Mandatory Jackpot Payout Set for Friday; Walder Seeks Milestone
Monday, June 26, 2023

    HALLANDALE BEACH - A mandatory payout of the Rainbow 6 pool is scheduled for Friday’s program at Gulfstream Park, where the multi-race wager went unsolved Sunday for the seventh day following a jackpot hit for $263,655 on June 4.

    The carryover jackpot pool stands a $149,053.69 heading into Friday’s card.

    The Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 3-8, featuring an optional claiming allowance with a likely favorite that may well be a popular ‘single’ in Race 5. Terri Pompay-trained Smart Striker will make his first start since finishing second in the Not Surprising Stakes in Friday’s mile-and-70-yard race on Tapeta for Florida-bred 3-year-olds.

    Trainer Peter Walder, who notched his 999th career victory with Royal Kitten in Sunday’s Race 6, will have his next shot at the 1,000-win milestone with two entries in Friday’s Race 7, a mile optional claiming allowance for 3-year-olds and up on the main track. Slim Slow Slider, a winner two starts back in a mile optional claiming allowance, and Big Daddy Dave, who finished second at a mile in his most recent start, will represent Walder in an eight-horse field.
