Manchurian High to Carry High Weight in Sunday’s Mecke Handicap
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL
– The 20-cent Rainbow 6 at Gulfstream Park went unsolved for the sixth straight racing day Saturday, producing a $114,209 carryover jackpot for Sunday’s program at Gulfstream Park.
Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $4,202.02.
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 sold, 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.
Sunday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 6-11.
In Race 9, two-time Sunshine Millions Turf winner Manchurian High has been assigned high weight of 122 pounds for his 2017 debut in the Mecke Handicap, a 1 1/8-mile turf event that drew a strong field of nine evenly matched runners. Diaz is scheduled to seek his fourth straight victory in the Mecke Handicap, which will also be contested by veteran stakes performers Two Step Time, Diamond Bachelor, J R’s Holiday, Indian Guide, Galleon Mast, Spring Up and Very Very Stella.
