorite Golden Pal in Race 2. A homebred son of Brethren, Gatsby ran 4 ½ furlongs in 52.36 seconds to win the maiden special weight by three-quarters of a length … Jockey Hector Berrios registered a hat trick Friday, winning aboard Love Nest ($5.20) in Race 3, Polished Copper ($18.20) in Race 5 and Mi Tres Por Ciento ($64) in Race 9.
