Nov 6, 2021
King of Dreams Rules in Saturday’s Showing Up
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL
– The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $400,000 Sunday at Gulfstream Park, where the popular multi-race wager went unsolved Saturday for the 15th racing day following a $461,035.47 jackpot payoff Oct. 9.
Sunday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 5-10, kicked off featuring three optional claiming allowances. Carlos David-trained Gatsby is rated as the 2-1 morning line favorite in the Race 8 feature, a six-furlong sprint for 3-year-olds and up. Gatsby, who most recently followed up a win with a second-place finish, has a claim to fame of debuting with an April 17, 2020 upset victory over heavily favored Golden Pal, who captured Saturday’s Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint (G1) in a romp.
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.
In Saturday’s featured $65,000 Showing Up, King of Dreams followed up a victory in the $60,000 Oakland Park Handicap with an open-lengths triumph to run his record to 2-for-2 on Gulfstream’s Tapeta track.
Owned by former MLB star Victor Martinez’s Victoria’s Ranch, King of Dreams ($16) chased pacesetter Moonlite Strike before taking over on the turn into the homestretch and drawing away to a comfortable score under Leonel Reyes.
The Florida-bred son of Air Force Blue ran a mile and 70 yards in 1:41.40 while prevailing over 11 other 3-year-olds. Fighting Force finished second after making a brief challenge at the top of the stretch. Siglioso finished third.
