The 20-cent Rainbow 6 went unsolved Sunday at Pimlico Race Course, raising the Maryland state record jackpot carryover to $833,252.12 for Monday’s special eight-race program.
First race post time is 12:40 p.m.
Maryland Jockey Club host and handicapper Tim Tullock has a best bet and longshot for the sequence:
The Rainbow 6 begins with the third race, a claiming event at six furlongs for 3-year-olds and up, and leading trainer Claudio Gonzalez will send out the 9-5 favorite in Super C Racing Inc.’s Company Clown. The 4-year-old, who won last time out, gets the services once again of jockey Victor Carrasco.
The fourth race features 3-year-old maidens at a mile on the turf. Gold Square LLC’s Momza is a tepid 3-1 choice for trainer Kelly Breen. Flight Map goes out for trainer Kelly Rubley while Shug McGaughey will send out Corrado. A maiden claimer for 3-year-old fillies at six furlongs makes up the fifth race and Ronomes is a strong 7-5 favorite off a pair of second place finishes for trainer Robert Vukelic.
The sixth race, scheduled at five furlongs on the turf for Maryland-bred or sired fillies and mares, is a wide-open event with R. Larry Johnson’s homebred Spun Glass a 3-1 favorite. Sick Pack Sara, entered for the main track only, would be seeking her fourth consecutive victory if the race is taken off the turf.
Shane’s Jewel is a 7-5 favorite in the seventh race, a 1 1/16-mile allowance optional claiming event for 3-year-olds and up. Non Stop Stable’s Tappin Cat gets a return trip to Pimlico with jockey Sheldon Russell after a fifth-place finish last time out. The Rainbow 6 ends with the eighth race, a mile claiming event on the turf for fillies and mares, drew a field of 10 including Bellsinthewood, making her second start in the U.S. and first since October of 2019.
