Thursday’s Rainbow 6 Pool At Gulfstream Guaranteed At $850,000

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $850,000 Thursday at Gulfstream Park.

The popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the fourth racing day in a row since a mandatory payout April 19. Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $61,217.90 Sunday.

The Rainbow 6 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.

Homewrecker Stable Inc.’s Hop Kat skipped over the sloppy track at Gulfstream Park Sunday, scoring a length victory in the Race 10 feature to remain undefeated in two career starts.

Trained by Eddie Kenneally, Hop Kat was coming off an 11-month layoff after breaking his maiden by eight lengths at Churchill Downs last May.

Hop Kat ($7.20) saved ground while tracking the pacesetters along the backstretch and on the turn into the stretch before shaking clear at the top of the stretch and edging away to a comfortable victory.

“I thought it was a great effort today. He’d only had the one effort under his belt. He broke fast that day, went quick and just ran away from them. So, I was a little worried how much he got out of that race and coming off the layoff, but Eddie had him 100 percent ready today,” jockey Tyler Gaffalione said. “I had an easy job, just kind of steer him around there, but, man, I really liked the way he ran today. He finished up well, galloped out strong, and I’m looking forward to him down the road.

The 3-year-old son of Stay Thirsty ran seven furlongs in 1:10.71 to capture the first-level allowance for 3-year-olds and up.

Double Crown, who was making his first start since winning his debut at Laurel in September, closed from far back to finish second, a neck ahead of third-place finisher Jake Rocks, who set the pace into the stretch.

Jaramillo Within Four of 1000 Wins in North America

Jockey Emisael Jaramillo moved to within four victories of 1000 North American wins while riding two winners on Sunday’s program at Gulfstream Park.

The 43-year-old native of Venezuela guided Erv’s Wench to a three-length victory in Race 8, a seven-furlong maiden special weight for 3-year-old fillies. He came right back to notch No. 996 aboard Roddick ($10) in Race 9, prevailing in a tight photo in the 1 1/16-mile $12,500 claiming race that was moved from turf to a sloppy main track.

Jaramillo rode more than 4000 winners in Venezuela, where he was a 13-time champion, before venturing to South Florida in 2015. He has ridden more than 200 winners in each of the last four years, primarily at Gulfstream and Gulfstream Park West.
