HALLANDALE BEACH, FL
– The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $400,000 Saturday at Gulfstream Park.
The popular multi-race wager went unsolved Friday for the seventh racing day since a lucky ticketholder broke the jackpot for a $400,000 payoff. Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $263.18 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 (Races 7-12) will be headlined by the $75,000 Ginger Punch, a 1 1/16-mile turf stakes for Florida-bred fillies and mares in Race 10. Tom Proctor-trained Summering is rated as the 2-1 morning-line favorite in a field of nine, including a main-track-only entrant. The 5-year-old daughter of War Front captured the Distaff Turf for Florida-breds at Tampa Bay Downs last time out. Saffie Joseph Jr.-trained Shifty She, who captured the May 15 Powder Break at Gulfstream, and Juan Alvarado-trained Key Biscayne, who is scheduled to make her 2021 debut after a most productive 3-year-old campaign last year, will both be eligible for a $25,000 win-only bonus offered to FTBOA Florida Sire Stakes-nominated starters.
Deal Go Down Joins Casse-Trained Juvenile Parade
Gabe Grossberg’s Deal Go Down ($9.40) joined trainer Mark Casse’s juvenile parade into the Gulfstream Park winner’s circle Friday with a front-running victory in Race 2, a 5 ½-furlong maiden special weight race for 2-year-olds.
The son of Cairo Prince, who scored by a length under Edwin Gonzalez, was the fifth winner from seven debuting juvenile starters for the Hall of Fame trainer.
Casse, who has had a year-round presence at Gulfstream for the past several years, has enjoyed success in all categories during the Spring/Summer Meet, sending out 15 winners from 54 starters based at Palm Meadows Training Center, Gulfstream’s satellite training center in Palm Beach County.
