HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – The 20-cent Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot at Gulfstream Park ballooned to $2,322,112.61 for Sunday’s card after going unsolved for the 27th consecutive racing day Saturday.

Post time for the Sunday’s 12-race card is set for 1:10 p.m.

A total of $605,431 was bet Saturday into the popular multi-race wager, which began with a carryover of $2,176,843.28 from Friday’s card. Multiple tickets with all six winners Saturday were each worth $112,987.24.

A mandatory payout of the Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot has been scheduled for next Saturday’s $1 million Florida Derby (G1) program. A mandatory payout of the Rainbow 6, Late Pick 5 and last-race Super Hi-5 have also been scheduled for the following day, the last racing day of the 2018-2019 Championship Meet.

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 days’ pool goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners, while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool.

Since the 2018-19 Championship Meet kicked off Dec. 1, the Rainbow 6 has been hit seven times, most recently for a $227,505.88 payout Feb. 15.
There will also be a Super Hi-5 carryover of $8,808.55 heading into Sunday’s race.

Catholic Boy on Schedule after First Breeze off Layoff

Trainer Jonathan Thomas reported Saturday that multiple Grade 1 stakes-winning Catholic Boy is on schedule for a late-spring return to racing after breezing Friday for the first time since finishing off the board in the Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) Nov. 3 at Churchill Downs.

Catholic Boy breezed three-furlongs in 39.40 seconds Friday at Bridlewood Farm in Ocala, FL.

“He went off by himself. I was just looking for a little something, but I was happy with his energy level,” Thomas said. “We were committed to giving him 90 days off and we did that. We’re right on schedule right now. If we have two good months, I think we could be looking for something in May or June, something like that.”

The 4-year-old More Than Ready colt launched his career at Gulfstream Park July 20, 2017 with a two-length debut victory and has gone on to win four graded stakes the past two years, including triumphs in the Belmont Derby (G1) on turf and the Travers (G1) over Saratoga’s main track last year.

Who’s Hot:  Julien Leparoux doubled Saturday, riding Souper Stonehenge ($6.80) to a sharp maiden-breaking victory in Race 5 before scoring aboard Themanbehindtheman ($6.40) in Race 11.  Raphael Hernandez also rode a pair of winners, scoring aboard Nauti Boy ($22) in Race 4 and Hijacker ($12.20) in Race 13.
