HALLANDALE BEACH, FL - The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed for $1.1 million Saturday at Gulfstream Park; the multi-race wager has gone unsolved for 13 days following a mandatory payout on Jan. 30.
The sequence will span Races 7-12, featuring the $150,000 Gulfstream Park Sprint in Race 11. Gr. 1 winner Drain the Clock is rated at 8-5 in the morning line for the six-furlong stakes for older horses. The Saffie Joseph Jr.-trained 4-year-old, who won the Gr. I Woody Stephens at Belmont last season, is coming off a sharp optional allowance score at Gulfstream on Dec. 10. Patrick Biancone-trained Diamond Oops, a multiple graded stakes-winner on turf and dirt, is scheduled to make his 2022 debut. Eddie Plesa Jr.-trained Miles Ahead, the 2021 Gr. III Smile Sprint winner, and Carlos David-trained Gatsby, the Sunshine Sprint victor last time out, are also entered in the Gulfstream Park Sprint.
Who’s Sizzling: Tyler Gaffalione notched a four-bagger today, winning three consecutive races aboard Don Dizney's Running Memories ($8.60) in Race 2, Road to Meath ($63.60) in Race 3, and Jacks or Better Farms' Spirit Wind ($5.80) in Race 4, before scoring aboard Social Engagement ($6.60) in Race 6. Both Running Memories and Spirit Wind are by Double Diamond Farm stallion Bahamian Squall.
In the seventh race, Steel City Dude finished second, but was moved up to first via the disqualification of Wicked Fast, with Irad Ortiz Jr. Steel City Dude is by First Dude, giving Double Diamond stallions three winners on the card.
