Gulfstream Park: Rainbow 6 Jackpot Pool Guaranteed At $300,000 Sunday – Horse Racing News


Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla.

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $300,000 for Sunday’s 10-race program at Gulfstream Park.

First race post time is 12:10 p.m. (ET).

The popular multi-race wager has gone unsolved for 13 consecutive racing days. Multiple tickets with all six winners Saturday each returned $2,475.62.

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.

Sunday’s Rainbow 6 spans Races 5-10 and includes a maiden special weight for 2-year-old fillies scheduled for one mile on the grass in Race 7 that drew an overflow field of 13. Don Alberto Stable’s Alpha Bella adds blinkers for her fourth career start and first since arriving in South Florida. Luis Saez rides for Hall of Fame trainer Todd Pletcher from Post 2.

The feature comes in Race 9, an optional claiming allowance for Florida-bred 3-year-olds and up sprinting 6 ½ furlongs on the main track. Heading a wide-open group of nine is tepid 3-1 program favorite Avant Glory from Sunshine Meet-leading trainer Saffie Joseph Jr. with Tyler Gaffalione up from Post 8. Avant Glory has one win and two seconds in five starts, returning to the dirt after running fifth in a Nov. 26 sprint on the Tapeta.

A second division of the maiden special weight wraps up the sequence in Race 10. James Spry’s Erna, purchased for $600,000 as a 2-year-old in training in April, makes her second start after coming up a neck short at 11-1 in debut going 1 1/16 miles Oct. 22 at Aqueduct.
