Curlin’s Approval, Dearest Square Off in G2 Inside Information
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL
– Guaranteed pools for the 20-cent Rainbow 6, the 50-cent Late Pick 4 and the 50-cent Late Pick 5 will be offered on Saturday’s 13-race program at Gulfstream Park.
The Rainbow 6 (Races 8-13) will offer a $900,000 jackpot pool guarantee. 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 popular multi-race wager went unsolved Friday or the 16th consecutive program
Multiple tickets with all six winners Friday were each worth $885.06.
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.
Saturday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will include the $200,000 Inside Information (G2), a seven-furlong sprint for older fillies and mares carded as Race 11. Curlin’s Approval is scheduled to seek her third consecutive graded-stakes victory of the Championship Meet, having captured the seven-furlong Hurricane Bertie (G3) and the 1 1/16-mile Royal Delta (G2). Luis Saez, who was aboard the Marty Wolfson-trained 4-year-old filly for those victories, has the return mount. Dearest, who captured the six-furlong Sugar Swirl (G3) in her most recent start, is set to challenge Happy Alter’s homebred filly. The Gilberto Zerpa-trained 4-year-old, who has won four of five starts at Gulfstream, is slated to be ridden by Edgard Zayas.
The Rainbow 6 was last solved Feb. 23, when a unique ticket was worth a $324,179.78 jackpot payoff.
There will also be a $5,575.41 Super Hi-5 carryover heading into Saturday’s program.
