Mandatory Rainbow 6 Payout Yields Multiple $6,234 Payoffs; Zayas (Jockey), Crichton (Trainer) Claim GPW Titles

November 29, 2020

Gulfstream Park’s Championship Meet Kicks off Wednesday

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – A mandatory payout of the 20-cent Rainbow 6 yielded multiple $6,234.36 payoffs Saturday on closing-day of the 2020 meet at Gulfstream Park West.

A jackpot pool of $347,136.72 was carried over to Saturday’s card, generating a handle of $2,608,241 on the popular multi-race wager.

The Rainbow 6 had gone unsolved for 17 consecutive programs.

The Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot is usually 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 usually goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners, while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool. However, on mandatory-payout days, the entire pool is paid out to the bettor or bettors with the most winners in the six-race sequence.

The Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed for $50,000 on Wednesday’s opening day of the 2020-2021 Championship Meet at Gulfstream Park.

Zayas (Jockey), Crichton (Trainer) Claiming GPW Titles

Edgard Zayas wrapped up the riding title at Gulfstream Park West Saturday, riding three winners on the closing-day program.

Zayas, who captured the Spring/Summer Meet at Gulfstream Park, prevailed over Emisael Jaramillo, 44-40, while regaining the Gulfstream Park West title he had won in 2018.

“It’s a special one at Gulfstream Park West, especially since it’s the last one and at the track where I started in 2012,” Zayas said. “It’s one I was looking forward to winning, to be honest.”

His ride aboard the ultra-talented I Get It ($5) in the Race 3 feature placed an exclamation mark on the 27-year-old’s most recent title success. The Ron Spatz-trained daughter of Get Stormy surged from well off the pace at the top of the stretch to score going away by three lengths in the 1 1/16-mile optional claiming allowance for 2-year-old fillies on turf. It was the third consecutive open-lengths victory for I Get It, who defeated colts by 3 ¾ lengths at Gulfstream Park West Oct. 18 after rolling to a five-length maiden score at Gulfstream Park Aug. 28.

Rohan Crichton captured his first training title, edging defending champion Saffie Joseph Jr., 19-17.

A longtime owner in Jamaica, Crichton, who has been training in the U.S. since 2013, also won the owner’s title with six winners.
