HALLANDALE BEACH, FL
– Gulfstream Park has scheduled guaranteed pools for the 20-cent Rainbow 6, the 50-cent Late Pick 4 and the 50-cent Late Pick 5 on Saturday’s 13-race program.
The Rainbow 6 (Races 8-13) will offer a $900,000 jackpot pool guarantee if the popular 20-cent wager goes unsolved on Friday. The Late Pick 4 (Races 10-13) pool will be guaranteed at $250,000, while the Late Pick 5 (Races 9-13) will offer a $200,000 pool guarantee.
The Rainbow 6 went unsolved Thursday or the 15th consecutive program, producing a $612,325.90 carryover jackpot for Friday’s program.
Multiple tickets with all six winners Thursday were each worth $598.40.
The Rainbow 6 carryover 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.
There was a $550,211 carryover going into Rainbow 6 Friday, when $258,858 was wagering on the sequence that spanned Races 6-11.
The popular multi-race wager was last solved Feb. 23, when a unique ticket was worth a $324,179.78 jackpot payoff.
There will also be a $2,147.25 Super Hi-5 carryover heading into Friday’s program.
Trainer Jorge Navarro was represented by three winners on Thursday’s card: Jaiden’s Best ($4.20) in the first, I’m Thirsty ($3.20) in the seventh and Shaft of Light ($7) in the 10th.
Jockey Jose Ortiz notched back-to-back victories aboard Venezuela Beauty ($3.80) in the fifth and Cape Mist ($8.40) in the sixth.
Allen Maragh scored a double of sorts with his third-race victory aboard Sky Guy ($14), whom he also trains. Sky Guy was the first mount of the year for Maragh, who last won a race as a jockey in 2015 and rode in only four races last year.
