Nov 19, 2017
Live Racing Resumes Friday; Silks Open Wed. & Thursday
$24,382.83 Super Hi-5 Carryover Friday
Three Rules Breezes Sharply for Upcoming Return
MIAMI GARDENS, FL
– The 20-cent Rainbow 6 was solved at Gulfstream Park West Sunday when a single ticket with six winners returned a $141,853.12 jackpot payoff.
The winning combination of 8-12-10-4-5-10 was purchased on a New York account.
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 betters holding tickets with the most winners while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool.
The popular multi-race wager had gone unsolved since a lucky single ticketholder cashed for a $52,137 jackpot payoff Nov. 9.
The Rainbow 6 will begin anew when live racing resumes on Friday.
There will also be a $24,382.83 Super Hi-5 Carryover heading into Friday’s card.
Silks simulcasting facility will be open at Gulfstream Park on Wednesday and Thursday, when Laurel Park is scheduled to conduct its traditional Thanksgiving Day program (11:25 a.m, first post).
Three Rules Turns In Bullet Workout for Upcoming Return
Three Rules turned in a ‘bullet’ workout at Gulfstream Park Sunday in preparation for his upcoming return to action, breezing five furlongs in 59.95 seconds, the fastest of 17 clockings recorded for the distance.
“I’m very happy the way he breezed,” said Jose Pinchin, who trains the homebred 3-year-old colt for Shade Three Thoroughbres, Geoff Roy and Tom Fitzgerald. “He’s doing very good.”
Three Rules was given a break after capturing the Carry Back (G3) on the July1 Summit of Speed program at Gulfstream Park. Sunday’s workout was his seventh since returning from a freshening and his second straight five-furlong ‘bullet’ breeze.
“He’s gotten bigger and stronger,” Pinchin said.
The son of Gone Astray is being pointed toward the $125.000 FTBOA Marion County Florida Sire Stakes at Tampa Bay Dec. 16.
Three Rules has earned $939,160 while winning six of 11 career starts, including all three legs of the 2016 FTBOA Sire Stakes series for 2-year-old colts and geldings.
