HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – The 20-cent Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot continued to swell to life-changing proportions Saturday at Gulfstream Park, where the popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the 25th consecutive racing day.

The carryover jackpot climbed to $712,697.13 for Sunday’s 12-race program. Multiple tickets with six winners Saturday were each worth $67,829.24.

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.

The Rainbow 6 was last solved July 6, when one lucky bettor hit for a $173,583.90 jackpot payoff.

A total of $242,281 was bet into the Rainbow 6, which offered a carryover jackpot pool of $654,663.33 at the start of wagering Saturday.

Multiple-Stakes Winner Galleon Mast Tops Sunday Turf Feature

Sunday’s Rainbow 6 sequence at Gulfstream Park will be highlighted by a stakes-quality optional claiming allowance on turf in Race 11.

Galleon Mast, a veteran multiple-stakes winner trained by David Fawkes, will seek to get back on track in Sunday’s feature after finishing out of the money for the first time in 19 starts over the Gulfstream turf last time out. The popular gray 6-year-old gelding finished seventh June 19 while coming back from a seven-month hiatus.

The son of Mizzen Mast, who will be ridden by Sammy Camacho, will be one of four stakes winners in the seven horse field for the mile turf event, which also attracted graded-stakes winner Well Defined as a main-track-only entrant.

Kroy, a multiple-stakes winner who finished second in the Mathis Brothers Mile (G2) at Del Mar two years ago, will also seek to return to winning form Sunday. The 5-year-old son of The Factor finished an improved second in his third start of the year for trainer Armando De La Cerda, who gave the call to Edgard Zayas.

Eyes of the Jedi, who will return to turf after winning the July 20 Sea of Tranquility on the main track; War Giant, a stakes winner on dirt who finished second last time out while making only his second turf start, and Driven by Thunder, who defeated Kroy two starts back before finishing fourth in the July 7 Mecke; are among the most prominent contenders in a field that includes Grand Journey, who will seek his third-straight optional claiming allowance victory; and Ambassador Jim, who finished third in the Mecke.

Kathleen O’Connell-trained Well Defined won the Feb. 9 Sam F. Davis (G3) at Tampa Bay Downs and captured the $400,000 FSS In Reality at Gulfstream Park last fall.

Liza Star Looks Like a Rising Star in Saturday Feature

Ron Paolucci Racing, LLC’s Liza Star notched her fourth straight victory Saturday at Gulfstream Park while overcoming a stumble at the start of the Race 6 feature, a six-furlong optional claiming allowance for fillies and mares.

The 5-year-old daughter of Cool Coal Man, who was claimed out of a victory in a May 18 $6,250 claiming race, scored her third straight open-lengths triumph since joining trainer Peter Walder’s stable.

“I can’t take credit for picking her out. I can only take credit for getting her good. Ron picked her out. He’s a really good handicapper,” Walder said. “She’s doing well in our program. We don’t over-train her and give her space between races, and she’s really responded.”

Ridden by Miguel Vasquez, Liza Star ($6.20) recovered quickly from the stumble to surge to the lead on the rail along the backstretch, setting fractions of 22.39 and 45.76 seconds for the first half mile on her way to a 2 ¾-length victory in 1:11.36.  Isla Rode, the 6-5 favorite ridden by Christian Torres, finished second.
