HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – The 20-cent Rainbow 6 went unsolved for the 16th straight racing day at Gulfstream Park Friday, producing a carryover jackpot of $391,292.88 for Saturday’s 12-race program.        

Multiple winning tickets Friday paid $923.24. 

There will also be a Super Hi 5 carryover Saturday of $2,717.25.

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 sequence will span Races 7-12 and will include the $100,000 Soldier’s Dancer, a 1 1/16-mile turf stakes headlined by Galleon Mast. The 5-year-old gelding , who is rated as the 7-5 morning-line favorite in a field of nine (with three main-track only entrants), has been first, second or third in his last 15 starts and is a multiple stakes winner over the Gulfstream turf.

Miz Mayhem Seeks Fourth Win in a Row in Sunday’s Nicole’s Dream
            
Laurie Plesa’s Miz Mayhem is slated to seek her fourth straight victory when she goes to post in Sunday’s $75,000 Nicole’s Dream Stakes at Gulfstream Park. The homebred 3-year-old filly, who captured the $75,000 Cedar Key Stakes April 27, is scheduled to meet seven elders in the five-furlong turf sprint for fillies and mares.
            
Prior to capturing a five-furlong optional claiming starter allowance on turf Feb. 23, the daughter of Yesbyjimminy had won one of eight previous starts, that victory coming over the main track at Parx last year. The Eddie Plesa Jr.-trained filly won right back in an optional claiming allowance by four lengths March 22 in front-running style. She pressed the pace before drawing clear by 1 ¼ lengths at the finish of the Cedar Key, also at five furlongs on turf.
            
Edgard Zayas has opted to ride Miz Mayhem rather than maintain the mount aboard Sound Defence, who will also seek her fourth victory in a row in the Nicole’s Dream. Lawson Racing Stables’ Sound Defence won back-to-back optional claiming allowances on the front end before scoring in an off-the turf five-furlong optional claiming race in similar style.
            
Nik Juarez picked up the mount aboard the Ralph Ziadie trainee.
            
Island Reward, Meant Tobe Mine, Bones, Lady’s Island, Awesomendensome and Little Christina are also entered in the Nicole’s Dream.
                 
Former South Florida Trainer Ron Felix Passes Away
                 
Former South Florida trainer Ron Felix has passed away at the age of 80.
                
Felix trained the mare Classy Tricks to eight victories including consecutive Princess Rooney Handicaps in 1986-87. A daughter of Hold Your Tricks, Classy Tricks finished first, second or third in 16 of 17 lifetime starts. 

Felix also trained Bowmans Express, who won the 1984 Florida Stallion Stakes and Hallandale Handicap at Calder, and Emergency Call, who captured the 1981 Dr. Fager and Foolish Pleasure Stakes.
