ortiz HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – The 20-cent Rainbow 6 went unsolved for the 29th consecutive program Friday, growing the jackpot carryover to $2,789.246 for Saturday’s 13-race program.

First race post time is noon.

A total of $440,413 was wagered into the pool for the popular multi-race wager Friday, adding to a carryover of $2,683,572 from Thursday’s card. Multiple tickets with all six winners returned $5,390.70.

The Rainbow 6 was last hit Jan. 28, when the mandatory payout of a North American record $19.779 million pool produced multiple winning tickets worth $15,566.

The carryover jackpot is only paid out 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 spans Races 8-13 and includes the $75,000 Captiva Island, a five-furlong turf sprint for fillies and mares 4 and older in Race 13. Also on the card is the $75,000 Silks Run for 4-year-olds and up at five furlongs on the grass in Race 4.

There will also be a carryover of $7,203.74 in the $1 Super Hi-5 for Saturday’s opener.

Retired Red Sox Star David Ortiz Visits Gulfstream Friday

Future baseball Hall of Famer David ‘Big Papi’ Ortiz visited Gulfstream Park on Friday to film a segment for his reality show, Big Papi Needs a Job, which debuted Jan. 31 on Fusion TV.

In the episode, Ortiz explores the ins and outs of being a thoroughbred owner, including a visit to trainer Mark Hennig’s barn, the jockey’s room and grandstand as well as the paddock and walking ring for Race 5, where he gave the call for riders up and later made a presentation to winning jockey Tyler Gaffalione and trainer David Fawkes in the winner’s circle.

Ortiz, 42, retired following the 2016 season after leading the Boston Red Sox to World Series championships in 2004, 2007 and 2013, when he was named Series MVP. A 10-time all-star, he finished with 541 home runs and 1,768 runs batted in and a career batting average of .286 over 20 seasons.

The first season of Big Papi Needs a Job features 10 half-hour episodes where the 6-foot-3 Ortiz, a native of the Dominican Republic tries his hand at various professions. Previous shows had him working as a barista, barber, brewmaster, dog groomer, firefighter trainee, food truck cook, manicurist, mechanic, musician, zookeeper and tour guide at the Red Sox home stadium of Fenway Park.

Rich Mommy and Moonlit Promise ran third and fourth, respectively, in the Hurricane Bertie. Winds of Change Racing Stable Corp.’s Rich Mommy put together a three-race win streak last fall and winter in South Florida capped by a two-length victory in the Sugar Swirl (G3) Dec. 16 at Gulfstream.

J.G. Sikura and Windsor Boys Racing’s Moonlit Promise was beaten three lengths in the Hurricane Bertie, the Malibu Moon mare’s first start since winning three straight at her home track of Woodbine including the Bessarabian (G2) and Ontario Fashion (G3) stakes, both sprints.

The Inside Information is named for the 1995 champion older male and 2008 Hall of Famer that won 14 of 17 career starts and $1.64 million in purse earnings. Six of her victories came in Grade 1 races and she was 3-0 at Gulfstream, all in 1994, including the Bonnie Miss (G2).
