Gulfstream Park: $500,000 Guaranteed Jackpot In Saturday’s Rainbow 6 – Horse Racing News

Mystic Eyes winning the Stewart Manor Stakes at Belmont Park.

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 gross jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $500,000 Saturday at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla., after going unsolved Friday for the eighth racing day in a row since the jackpot was hit or a $342,836.75 payoff.

The Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 6-11, including the $75,000 Melody of Colors in Race 7 and the $75.000 Texas Glitter in Race 9.

A full field of 12 is entered for the Melody of Colors, a five-furlong turf sprint for 3-year-old fillies in which Todd Pletcher-trained Mystic Eyes is slated to make her 2022 debut. The daughter of Maclean’s Music, who is the 3-1 morning-line favorite, concluded her juvenile campaign with a front-running victory in the Nov. 6 Steward Manor Stakes at Belmont Park.

Simon Callaghan-trained Comedic, who closed with a rush to graduate on Tapeta last time out in an off-the-turf maiden race, is set for a return to turf, over which she finished second twice in her first two career starts in Southern California. Rusty Arnold-trained Artos is scheduled to make her first start since finishing fourth in the Queen Mary (G2) at Royal Ascot last June.

The Texas Glitter, a five-furlong turf sprint for 3-year-olds, features a field of seven, including Wesley Ward-trained Lucci, a commanding front-running optional claiming allowance winner in his 2022 debut at five furlongs on turf. Last year, the son of Not This Time broke his maiden at first asking before finishing fifth, beaten a length, in the Norfolk Stakes (G2) at Royal Ascot. Jonathan Thomas-trained High Front, a dazzling debut winner at five furlongs on turf at Gulfstream in January, returns in the Texas Glitter.

The Rainbow 6 jackpot is 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.

Who’s Hot: Rafael Hernandez notched a double on Friday’s card, scoring aboard Karla Sofia ($10.80) in Race 3 and Lido Key ($7.20) in Race 5.  Tyler Gaffalione also doubled, winning with Super Lunar ($7.60) in Race 2 and Champagne Lady ($7.60) in Race 9.
