Rainbow Guarantee of $1.2 Million for Sunday
Saturday, May 23, 2020
    HALLANDALE BEACH - There will be a jackpot pool guarantee of $1.2 million in Sunday’s 20-cent Rainbow 6 wager at Gulfstream Park. Post time for the first of 11 races is 12:45 p.m.

    The multi-race wager has gone unsolved for the past eight days since a mandatory payout of $31,476 on May 9. Multiple tickets with all six winners Saturday were each worth $23,501.

    There will also be a Super Hi 5 carryover of $20,069.

    Four of the six races in Sunday’s Rainbow 6, which spans Races 6-11, are scheduled for the turf. The quartet attracted 50 entries, an average of 12.5 horses per race. Among the sequence are back-to-back optional claiming allowances for 3-year-olds and up going 1 1/16 miles in Race 9 on the dirt and Race 10 on the grass.

    Juddmonte Farms’ multiple stakes-winning homebred Seismic Wave will make his season debut in Race 3, a one-mile optional claiming allowance for 4-year-olds and up on the grass where the 4-year-old son of Tapit is the 5-2 program choice. Trained by Hall of Famer Bill Mott – now eight wins shy of 5,000 for his career but 0-for-29 at Gulfstream’s spring-summer meet – Seismic Wage hasn’t raced in seven months since taking the one-mile English Channel at Belmont Park. He is two-for-two on the grass at Gulfstream, breaking his maiden and winning the Cutler Bay during last winter’s Championship Meet.

     Also in the field are 8-year-old Class and Cash, whose 13 career wins include the 2018 Laurel Dash; graded stakes-placed Colonist and Tizzarunner, the latter exiting a 31-1 upset at the course and distance on April 23; 2019  Gio Ponti winner Temple; English Gr. III winner Monarchs Glen; and Renaisance Frolic, a two-time stakes-winner on the Gulfstream turf.

NOTES: Victor Lebron swept the early daily double aboard Cardiac Kid ($5) and Macho d’Oro ($7.40), and added a third winner on Malibu Max ($4.60) in Race 9, moving the 35-year-old native of St. Croix, Virgin Islands into the top 10 in wins and purses at the spring-summer meet . . . Edgard Zayas also had two wins, with Witch Hunter ($3.60) in Race 4 and Well Connected ($17.80) in Race 6.
