First Illusion, 6-1, Wins Rainbow 6 Opener

First Illusion, at 6-1, won Gulfstream's fourth race on Sunday to get the Rainbow 6 off to a non-chalky start.
Bettors added $60,789 to the pool.  The carryover going in was $13,192.

If there is a single-ticket jackpot winner, the payoff will be about $62,000. If there are multiple tickets with all six winners, they would divide about $34,000 and about $15,000 would be added to the carryover.

First Illusion won by about a half-length over 12-1 shot Tizjet.  Reimburse, the 8-5 favorite, finished third in the tight finish. 

Tyler Gaffalione, rider of Reimburse, lodged a claim of foul against First Illusion for alleged interference in the stretch.  But stewards did not allow the claim.

First Illusion, a 3-year-old filly, won the 7 1/2 furlong on turf optional claiming race in 1:29.18.  She is trained by Agustin Bezara.
