HALLANDALE BEACH, FL
– For the 30th consecutive program Saturday at Gulfstream Park, the 20-cent Rainbow 6 went unsolved to push the jackpot carryover to $2,946,550.06 for Sunday’s 13-race program.
First race post time is noon.
Three horses were live to take down the jackpot heading into the 13th race finale, the $75,000 Captiva Island, won by Blue Bahia ($6). A total of $655,675 was wagered into the popular-multi-race wager, adding to a carryover of $2,789,246 from Friday’s program.
Multiple tickets with all six winners each returned $61,173.78.
The Rainbow 6 was last hit Jan. 28, when the mandatory payout of a North American record $19.779 million pool produced multiple winning tickets worth $15,566.
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.
Sunday’s Rainbow 6 spans Races 8-13 and includes featured second-level optional claiming allowance sprints for older fillies and mares going 7 ½ furlongs on the turf in Race 9, and 4-year-olds and up at six furlongs on the main track in Race 12.
Who’s Hot: Trainer Jason Servis and jockey Paco Lopez teamed up to sweep both of Saturday’s stakes, the $75,000 Silks Run with Vision Perfect ($10.80) and the $75,000 Captiva Island with Blue Bahia ($6).
Jockeys Luis Saez and Edgard Zayas each enjoyed three-win days Saturday. Saez, the Championship Meet leader and defending champion, was first with Song of Melody ($3) in the second race, Reflected Star ($6.60) in the seventh and Up the Road ($5.20) in the eighth. Zayas won aboard Rain in Spain ($22.40) in the first, Hills Pond ($9.20) in the fifth and Journey’s End ($6.80) in the 11th.
Winning twice Saturday were jockey Emisael Jaramillo with In Equality ($4.20) in the third and Determinant ($14.40) in the 12th and trainer Armando De La Cerda, who saddled both Song of Melody and In Equality.
