Favorites Win First Two Legs of GP Rainbow 6

There are  four  races left, numbers  nine through  twelve, on Monday's special Memorial Day card at Gulfstream. 

Those  are the four  remaining  races in the Rainbow  6 and in the Late Pick 5. If you had the favorites in those races, you  are alive  on your  tickets.

The carryover  coming in on the Rainbow 6  was $79,394.  Bettors  added $189,871 to that pool  for that  20-cent only bet.

Wagering was $224,865 on the Late Pick 5--a 50-cent minium bet.

The eighth race winner was Midtown Rose (5). It was the $600,000 Queen Mother at seven furlongs on dirt for  3-YOs  that have  raced at least once for a claiming price  of $50,00 or less.

Midtown Rose won in 1:23.60 on the track listed as fast, with Irad Ortiz Jr. riding for trainer  Saffie Joseph Jr.  She was the 9-5 favorite.

The  seventh race  winner was the 2-1favorite Itsmyluckycharm (2) by  a head over Bister Peacock (12) at  5-1. 

That race was the $60,000 Mrs. President at  one mile  on turf for 3-year-old  fillies that  have  raced for a claiming price of  $35,000 or less at east once in their careers.

Eddie Plesa Jr. trains Itsmyluckychrm and also trained his  sire Itsmyluckyday, the winner of the 2013 Holy Bull Stakes at  Gullfstream.

Itsmyluckycharm won Monday's race in 1:35.91  on the course listed as firm, with Joe  Bravo riding. It was her fifth win in nine career starts.

She is a Kentucky-bred  homebred of Eddie  Plesa  Racing Stable.

Laurie Plesa, Eddie's  wife, is the owner of Itsmyluckycharm and with Trilogy  Stables was co-owner of Itsmyluckyday.
