Huge Gulfstream Jackpot Guaranteed for Thursday
Wednesday, February 23, 2022
    HALLANDALE BEACH, - A mandatory payout of the 20-cent Rainbow 6 pool has been scheduled for Saturday at Gulfstream Park.

    The Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed for $1.35 million Thursday - the multi-race wager has gone unsolved for 16 days following a mandatory payout on Jan. 30

    Thursday’s sequence will span Races 4-9, kicked off by a mile turf race for $50,000 claimers in Race 4. Saffie Joseph Jr.-trained Max K.O., who finished fourth in the Sunshine Turf last time out, is 3-1 in the morning line while dropping back into the claiming ranks. The Mike Maker-trained Order and Law is also dropping into claiming company after running competitively in stakes in his last four starts.

    In the Race 8 feature, a mile starter allowance for older horses on Tapeta, Buenisimo, a winner of two of three starts on the all-weather surface, is scheduled to make his first for trainer Kelsey Danner, who has positive off-the-claim stats.
