Conquest Sandman Gets Dream Trip in Sunday’s Mecke Stakes

Jul 8, 2018
Thursday’s Rainbow 6 Carryover Jackpot Climbs to $163,000

HALLANDALE BEACH, FL –Costa Brava’s Conquest Sandman was in complete control throughout the running of Sunday’s $75,000 Mecke at Gulfstream Park on his way to collecting his third stakes triumph since being claimed for $16,000 Feb. 10.
Conquest Sandman drew off through the stretch to win by 4 ¼ lengths under Emisael Jaramillo to win his fifth race from eight starts since joining trainer Juan Carlos Abarrio.
The 5-year-old gelded son of Scat Daddy set uncontested fractions of 24.47 (seconds), 48.07 and 1:11.65 for six furlongs on his way to a final clocking of 1:48.16 for 1 1/8 miles on a firm turf course.
“This horse is not normal,” quipped Abarrio, interpreted by assistant trainer Heather Boraco. “As long as he can get on the lead and have it his way, no one is going to tough him.”

Multiple stakes-winner Galleon Mast, the second choice ridden by Miguel Vasquez, closed from last to finish second, 1 ½-lengths ahead of Archer Road, who saved ground throughout the race under Jeffrey Sanchez.
Conquest Sandman had won four of 13 starts for his previous connections.

“You don’t come across many Scat Daddy’s for $16,000 that are clean-legged and in good shape,” Abarrio said. “He was lightly raced for a 5-year-old.”

Abarrio said Conquest Sandman would likely remain at Gulfstream, where he has won seven of 14 starts over the turf course.

Thursday’s Rainbow 6 Carryover Jackpot Climbs to $163,000
The 20-cent Rainbow 6 went unsolved Sunday at Gulfstream Park, producing a $163,457.46 carryover jackpot for Thursday’s program.
Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $1,327.14.

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 six straight days following the June 30 mandatory payout of a pool in excess of $4 million that yielded a $196,953.84 payoff for each ticket with all six winners.

There will also be a $3,963.72 Super Hi 5 carryover Thursday.
