03/02/2013

Rainbow 6 Carryover: There was no unique winning ticket on the 10-cent Rainbow 6 Saturday, which means Sunday's carryover will be $208,387.10.

The Rainbow 6 is paid out when there is only one unique ticket with all six winners. Those holding tickets Saturday with six-of-six winners were rewarded with $27,032.14.

Treasury Devil A Winner: Watership Down Stud's Treasury Devil pulled away inside the final sixteenth to win Gulfstream's seventh race, a $57,500 optional claimer at 1 3/8 miles on the turf. Trained by Christophe Clement, Treasury Devil covered the 'firm' course in 2:13.53 and won by 1 1/2 lengths over Exclusive Strike.

A 5-year-old gelded son of Bernardini, Treasury Devil started his career in Great Britain. After finishing seventh at Hollywood Park in June in his U.S. debut for trainer John Shirreffs, he finished second here Feb. 2 at 1 1/16 miles for Clement.

"He has improved since his last race and is more fit as well," said Thomas Brandebourger, assistant to Clement. "He ran great. We're very happy with him. He likes the distance and we knew with the longer distance he would do better."

Lucky Chappy, third in the Hollywood Derby (G1), finished fifth.

Road Trip: Jockeys Joel Rosario and John Velazquez traveled to New York Saturday and each came away with stakes victories. Rosario won the $400,00 Gotham (G3) aboard Vyjack and the $200,000 Tom Fool (G3) aboard Comma to the Top. Velazquez won the Top Flight (G2) with Summer Applause for trainer Chad Brown.

Who's Hot: Three jockeys had a riding double Saturday: Edgar Prado won the Herecomesthebride (G3) with Kitten's Point ($15.60) and the sixth with Perfect Tay ($19), Luis Saez won the Swale aboard Clearly Now ($16) and the seventh with Treasury Devil ($6.60), and Joe Rocco Jr. rode Pistoria ($9.60) to victory in the first and Honduran ($9.60) to victory in the eighth.
