By Gulfstream Press Staff – Four stakes races will highlight a mandatory payout of the 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool Saturday, Aug. 29 at Gulfstream Park.
Saturday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will begin with the seventh race and include the $200,000 FTBOA Florida Sire Stakes Affirmed for 2-year-olds, the $200,000 FTBOA Florida Sire Stakes Susan’s Girl for 2-year-old fillies, the $75,000 Proud Man and $75,000 Sharp Susan.
The Affirmed and Susan’s Girl will both be contested at seven furlongs on the main track. The Proud Man and Sharp Susan will feature 2-year-olds on a mile turf course.
The Rainbow 6 pool will be guaranteed at $450,000 when racing resumes Thursday with a noon post time. The popular 20-cent wager has gone unsolved for eight consecutive race days.
The Rainbow 6 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.
