HALLANDALE BEACH, FL
– The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $200,000 Saturday Gulfstream Park,
The popular multi-race wager went unsolved Friday for the fourth racing day since a lucky ticketholder broke the jackpot for a $400,000 payoff. Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $9,416.98 Friday.
The jackpot pool 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.
Saturday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 7-12, headlined by the $75,000 Game Face, a 6 ½-furlong sprint for 3-year-old fillies, in Race 11. Competitive Speed will seek to rebound from a troubled off-the-board finish in the April 30 Kentucky Oaks (G1) while cutting back to one-turn for trainer Javier Gonzalez. Philip Bauer-trained Minute Waltz, a Churchill Downs shipper, will make her stakes debut in the Game Face, which will serve as a prep for the $350,000 Princess Rooney (G2) on the July 3 Summit of Speed program at Gulfstream.
Earlier on the card in Race 6, multiple graded-stakes winner Diamond Oops headlines the $60,000 Hollywood Lakes, a six-furlong prep for the July 3 $200,000 Smile Sprint (G3). The Patrick Biancone-trained 6-year-old, who captured the 2019 Smile, is Grade 1 stakes-place on dirt and turf and has earned more than $1 million. Eddie Plesa Jr.-trained Miles Ahead will seek his third-straight victory while stepping into open-stakes company for the first time.
First-race post time is set for 12:20 p.m. The Silks simulcasting facility will open at 11 a.m. to accommodate bettors interested in wagering on the Belmont Park program that will get underway at 11:35 and feature the Belmont Stakes (G1).
