Saturday’s Rainbow 6 Jackpot Pool Guaranteed at 750k
Sep 18, 2020
Pay Any Price Bids for Win No. 20 in Saturday’s Feature
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL
– The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $750,000 Saturday at Gulfstream Park.
The popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the 10th consecutive racing program Friday, when multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $3,079.68.
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.
Saturday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 7-12, featuring Pay Any Price’s bid for career win No. 20 in Race 8, a five-furlong optional claiming allowance on turf. The 10-year-old gelding, who set the Gulfstream Park record for five-furlongs on turf (53.61 seconds) in 2017 while winning the Silks Run, is coming off a triumph in the Bob Umphrey Turf Sprint July 5.
The Rainbow 6 sequence will also include a pair of maiden special weight events for juveniles, a mile turf race for fillies in Race 6, and a six-furlong sprint in Race 9.
Reeves Thoroughbred Racing and Andie Biancone’s Mona Stella, who finished second by a neck in her Aug. 15 debut at five furlongs on turf, is the 2-1 morning-line favorite in a field of 12 fillies in Race 6. Al Rashid Stables LLC’s Al Heybay, who finished second in his debut in a rapidly run sprint Aug. 9, is a slight 5-2 favorite over Karl Glassman and Cathi Glassman’s The Great Oz, a son of Liam’s Map who finished second in his Aug. 26 debut, in Race 9.
Gladys, a debuting full sister to 2009 Horse of the Year Rachel Alexander, broke awkwardly from the starting gate and was never a factor in Friday’s Race 6 at Gulfstream Park. Pens Street registered a 14-1 upset victory in the six-furlong maiden special weight race for 2-year-old fillies. Trained by Rohan Crichton, daughter of Street Sense rallied from off the pace to catch 4-5 favorite Speeding in the stretch to prevail by a neck in her career debut.
