Saturday’s Rainbow 6 Carryover Jackpot Tops 2.4 Million

Supercommittee Tops Strong Field for Saturday’s Ginger Punch
Undefeated King Humor Shine in Return in Friday Feature

HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – The 20-cent Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot for Saturday’s program at Gulfstream Park swelled to a $2,402,864.30 Friday when the popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the 46th consecutive racing day.
Multiple tickets with six winners were each worth $25.74 Friday.

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.

A total of $254,878 was bet into the Rainbow 6 Friday, when wagering on the six-race sequence started with a carryover of $2,341,706 from Thursday’s program.

Saturday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 7-12.

The $75,000 Ginger Punch, a 1 1/16-mile turf stakes for Florida-bred fillies and mares, carded as Race 5, will headline Saturday’s 12:45 p.m. program. Supercommittee, the 8-5 morning-line favorite tops a seven-horse field consisting of six stakes winners and a stakes-placed horse.

Undefeated King Humor Shine in Return in Friday Feature

Granpollo Stable’s King Humor returned from a year layoff to maintain his undefeated record Friday at Gulfstream Park, scoring a 2 ½-length victory in Race 8, a six-furlong sprint for 3-year-olds and up.

The 4-year-old son of Distorted Humor entered Friday’s race with a 3-for-3 career record, capped by a victory in the Ocala Flame Stakes at Gulfstream June 7, 2018. The Kentucky-bred colt exited the 6 ½-furlong stakes with a minor issue that required ‘three or four months on the farm.’

King Humor ($5.80) showed no rust Friday while tracking an early speed duel between Harryhee and 6-5 favorite Field Trip and kicking in through the stretch to win comfortably under Emisael Jaramillo.

“The horse today, in opinion was 85 percent. My horse is 100 percent class,” trainer Victor Barboza Jr. said. “For me, he’s the best horse I’ve trained in my life.”

Although the $250,000 Smile Sprint (G3) on the June 29 Summit of Speed program at Gulfstream has been on Barboza’s radar, he expressed doubt that King Humor would make the quick two-week turnaround to run in the six-furlong sprint.

Field Trip held second under Marcos Meneses. Soutache, who was making his first start since August, finished third.
