The 20-cent Rainbow 6 pool will be guaranteed at $2.5 million Saturday at Gulfstream Park.
The popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the 30th consecutive racing day of the 2019-2020 Championship Meet Friday, when multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $13,234.06. .
The Rainbow 6 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 day's pool goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners, while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool.
Saturday's Rainbow sequence will span Races 6-11 and will include the $100,000 Tropical Turf (G3) in Race 10 and the $150,000 Marshua's River (G3) in Race 8.
Kiaran McLaughlin-trained A Thread of Blue, who was on the list of reserve invitees for the $1 million Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational (G1) Jan. 25, is the 5-2 morning favorite for the Tropical Turf, a mile turf stakes for 4-year-olds and up. The 4-year-old son of Hard Spun is undefeated in three starts over the Gulfstream Turf, including a triumph in the Palm Beach (G3) last March.
Andina Del Sur is the 2-1 morning-line favorite for the Marshua's River, a 1 1/16-mile turf stakes for older fillies and mares. The Tom Albertrani-trained 5-year-old daughter of Giant's Causeway will seek her third victory in her last four races.
Who's Hot: Apprentice Cristian Torres doubled aboard Lady Noy ($12) in Race 1 and Two Cents Worth ($15.40) in Race 5.
Paco Lopez also rode a pair of winners, scoring aboard Castagno ($7) in Race 3 and Ekhtibaar ($14.40) in Race 9.
