Red-Hot Casse Represented in Two of Three MSW Races
Friday’s Rainbow 6 Jackpot Pool Guaranteed at $500,000
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL
– Live racing action at Gulfstream Park will resume Friday with a nine-race twilight card [2 p.m. start] that will feature three maiden special weight races for 2-year-olds.
Hall of Fame trainer Mark Casse, who has dominated the 2-year-old season at Gulfstream thus far, will be represented by first-time starters in two of the three juvenile races. Casse has sent out debut winners in five of seven events for 2-year-old thus far during the Spring/Summer Meet. He is scheduled to be represented by Quintessential Racing Florida LLC’s Fulminate in Race 1 and Live Oak Plantation’s Forever Souper in Race 5.
Fulminate, a son of Get Stormy out of a City Zip mare, has been training forwardly at Palm Meadows, Gulfstream’s satellite training facility in Palm Beach County, for the $70,000 7 ½-furlong race on turf. Forever Souper, a son of American Pharoah out of a War Front mare, has also been training sharply at Palm Meadows for Friday’s debut in the $60,000 five-furlong sprint for Florida-breds on the main track.
Shooting Star Thoroughbreds LLC’s Noble Dreamer, who pressed the early pace while three-wide before finishing second in her May 28 debut, will return to action in Race 3, a five-furlong sprint for Florida-bred fillies. Saffie Joseph Jr. trains the daughter of Noble Bird, a Grade 1 stakes winner who ran in the 2017 Pegasus World Cup Invitational (G1) at Gulfstream.
Friday’s 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $500,000. The popular multi-race wager has gone unsolved for nine racing days since a lucky ticketholder broke the jackpot May 29 for a $400,000 payoff.
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.
