HALLANDALE BEACH, FL
– The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $250,000 Saturday at Gulfstream Park, where the 2021 FTBOA Florida Sire Series concludes with the running of the $400,000 My Dear Girl and the $400,000 In Reality on a 12-race program that also features the $125,000 FTBOA Wildcat Heir and the $75,000 Hollywood Beach.
The popular multi-race wager went unsolved Friday for the eighth racing day since a Sept. 10 mandatory payout produced multiple payoffs of $313,299.84
The sequence for Saturday’s Rainbow 6 will span Races 7-12, kicking off with the Wildcat Heir, a mile stakes for Florida-bred 3-year-olds and up that are FTBOA Florida Sire Stakes eligible. David Fawkes-trained Noble Drama, a multiple stakes winner who is close kin to 2010 Eclipse champion Big Drama and multiple Grade 1 stakes winner Sheer Drama, is rated as the 8-5 morning-line favorite. The short but talent-packed field also includes graded-stakes winner Well Defined, who captured the Benny The Bull Stakes last time out for trainer Kathleen O’Connell.
A $12,500 claiming race follows in Race 8, a mile event for 3-year-olds and up that could well be viewed as a ‘spread’ race by Rainbow 6 bettors.
Bill Mott’s Outfoxed, a 13 ½-length winner of the $200,000 FSS Susan’s Girl last month, figures to be a popular single in Race 9, the My Dear Girl, the 1 1/16-mile FSS finale for 2-year-old fillies sired by Florida stallions. Larry Rivelli-trained Chacalosa, an open-stakes winner at Arlington, is stated to make her FSS debut Saturday.
A full field of $12,500 claimers has been assembled for Race 10, a mile turf race for 3-year-olds and up that should pose a challenge to Rainbow 6 ticket-makers.
The In Reality, a 1 1/16-mile FSS open-division event carded as Race 11, drew a solid field of 10 Florida-sired juveniles, including Carlos David-trained Octane, the front-running winner of the $200,000 FSS Affirmed, and the Michael Yates-trained Cajun’s Magic, the Affirmed runner-up who captured the $100,000 FSS Dr. Fager.
The Rainbow 6 sequence will be wrapped up in Race 12 by a mile turf race for $12,500 claimers that figures to be another ‘spread’ race.
Earlier on Saturday’s program that gets under way at 12:20 p.m., a field of 11 3-year-olds has been assembled for the $75,000 Hollywood Beach, a five-furlong turf dash carded as Race 5.
The Rainbow 6 jackpot is 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.
