HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Patricia Generazio’s Salute the Colonel took command of six rivals leaving the turn into the homestretch on his way to victory in the $60,000 Richard Henry Lee Stakes at Gulfstream Park.

The Joe Orseno trainee’s win was his second straight success at the 1 ½-mile distance on turf, following up his triumph in the Home of the Brave Stakes on Memorial Day

“He won on Memorial Day, and he just won on the Fourth of July, so now I’m hoping there’s going to be a [mile-and-a-half] race for him on Labor Day,” Orseno said.

Salute the Colonel saved ground while settling off the pace set by Bad to the Core and pressed by Whisky N Roses, who showed the way into the backstretch after posting fractions of 27.20 [seconds], 51.90 and 1:16.72 for the first six furlongs. Jairo Rendon remained patient on Salute the Colonel along the backstretch before sending the 5-year-old son of Colonel John three wide on the far turn. The homebred gelding took the lead on the turn into the homestretch and continued on to capture his third career stakes by three-quarters of a length with a final clocking of 2:28.76.

“The key to this horse is getting him to relax. This jock did something that a lot of top riders didn’t do the first time they rode him – he’s a funny horse to ride – he got along with him well the first time, and he did again today,” Orseno said.

Grand Nenuco closed well on the outside under Jesus Rios to finish second, 1 ½ lengths ahead of Second Mate and jockey Miguel Vassquez.

Emisael Jaramillo Notches Five Wins on Fourth of July Card

Jockey Emisael Jaramillo, second in the rider standings during the summer meet behind Edgard Zayas, notched five wins on the Fourth of July program.

Jaramillo won five of the last six races during the 12-race program. Jaramillo also had a five-win day on Sept. 8 of last year.

Jaramillo, who rode the sprinter X Y Jet to four graded-stakes victories from 2015-2018, scored aboard Kitty Jak ($7) in Race 7, Grand Journey ($5.40) in Race 8, Miss Mariu in Race 9, Ice Tea ($6.20) in Race 11, and R Sea Smoke ($17.40) in Race 12. The last two winners were trained by Mary Eppler.

Rainbow 6 Carryover Jackpot Rises to $41,147 for Friday

The Rainbow 6 went unsolved for the fourth consecutive racing day Thursday at Gulfstream Park, producing a carryover jackpot of $41,147 for Friday’s 2:15 p.m. twilight card.

Multiple tickets with all six winners Thursday were each worth $369.24.

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.

There will also be a Super Hi-5 carryover of $2,333.36 heading into Friday’s card.
