The 20-cent Rainbow 6 went unsolved on Sunday's Clasico Internacional del Caribe program at Gulfstream Park, growing the carryover jackpot to $250,366.83 for Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Multiple tickets with all six winners Sunday each returned $11,806.40.

Sunday's Rainbow 6 was capped by Venezuela's The Brother Slew ($92.80), ridden by Gulfstream-based jockey Paco Lopez, springing a 45-1 upset in the event's headliner, the $300,000 Clasico del Caribe for 3-year-olds.

Lopez finished with three wins on the day, taking the opener on Avenida Manana ($5.40) for trainer David Fawkes and the $86,500 Copa Dama del Caribe with Genubi Asquifar ($11), as Mexican horses swept the Clasico's four undercard stakes.

Wednesday's Rainbow 6 spans Races 5-10. First-race post time is 12:35 p.m.

Live racing returns to Gulfstream Park Wednesday, Dec. 11 with a strong 10-race program highlighted by back-to-back maiden special weight events for 2-year-olds, one each on dirt and turf.

Wednesday's fourth race is a seven-furlong main track sprint that drew eight 2-year-old fillies led by Famousstyle Stable's Velvet Crush, a juvenile daughter of leading sire Tapit who fetched $450,000 at Fasig-Tipton's select yearling sale last August at Saratoga. Making her fourth start, she was second in a one-mile maiden special weight hta tcame off the turf Oct. 27.

Also in the field is Leverett Miller and Linda Miller's So Dear, a second-time starter trained by David Fawkes who is a half-sister to Silver Wagon, a Grade 1 winner of $1.1 million in purses, and multiple graded-stakes placed Rehoboth, who won 16 races and $727,215 in purse earnings.

Drawing the far outside post is Gary and Mary West's Fashion Babe, a homebred daughter of Hall of Famer Curlin trained by Jason Servis making her fourth career start.

Wednesday's fifth race going one mile on the turf course attracted a dozen 2-year-olds, half of them costing six figures, topped by Gary Barber's Maker of an Empire, a $410,000 son of 2003 Belmont Stakes (G1) winner Empire Maker who finished off the board in his Sept. 21 unveiling on the Gulfstream turf.

Waterford Stable's Summer to Remember, from the barn of 15-time Championship Meet leading trainer Todd Pletcher, made his debut Aug. 10 at Saratoga and ran second behind Decorated Invader, who would go on to capture the Summer (G1) at Woodbine in his subsequent start and run fourth in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf (G1).

A pair of homebreds, Godolphin's Beachwalker trained by Kiaran McLaughlin and Live Oak Plantation's Souper Energizer from trainer Mike Trombetta, are also prominent among the entries.
