HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Miller Racing’s King’s Ghost ($7.40) took the long way around the Gulfstream Park turf course Saturday but still managed to come away with a win by the slightest of noses in the $50,000 Treasure Coast Handicap.

Trained by Marty Wolfson, the 5-year-old daughter of Ghostzapper rallied from last in a field of 10 fillies and mares in the mile turf handicap to prevail over Quebec by a nose. 

After getting pinched back to trail the field into the backstretch, King’s Ghost was forced to race four wide while advancing on the leaders under Jorge Ruiz.  Cowgirl Tough, a 50-1 outsider ridden by Ramsey Zimmerman, showed the way into the stretch, as King’s Ghost swung five wide coming off the final turn. Joined to his outside by Quebec, who made an impressive rush to grab a narrow lead in deep stretch, King’s Ghost fought back to capture her second straight race at Gulfstream.

“I had some trouble early and had to race really wide, but I waited to ask her and when I did, she really gave me a good kick,” Ruiz said through and interpreter.

King’s Ghost ran a mile over a firm turf in 1:36.13 to just edge Quebec and jockey Jose Batista. Cowgirl Tough hung on to finish third.
Sunday’s Rainbow 6 Carryover Jackpot Stands at $222,333

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 went unsolved for the 10th straight racing day at Gulfstream Park Saturday, producing a $222,333.11 carryover jackpot for Sunday’s program.

Multiple tickets with five of six winners were each worth $3,614.72.  

The Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot is paid out only when there is a single unique ticket sold with all six winners.

Sunday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 7-12.
Gunnevera Fires Bullet at Gulfstream Park West

Peacock Racing Stables’ Gunnevera breezed five furlongs in 59.60 seconds Saturday morning at Gulfstream Park West. The Antonio Sano-trained 3-year-old produced his third straight bullet workout while turning in the fastest of nine recorded at the distance.

Unraced since finishing fifth in the Preakness Stakes (G1), the son of Dialed In is scheduled to race once at Gulfstream before venturing to Saratoga for the Travers Stakes (G1) Aug. 26. Last year, Gunnevera won the Saratoga Special (G2) after breaking his maiden at Gulfstream. He went on to conclude his 2-year-old season with a victory in the $1 million Delta Downs Jackpot (G3) before winning the Fountain of Youth (G2) and finishing third in the Florida Derby (G1) this year. Gunnevera finished seventh in the Kentucky Derby (G1).
