Rainbow 6 Carryover Pool to Offer $50,000 Guarantee Saturday         
Five $75,000 Sprint Stakes Highlight Saturday’s Program 
 
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – The 20-Cent Rainbow 6 was solved Friday, producing a $40,000 payoff for a lucky better who held the only ticket with the winners of the last six races on Gulfstream Park 10-race program.
 
The winning sequence was kicked off by Greek Flower ($10) in the fifth race, followed by Cotton Kingdom ($21.80), Monstrip ($16), Congrats Honey ($7), Daddy’s Jewel ($7.20) and Little Daniella ($12.40).
 
The Rainbow 6 carryover pool will offer a $50,000 guarantee for Saturday’s 11-race program, on which the popular multi-race wager will span Race 6 through Race 11.
 
Five $75,000 Sprint Stakes Highlight Saturday’s Program
 
The Fourth of July Weekend at Gulfstream Park will be celebrated Sunday with an 11-race program featuring five $75,000 sprint stakes.
 
The Housebuster for 3-year-olds and up will anchor the multi-stakes offering on the 10th race, highlighted by the 2014 debut of Bahamian Squall.  The David Fawkes-trained 5-year-old captured the Smile Sprint Handicap (G2) at Calder and finished second in the Vanderbilt (G1) at Saratoga last year before finishing a troubled sixth in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint at Santa Anita.
 
The Housebuster will be run at 6 ½ furlongs, as will four of the five scheduled stakes.
 
The Bob Umphrey Turf Sprint, which is scheduled to kick off the stakes action on the fifth race, will be run at five furlongs on the grass course. It will be followed by the Paseana for fillies and mares (sixth race), the Cash Run for 3-year-old fillies (eighth race), the Cherokee Run for 3-year-olds (ninth race) and the Housebuster.
 
Heart Stealer, who captured the Inside Information (G2) at Gulfstream in her last start on March 22, is one of four Marty Wolfson-trained entrants in the Paseana. The 4-year-old daughter of Speightstown, who also won the Sugar Swirl (G3) during the Champions Meet, is also cross-entered in the Housebuster.
 
The Cash Run will offer a clash between impressive debut winner Little Alexis and multiple-stakes winner Scandalous Act. Bolita Boyz, who notched a victory over multiple-stakes winner Wildcat Red via disqualification last fall, tops a strong field of sophomore runners in the Cherokee Run.
 
Post Time for the first race will be 1:25 p.m.
 
Who’s Hot: Edgard Zayas rode a pair of winners, scoring aboard Newspaper Boy ($4.20) in the first and Greek Flower ($10) in the fifth.
