The Rainbow 6 had a carryover of $266,566.95 going in Sunday. There was $2,077,971 of new money wagered in the pool Sunday.
The jackpot pool 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 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 whole pool is paid out to the bettor or bettors holding tickets with the most winners in the six-race sequence.
There will be a $100,000 guaranteed pool in the Rainbow 6 when racing resumes Wednesday as well as a Super Hi-5 carryover of $6,357.54.
Maiden Fillies in the Spotlight
A trio of maiden races for 3-year-old fillies highlighted some of Gulfstream’s Sunday card.
Gary and Mary West’s Slumber Party, a 3-year-old daughter of Malibu Moon, made an impressive debut Sunday, going seven furlongs and winning by 7 ½ lengths in 1:23.05. The filly is trained by Kelly Breen. Another 3-year-old filly breaking her maiden was Joy of Painting, a daughter of Munnings trained by Rusty Arnold, racing on turf for the first time in four starts and covering a mile on a firm course in 1:36.10. Tabor Hall, a daughter of Candy Ride trained by Ken McPeek, broke her maiden in her sixth attempt and her first trip over turf. Tabor Hall covered a 1 1/16 mile course in 1:44.75 while winning by 1 ½ lengths.
WHO’S HOT: Tyler Gaffalione, who had four winners on Pegasus Day, stayed hot with three winners Sunday. Gaffalione won aboard Think It Thru ($4.40) in the second, King Ottokar ($6.80) in the sixth and Royal Meghan ($3.20) in the ninth.
