Gulfstream Today 2.9.2013: 10-Cent Rainbow 6 Carryover at more than $2 Million
Lead: On a day that produced spectacular victories by Graydar in the $500,000 Donn Handicap (G1) and Point of Entry in the $300,000 Kitten's Joy Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap (G1), the fans that crowded Gulfstream and watched throughout the rest of the country bet nearly $700,00 into the 10-cent Rainbow 6.
And one again there were multiple winners which means the 10-cent Rainbow 6 carryover going into Sunday's card will be (drum roll, please)...$2,025,389.75
Those with six-of-six winners Saturday were rewarded with $1,590.59.
Who's Hot: It was a big day for trainer Todd Pletcher, who saddled Graydar to victory in the Donn and Channel Lady to win the $150,000 Suwannee River. He also won the fifth race with Starlight Racing's Park City.
Jockey John Velazquez was aboard Point of Entry in the Kitten's Joy Gulfstream Park Turf and Park City. Jockey Javier Castellano had two wins aboard Saint Vigeur in the sixth and Channel Lady.
