Harvey Wallbanger Wins Holy Bull; Rainbow 6 Carryover Passes $1.1 Million

Harvey Wallbanger, at 29-1, rallied from last place after a half mile and won Saturday’s $350,000 Holy Bull Stakes (Grade 2) at Gulfstream Park.

Harvey Wallbanger beat the late-running Everlast, a 129-1 shot, by a length in the 1 1/16 mile dirt race for 3-year-olds.

Previously unbeaten Maximus Mischief, the 4-5 favorite, finished third by another neck.  He was followed by Epic Dreamer, at12-1, and Mihos, at 2-1, in the nine-horse field.

Harvey Wallbanger, in his stakes debut, won in 1:43.69 on the track listed as Fast.

Brian Hernandez Jr. rode Harvey Wallbanger for trainer Ken McPeek and an ownership group headed by Harold Lerner.

The Holy Bull was a first-round points scoring race for spots in the 1 ¼ mile Kentucky Derby (Grade 1) that will be on May 4 at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky.

Harvey Wallbanger earned ten points. The second through fourth place finishers earned four, two and one points respectively.

Payoffs for $2 bets were: $2,203.40 for the exacta; $12,234 for the trifecta; and $101,248.60 for the superfecta.

*On Sunday, Gulfstream will have a Rainbow 6 carryover of $1,161,266.06

First post is 12:00 p.m. for a 12-race card.

The Rainbow 6 is on races seven through 12, with the sequence scheduled to start at 3:04 p.m.

  The carryover has grown because Gulfstream has gone 19 straight race days without the jackpot payoff requirement of just one ticket  with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.

On Saturday there were 13 tickets with all six winners. Each was paid $21,285.96 on the 20-cent only bet.

Bettors added $494,283 to the Rainbow 6.
Of that Gulfstream took out its standard 20 percent, divided 56 percent  among winning tickets and added 24 percent to the carryover.
