Rainbow Carryover Passes 28 Days - $827,226 Up For Grabs
Friday, August 23, 2019
    HALLANDALE BEACH - The 20-cent Rainbow 6 went unsolved for the 28th consecutive racing day today at Gulfstream Park, producing a carryover jackpot of $827,226 for Saturday’s program.

    First-race post time is set for 12:45 p.m. Silks will open at 10:30 a.m. to accommodate the early 11:35 a.m. first-race post time for Saratoga’s Travers Stakes program. Travers merchandise and betting vouchers will be given away as part of a Spin and Win promotion in Silks. A special buffet will be offered in Ten Palms for $49.99-plus tax.

    There will also be a Super Hi 5 carryover of $2,530.

    Multiple tickets today with six winners were each worth $844.34.

    The Rainbow 6 was last solved on July 6, when one bettor hit for a $173,583 jackpot payoff.

    Today’s sequence generated a handle of $142,052. The carryover jackpot stood at $793,147 at the start of wagering on the multi-race wager. Saturday’s sequence will span races 7-12, anchored by the $100,000 Benny The Bull, a seven-furlong stakes for Florida-bred 3-year-olds and up.

   Flying Pheasant Farm LLC’s Ice Tea, a runaway winner of his last three starts in optional claiming company, has been installed as the 9-5 morning-line favorite in a field of 12. Trained by Mary Eppler, the 5-year-old gelded son of Adios Charlie came off a 15-month layoff to win a 1 1/16-mile race by 2 ½ lengths on May 31 before shipping to Gulfstream, where he won by five lengths at seven furlongs on July 4 and by 7 ½ lengths at a mile on July 21. Jairo Rendon will ride for the first time Saturday.

    Multiple stakes-winner Mr. Jordan, who has amassed more than $850,000 in earnings, and stakes- winners Hy Riverside and Royal Squeeze, are among a strong group of veteran campaigners assembled for the race 12 feature. Art G Is Back, who defeated older optional claiming allowance rivals by 13 ½ lengths last time out, and Take Command, who captured the Carry Back on the Summit of Speed program, are 3-year-olds set to challenge their elders.
