HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – The Mandatory payout of Gulfstream Park’s 20-cent Rainbow 6 Saturday, which reached $8.2 million, returned $100,919.88 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 longshot who had failed to hit the board in four previous tries, went gate-to-wire and returned $118. After the 12-1 longshot 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. There was $6,754,787 of new money wagered Saturday.
The carryover jackpot is only paid out when there is a single unique ticket sold with all six winners. On days when there is no unique ticket, 70 percent of that day’s pool goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners, while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool.
Global Campaign Leads Promising 3-Year-Olds Saturday
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 Grade 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 Saturday’s 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 (G2) is a possibility.”
In other races featuring 3-year-olds, Mathis Stable LLC’s 3-year-old colt 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 jockey 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 at 1 1/16 miles in 1:46.95. It was Angelia’s fourth start.
Juddmonte Farm’s homebred Clause ran down Can’t Buy Me Love down the stretch to break her maiden at first asking. Trained by Chad Brown and ridden by Irad Ortiz Jr., Clause, a 3-year-old daughter of Speightstown, covered a firm mile course in 1:34.86.
