Galleon Mast Guts out Narrow Win in Eight Miles East Stakes

Aug 6, 2017
Gunnevera Preps for Travers with Strong Tangelo Stakes Win
Thursday’s Rainbow 6 Carryover Jackpot Rises to $71,515

HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Anne Scott’s Galleon Mast came again in deep stretch to score by a head in Sunday’s $75,000 Eight Miles East Stakes at Gulfstream Park.

Ridden by Tyler Gaffalione, the ultra-game 4-year-old son of Mizzen Mast rallied from off the pace to take the lead in mid-stretch before being headed by My Point Exactly to his inside. Under a strong hand ride, the David Fawkes-trained gelding fought back to get to the wire first.

“He’s a fun horse,” Fawkes said. “He’s a neat horse. He likes to hang a little bit. He let that other horse come back to get a little competition.”

Fawkes said the Sandy Lane Barbados Gold Cup next winter could well be in Galleon Mast’s future.

“I’ve been wanting to go, and he might be the kind of horse to go, but it’s a ways a way,” Fawkes said. “He’s a handy horse. He’s the kind of horse you could take over there. You’ve got to go the other way [around]. He adapts to everything.

Galleon Mast, who has finished in the money in 14 of 18 career starts, ran the mile on turf in 1:33.66 as the 7-5 favorite. My Point Exactly finished 1 ¾ lengths ahead of pacesetter Keepthedreamalive.

Earlier on Sunday’s program, multiple graded-stakes winner Gunnevera captured the $100,000 Tangelo Stakes by five lengths in a tune-up for the Aug. 26 Travers Stakes (G1) at Saratoga.

Ridden by Edgard Zayas, the Antonio Sano-trained 3-year-old colt closed from last in the five-horse field off slow early fractions, circled the field on the turn and drew off to a comfortable victory in the fourth race. The son of Dialed In, who captured the Fountain of Youth (G2) at Gulfstream in February, hadn’t raced since finishing fifth in the Preakness Stakes (G1) at Pimlico May 20,

Gunnevera ran 1 1/16 miles in 1:44.30 to claim his fourth stakes triumph.
Thursday’s Rainbow 6 Carryover Jackpot Rises to $71,515

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 Carryover Jackpot rose to $71,515.53 for Thursday’s program at Gulfstream Park when the popular multi-race wager went unsolved Sunday.

Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $5,208.02.

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.

The popular multi-race wager has gone unsolved for seven straight programs after being hit for a $436,076.38 on July 27.

There will also be a Super Hi-5 Carryover of $3,634.093 entering Thursday’s program.
