Even Without Single Winning Tickets, Pick 6 Is Paying Well
Wednesday, May 27, 2020
    HALLANDALE BEACH - Racing returns to Gulfstream Park with a nine-race program Thursday, featuring a jackpot pool guarantee of $1.350 million in the 20-cent Rainbow 6. First race post time is 12:45 p.m.

    The multi-race wager has gone unsolved for the past 10 days since a mandatory payout of $31,476 on May 9. Multiple tickets with all six winners on Monday’s Memorial Day program each returned $26,219.

    Thursday’s sequence begins in Race 4. Race 5 is a 1 1/16-mile maiden special weight for Florida-bred fillies and mares 3 and up that drew a field of 13 led by 2-1 program choice Baseline Drive, a first-time starter by Point of Entry trained by Chad Brown.

    The feature is Race 8, an entry-level optional claiming allowance where seven older females passed the entry box to sprint 6 ½ furlongs on the main track. Top choice at 2-1 on the morning line is 4-year-old stakes-winner Midtown Rose, who has been in the money in 12 of 13 lifetime tries at Gulfstream, four of them winning races. Also entered is her 6-year-old stablemate Archumybaby, a 12-time winner making her 39th career start and first since being moving to the barn of trainer Saffie Joseph Jr.

     Race 2 on Thursday is a 4 ½-furlong maiden claiming event that attracted a field of 13 2-year-olds topped by 5-2 program choice Paladio, one of nine first-time starters. The Gone Astray colt is one of two trained by Antonio Sano, along with Alternation colt Turpial, listed at 9-2.

     Notes: Jockey Nik Juarez doubled Monday with Ocala ($5.80) in the opener and Cpt. Rhett Butler ($19.60) in Race 6. Emisael Jaramillo rode back-to-back winners on Notsosubtle ($3.60) in Race 3 and Gibberish ($12.20) in Race 4.
