Force the Pass Wins the Cutler Bay Stakes
 
Rainbow Six Carryover Grows to $391,444.94
 
Super Hi-Five Carryover: $6,676.62
 
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Richard Santulli’s Force the Pass powered home to a strong neck victory in Wednesday’s $60,000 Cutler Bay Stakes over High Noon Rider and Black Martino. 
 
A 3-year-old son of Speightstown and the Dynaformer mare Social Queen, Force the Pass received a perfect stalking trip under jockey Rajiv Maragh, who elected to delay a trip northward to ride the colt for trainer Alan Goldberg. After settling in midpack early, the chestnut with the crooked blaze moved up to third around the far turn and unleashed a powerful closing kick at the top of the stretch, running right by pacesetters Black Martino and Nutty Futty. High Noon Rider made up considerable ground late but was confidently kept away by the winner.
 
“This horse is really highly regarded from Alan Goldberg, and once I got on him, I really liked him too,” said Maragh, who has ridden Force the Pass in all three of his career starts. “He does everything to make you think that he’s got a chance to be a very good horse. When [Goldberg] let me know that he was going to run [in this race], I wanted to stay and ride him, and it’s working out good. He was always putting me into the race and felt like how he’s been running the first two times – very comfortable – and he finished strong.”
 
Force the Pass now boasts a 2-1-0 record from three starts after breaking his maiden in impressive fashion on March 7. The final time of the 1-mile event was 1:36.11; the colt returned $3.80 for the victory.
 
Rainbow Six Carryover Grows to $391,444.94
 
Gulfstream’s popular multi-race wager, the Rainbow Six, grew to a $391,444.94 carryover Wednesday after going unsolved for the eleventh straight card.
 
Entering the final leg of the 20-cent bet, Lee Pokoik’s J. Quirk had a chance to take down the jackpot but could only manage fourth. Instead, multiple ticketholders each cashed in for $20,358.68 for Wednesday’s winning combination of 5-2-5-8-8-8.
 
The Rainbow 6 jackpot is paid out only 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 Six will be offered again on Thursday and will consist of the card’s third through eighth races. It was last hit on March 18, when it paid $210,973.
