MIAMI GARDENS - A mandatory payout of the Rainbow 6 pool has been scheduled for Saturday’s program at Gulfstream West.
Heading into Friday’s program, the multi-race wager has gone unsolved for seven programs following a $249,204 jackpot hit on Oct. 18. Multiple tickets with five out of six winners today were each worth $843.22. The jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $175,000 for Friday’s program.
Friday’s sequence will span Races 3-8, kicked off by a mile optional claiming allowance on turf for state-bred 3-year-olds and up. Sassy But Smart, who was beaten by less than two lengths in a fourth-place finish in the Palm Beach during the Championship Meet, and Till the End, who has been 1-2-3 in his last four starts at the level, appear to be the key contenders.
Race 4 is a six-furlong race for $50,000 maiden claiming 2-year-old fillies. Terry’s Dream, a daughter of Jess’s Dream who finished second in her recent debut, will be taken on by a pair of first-time starters by California Chrome and Not This Time, and four others. A five-furlong turf dash for Florida-bred fillies and mares follows in Race 5, featuring the return of Daddy’s Joy, who graduated in her first start for trainer Saffie Joseph Jr. in her first start at Gulfstream Park last time out. In only her third career start, the daughter of Daddy Long Legs will concede considerable experience to her eight rivals.

A seven-furlong maiden special weight race for fillies and mares will start off the second half of the sequence in Race 6. Todd Pletcher-trained Abilene Trail, a 3-year-old daughter of Curlin, will return from a 13-month layoff while facing five rivals, including Eddie Plesa Jr.-trained Cozy Café, who finished a troubled third in her recent debut. The sequence will be wrapped up with a mile race for $8,000 claimers in Race 8 and a 1 1/16-mile turf race for $16,000 maiden claimers, 3-year-olds and up, in Race 9
