HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – The 20-cent Rainbow 6 went unsolved for the 43rd consecutive racing day at Gulfstream Park Saturday, producing a carryover jackpot of $2,228,137.95 for Sunday’s 11-race card.

Multiple tickets with six winners were each worth $981.44 Saturday.

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 $339,595 was bet into the Rainbow 6 Saturday, when wagering on the six-race sequence started with a carryover of $2,146,645 from Friday’s program.

Sunday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 6-11, highlighted by the $75,000 Thirsty Fish, a 7 ½-furlong turf stakes for 3-year-olds carded as Race 9. Eddie Plesa Jr.-trained Vow Me Now, who captured the English Channel Stakes last time out, is scheduled to take on 11 rivals, including Jose Pinchin-trained Jackson, a stakes winner in his last two races on dirt who has been second in two starts on turf.

The co-featured $75,000 Nicole’s Dream, a five-furlong turf stakes for fillies and mares carded as Race 5, will be headlined by Ralph Nicks-trained Violent Times, a versatile daughter of Violence who came off a six-month layoff to win an off-the turf  optional claiming allowance last time out.

Second Mate Wins Second off the Claim in Saturday’s Soldier’s Dancer

Making only his second start on dirt and running for the second time since being claimed by owner/trainer Michael Maker, Second Mate captured Saturday’s $100,000 Soldier’s Dancer, a 1 1/16-mile stakes that was transferred from the turf course to Gulfstream Park’s main track.

Reserved by jockey Miguel Vazquez, Second Mate ($7.40) settled a few lengths behind his five rivals on the backstretch as Driven By Thunder showed the way while settle fractions of 23.95 and 44.09 seconds under Hector Berrios for the first half-mile. Second Mate continued to trail the field before being tipping out three-wide leaving the far turn and engaging Driven by Thunder at the top of the stretch. The pacesetter held gamely but was no match for the fresh legs of his challenger, who scored by a length. My Point Exactly finished third another half-length back.

Second Mate, who finished sixth in his first start after being claimed for $62,500 March 30.  The 6-year-old son of Mizzen Mast ran 1 1/16 miles in 1:44.37 to win his seventh race in 31 career starts. The Florida-bred gelding debuted on dirt with a fifth-place finish at Monmouth Park Sept. 7, 2015 before making 29 consecutive starts on turf that yielded more than $270,000 in purse earnings. Although stakes-placed on several occasions on turf, Second Mate won his first stakes in the Soldier’s Dancer.
