Gulfstream’s Rainbow 6 Carryover Builds To $1.2 Million For Sunday Card

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 saw its carryover jackpot swell to $1,224,648.63 after going unsolved for the 28th consecutive racing day Saturday at Gulfstream Park.

First race post time for Sunday's 11-race card is 1:15 p.m.

A total of $268,548 was bet into the popular multi-race wager Saturday on top of a carryover of $1,160,216.98 from Friday's program. Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $7,278.02.

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 day's pool goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners, while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool.

Sunday's Rainbow 6 sequence spans Races 6-11 and features three turf races that drew a total of 42 horses, an average of 14 starters per race.

Matalona Thoroughbreds' Grade 2 winner Stormy Embrace made a triumphant return to the races with a 10 ½-length romp in the $100,000 Musical Romance Stakes for Florida-bred fillies and mares 3 and up. The winning time for seven furlongs was 1:21.51 over a fast main track.

Winner of the 2018 Princess Rooney (G2) last summer at Gulfstream, Kathleen O'Connell-trained Stormy Embrace was second by a neck in the Sugar Swirl (G3) and third in the Hurricane Bertie (G3), the latter Jan. 26, in her most recent start.
