Rainbow Payout Surpasses $100,000
Saturday, February 9, 2019

    HALLANDALE BEACH - The Mandatory payout of Gulfstream Park’s 20-cent Rainbow 6 Saturday, which reached $8.2 million, returned $100,919 to multiple tickets with all six winners. It wasn’t an easy ticket to hit.

    The Rainbow 6 got off to a surprise when Papa Y, a 50-1 shot who had failed to hit the board in four previous tries, went wire-to-wire and returned $118. After the 12-1 Trilby ($26.60) won the second leg, there were only 22,129 live tickets remaining.

    There was a $1,509,922 million carryover going into the day and $6,754,787 of new money wagered Saturday.  

Global Campaign Leads Promising 3-Year-Olds 

    There were several races featuring 3-year-olds Saturday, but none were more impressive than Sagamore Farm LLC’s and WinStar Farm LLC’s Global Campaign, who drew off from Gr. 1-placed Standard Deviation down the stretch to win going 1 1/16 miles in 1:44.29. Trained by Stanley Hough and ridden by leading jockey Luis Saez, Global Campaign’s victory followed an equally impressive winning debut here Jan. 5 at seven furlongs.

    “He’s a talented horse,” Hough said. “Obviously, you don’t know the first time two turns for a lot of them, but, gosh, he handled it well.” So what’s next for the undefeated son of Curlin who brought $250,000 at auction? “We don’t know,” Hough said. “Hopefully, it will be one of the many races coming up. The Fountain of Youth is a possibility.”

    In other races featuring 3-year-olds, Mathis Stable LLC’s Last Judgement, a $300,000 son of Congrats, broke his maiden at second asking. After being a bit difficult to load, the Todd Pletcher-trained colt won by a length going six furlongs in 1:10.13 under John Velazquez.

   Pletcher and Velazquez were back in the winner’s circle some 60 minutes later with Cheyenne Stables LLC’s Angelia. The daughter of Curlin, stretching out around two turns for the first time, won with 1 1/16 miles in 1:46.95. It was Angelia’s fourth start.
