Fully Loaded Rushes to Head of Florida Sire Stakes Class

Jul 6, 2018
Saturday’s Rainbow 6 Carryover Jackpot Climbs to $92,022  

HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Fully Loaded rushed to the head of the class of Florida Sire Stakes candidates Friday at Gulfstream Park, scoring a dominating front-running triumph in the featured sixth race, a $47,000 optional claiming allowance for 2-year-olds.

The son of Two Step Salsa, who was sent to post as the 4-5 favorite in a field of six, won by 7 ½ lengths under jockey Edgard Zayas, completing the 5 ½ furlongs in 1:04.12 after setting fractions of 22.07 (seconds), 45.16 and 57.45.

“It was expected,” said trainer Jose Pinchin of Fully Loaded’s second career victory in as many starts. “Edgard said he just galloped around.”

The 2018 FTBOA Florida Sire Stakes series for 2-year-olds kicks off Aug. 4 with the $100,000 Dr. Fager and the $100,000 Desert Vixen for fillies, both at six furlongs. The $200,000 Affirmed and $200,000 Susan’s Girl for fillies, both at seven-furlongs, will be run Sept. 1, followed by the $400,000 In Reality and the $400,000 My Dear Girl for fillies, both at 1 1/16 miles, Sept. 29.

Pinchin has enjoyed much success in the lucrative Florida Sire Stakes over the years, including a series sweep in 2016 with Three Rules. When asked if there were any similarities between Three Rules and Fully Loaded, Pinchin made a motion toward the racetrack, where his star on the rise had just pulled away from his rivals with ease.

“They can both run,” he said.

Saturday’s Rainbow 6 Carryover Jackpot Climbs to $92,022  

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 went unsolved Friday at Gulfstream Park, producing a $92,022.09   carryover jackpot for Saturday’s 12-race program (First-race post time – 12:45 p.m.).

Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $390.34.        

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. 

The Rainbow 6 has gone unsolved for four straight days following last Saturday’s mandatory payout of a pool in excess of $4 million that yielded a $196,953.84 payoff for each ticket with all six winners.

Saturday’s six-race Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 7-12, featuring the $100,000 Not Surprising Stakes in Race 12. Todd Pletcher-trained Coltandmississippi, third in the Penn Mile (G2) last time out, has been installed as the 9-5 favorite in a deep field of 14 for the mile turf stakes. Efren Loza Jr.-trained Silent Citizen, who has finished first in five of six lifetime starts, is rated second at 5-2. Silent Citizen captured the Stanton Stakes at Delaware Park last time out, defeating Up the Ante, who came back to win the Manila Stakes at Belmont Park on July 4.

Saturday’s program will also feature the $100,000 Martha Washington, a mile turf stakes for 3-year-old fillies carded for Race 6. Oscar Gonzalez-trained Camila Princess, who won the Honey Ryder at Gulfstream prior to finishing seventh in the Wonder Again (G3) at Belmont Park, has been installed as the even-money favorite in a field of nine.
