Tuesday, January 22, 2019
    HALLANDALE BEACH - Saturday’s 12-race program at Gulfstream Park, highlighted by the $16 million Pegasus World Cup Championship Invitational Series, will offer guaranteed pools for the Late Pick 4, the Late Pick 5 and the Rainbow 6.

    The pool for the Late Pick 4 (Races 9-12) will be guaranteed at $1 million, while the Late Pick 5 (races 8-12) and the 20-cent Rainbow 6 (races 7-12) will offer guaranteed pools of $750,000. The Rainbow 6 pool will be guaranteed as long as the multi-race wager isn’t solved before Saturday.

     The multi-race sequences for all three wagers will include the $9 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational, North America’s richest race; and the $7 million Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational, North America’s richest turf race.

    The third running of the Pegasus World Cup field will be headlined by $6 million Breeders’ Cup Classic winner and 2018 Horse of the Year finalist Accelerate. The Pegasus World Cup Turf will feature an international field of grass stars, including Yoshida, a Gr. 1 winner on turf and dirt, and Aerolithe, a multiple graded stakes-winning mare in Japan making her first start in the U.S.

    Should the Rainbow 6 go unsolved through Saturday’s program, there will be a mandatory payout of the entire pool of the popular multi-race wager on Sunday.

    Saturday’s card will offer seven other stakes, including four additional graded stakes: the $200,000, Gr. III W. L. McKnight; $200,000, Gr. III La Prevoyante; $150,000, Gr. III Fred Hooper; $150,000, Gr. III Fasig-Tipton Hurricane
