HALLANDALE BEACH - The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $500,000 today at Gulfstream Park. The multi-race wager went unsolved for the seventh racing program Saturday, and multiple tickets with six winners were each worth $866.96.
Isolate Distances Himself in Feature for 2-Year-Olds
Reeves Thoroughbred Racing’s Isolate distanced himself from his five rivals in Saturday’s feature race, with juveniles taking center stage on an 11-race program that also included a pair of 2-year-old maiden special weight events.
Isolate ($4.20) followed up his Aug. 6 debut victory with a thoroughly authoritative 8 ¾-length triumph in the six-furlong optional claiming allowance, in which he took the lead shortly after the start and drew off under Cristian Torres. The Kathy Ritvo-trained son of Mark Valeski ran six furlongs over a sealed sloppy track in 1:10.97.
Slam Dunk Racing’s Drain the Clock ($5.20) kicked off Saturday’s program with a stylish debut victory in Race 1, taking the lead shortly after the start of the five-furlong dash and romping to a six-length score in :58.73 over a sealed sloppy track. The Saffie Joseph Jr.-trained son of Maclean’s Music gave leading rider Edgard Zayas his first of four winners for the day.
Shadybrook Farm’s Briella ($5.20) just held on to win after leading throughout Race 5, scoring by a nose in the five-furlong maiden special weight race for Florida-bred juvenile fillies. The daughter of Cajun Breeze raced five furlongs in :59.39 and gave jockey Miguel Vasquez the first of his two winners Saturday. The Michael Yates-trained filly finished second in her May 20 debut behind Princess Secret, who went on to win the $200,000 Susan’s Girl, second leg of the FTBOA Florida Sire Stakes on Aug. 29. Zayas, the defending Spring/Summer Meet titlist, leads Vasquez in the standings, 130-120.
