Apr 16, 2021
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL
– A mandatory 20-cent Rainbow 6 payout is set for Saturday’s program at Gulfstream Park, where the pool is expected to swell into the multi-millions.
Saturday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 7-12, including full fields and four turf races, with a weekend forecast calling for sunny skies.
A full field of $20,000 claimers will kick off the Rainbow 6 in a mile turf event that will be identified as a ‘spread’ race by many handicappers. A mile maiden special weight race for 3-year-olds and up follows in Race 8. Todd Pletcher-trained Mr. Briggs, a 3-year-old gelded son of Super Saver, is scheduled to debut as the 5-2 morning-line favorite in a field of eight. George Weaver-trained Road to Success, a 3-year-old son of Quality Road, is also slated to make his debut. Gustavo Delgado-trained Taita, a fast-closing second last time out, is among the most promising entrants that have raced.
A full field of $12,500 claimers in Race 9, a 7 1/2-furlong turf race, is likely to challenge the skills of Rainbow 6 handicappers.
A pair of optional claiming allowances will follow. In Race 10, a field of eight will contest the six-furlong sprint for 4-year-olds and up, including Reservenotattained, the 2-1 morning-line favorite who had won three straight before finishing third last time out. In Race 11, Mystic Lancelot, a son of Into Mischief who finished a close second last time out, is the 2-1 morning-line favorite in the mile turf race for 4-year-olds and up.
The Rainbow 6 sequence will wrap up with a $16,000 maiden claiming race at 1 1/16 miles on turf, featuring a wide-open race that will include Saffie Joseph Jr.-trained first-time starter Raison the Glass and John Kimmel-trained Secrets Kept, a close second last time out.
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.
