A mandatory payout of the 20-cent Rainbow 6 pool will highlight the closing-day program at Gulfstream Park West Saturday.
A jackpot pool of $347.136.72 will be carried over to Saturday’s card after the popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the 17th consecutive racing program Friday.
Gulfstream hosts and analysts Jason Blewitt and Ron Nicoletti look at the races in Saturday’s sequence, and they have a difference of opinion on some of them.
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.
Mandatory payouts of the Late Pick 5 and the last-race Super Hi-5 are also scheduled.
Saturday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 5-10.
Zayas (Jockey) Crichton (Trainer) Seek to Wrap Up Titles
Edgard Zayas heads into Saturday’s final card at Gulfstream West with a 41-38 edge over Emisael Jaramillo in the jockey’s race. Zayas has been named to ride 10 horses, including two main-track-only entrants, Saturday. Jaramillo is scheduled to ride in seven races, including an also-eligible entrant. Miguel Vasquez, who took closing weekend off, completed the meet with 39 winners.
Rohan Crichton, who is seeking his first U.S. training title, holds a 19-16 edge defending champion Saffie Joseph Jr., going into Saturday’s card. Crichton has two horses entered for the last GPW program, while Joseph has three horses entered. Antonio Sano, who has 15 winners, has five horses entered Saturday.
Crichton, who saddled a pair of winners Friday, also holds a 6-5 edge over Paradise Farms Corp. for the owner’s title.
