Rainbow 6 Jackpot Pool Guaranteed At $600,000 Saturday

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $600,000 Saturday at Gulfstream Park.

The popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the fourth racing day in a row following last Saturday’s mandatory payout. Multiple tickets with five of six winners were each worth $1,235.24 Friday

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.

Saturday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 7-12, including four $75,000 Sunshine Stakes for Florida-breds that offer $25,000 win-only bonuses for horses Florida Sire Stakes-eligible starters.

A mile maiden special weight race for 3-year-olds on turf will kick off the sequence in Race 7. The Sunshine Filly and Mare Turf, a 1 1/16-mile turf event for older fillies and mares, follows in Race 8, featuring multiple graded stakes-placed Kelsey’s Cross in a well-balanced field of nine.

Noble Drama is scheduled to defend his title in the Sunshine Classic, a 1 1/8-mile race for older state-breds, in Race 9. The 7-5 morning-line favorite may prove to be a popular Rainbow 6 ‘single’ with many bettors.

Extravagant Kid has also been installed as the 7-5 morning-line favorite for his title defense in the Sunshine Sprint, a six-furlong dash for older horses carded as Race 10. The versatile Brendan Walsh-trained gelding, who was beaten by a length while finishing fourth in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint (G1) last time out, captured the 2020 Sunshine Sprint by 2 ¾ lengths. Mark Casse-trained Proven Strategies, who captured the Toronto Cup at Woodbine last time out and Danny Gargan-trained Venezuelan Hug, winner of the Sunshine Turf Preview at Gulfstream Park West, are among the top contenders for the Sunshine Turf, a 1 1/16-mile turf race for older horses carded as Race 11. A full field of $16,000 claimers will contest Race 12, a 1 1/16-mile turf race for older horses.

There will also be a Super Hi-5 carryover of $5,724.55 heading into Saturday’s program.
