The 20-cent Rainbow 6 went unsolved for a seventh consecutive racing day Friday at Gulfstream Park, increasing the carryover jackpot to $161,875.52 for Saturday's Thoroughbred racing card (First-race post time: 12:45 p.m.)
Multiple tickets with all six winners Friday were each worth $1,953.20.
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 days' pool goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners, while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool.
Saturday's six-race sequence will span Races 7-12, featuring a stakes-quality mile optional claiming allowance on turf in Race 10. Multiple graded-stakes winner and Grade 1 stakes-placed Thewayiam is scheduled to make her first start since finishing off the board in the Lake Placid (G2) at Saratoga last August. The Graham Motion-trained 4-year-old filly, who finished second in the Belmont Oaks Invitational (G1) in her prior start, captured the Sweetest Chant (G3) and the Herecomesthebride (G3) at Gulfstream during the 2017-2018 Championship Meet. Christophe Clement-trained Princesa Coqueta, a Group 1 winner in Chile, will seek to rebound from an off-the-board finish in her March 7 U.S. debut at Gulfstream, in which she was subjected to a 'solid bump' at the start. Stakes winners Miss Mo Mentum, American Frolic and Vow to Recover are also entered.
The Rainbow 6 sequence will be anchored by a 1 1/16-mile maiden special weight event on turf in Race 12 that drew a field of well-connected 3-year-old fillies, including Todd Pletcher-trained Valiance, a debuting daughter of Tapit who brought $650,000 at the 2017 Fast-Tipton Saratoga sale.
There will also be a Super Hi-5 carryover of $1,492.36 heading into Saturday's program.
