Paco Lopez Makes Early Return to Gulfstream Park

Sep 13, 2018
Friday’s Rainbow 6 Carryover Jackpot Grows to $136,733        
            
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Jockey Paco Lopez made an early return to South Florida Thursday, riding three horses on Thursday’s twilight program at Gulfstream Park.
            
“I’m excited to be home. This is my home,” Lopez said. “I decided to come a little early instead of riding in Kentucky and New York.”
            
The 32-year-old Mexico native, who has won numerous titles since he ventured to South Florida, most recently finished second in the jockey standings at Monmouth Park with 71 winners.
            
Lopez, who rode in Kentucky last fall, was based at Aqueduct full time last winter for the first time while winning 12 of 65 races during visits to Gulfstream for stakes mounts.
“I want to get ready for the Championship Meet. I’ll be riding at the Gulfstream (Park) West meet,” Lopez said. “We’re looking forward to the Championship Meet, that’s why we’re here.”
            
Lopez won the Championship Meet title in 2010 and is only one of only four jockeys to win 100 or more races during the premier Gulfstream meet.
            
Friday’s Rainbow 6 Carryover Jackpot Grows to $136,733
            
The 20-cent Rainbow 6 went unsolved for the eighth straight program Thursday at Gulfstream Park, producing a carryover jackpot of $136,733 for Friday’s 2 p.m. twilight program.

Multiple tickets with six winners Thursday returned $394.30.

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.
