HALLANDALE BEACH, FL
– A mandatory payout on closing day of the Spring/Summer Meet at Gulfstream Park yielded multiple payoffs of $218,767.70 Sunday.
The popular multi-race wager had gone unsolved for 15 consecutive racing days heading into the mandatory payout. A carryover pool of $745,396.50 helped to generate a Rainbow 6 handle of $3,922,471 Sunday.
The Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot is usually 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 usually goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners, while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool. However, on mandatory payout days, the entire pool is paid out to the bettor or bettors with the most winners in the six-race sequence.
The Late Pick-5 produced a $21,513 payoff.
Apprentice-on-the-rise Alberto Burgos finished up the Spring/Summer Meet with an impressive four-win day, winning both ends of the early double with Inedatequila ($9.80) in Race 1 and Grace’s Drama ($5.80) in Race 2. He added victories aboard Vuyelwa ($13) in Race 4 and Yodel E. A. Who ($5.40) in Race 10.
Jockey Edgard Zayas successfully defended his Spring/Summer Meet title with 137 wins, 10 more than runner-up Miguel Vasquez. Zayas also was first in purses-won with more than $4.15 million.
Trainer Saffie Joseph Jr. led all trainers with 59 victories, while Ralph Nicks topped all trainers with more than $1.5 million in purses-won.
Stonehedge LLC was tops among owners with 24 wins and $1,190,720 in purses.
