Gulfstream Rainbow 6 Opener Won By 3-5 Favorite

Yolanda's Pride (2), the 3-5  favorite, rallied down the stretch and beat Maries Melody (5) by a length in Friday's fourth race at Gulfstream Park.

It was the opening leg of the Rainbow 6, with a coming-in  carryover of $314,426 on the 20 cents per combination-only bet.

Bettors added $145,457 to the pool--in a prelude for Saturday  when Gulfstream will have a mandatory payout of the Rainbow 6 jackpot, regardless of the number of tickets with all six winners.

Gulfstream has guaranteed that the pool for Friday will be at least $500,000 if there is just one ticket with all six winners.

The combination adds up to about $460.000. Thus Gulfstream would need to put in about $40,000 if there is a single winning ticket.

If there are multiple tickets with six winners, Gulfstream will add about $34,000 (24 percent of the day's bet) to the carryover.

That would leave a carryover of about $350,000 for Saturday. Gulfstream history indicates that would lead to $3 million or more in bets on the Rainbow 6.

Friday's Rainbow 6 opener was a $40,000 claiming race at one mile on turf for fillies and mares 3-YO and up.

Yolanda's Pride won in 1:34.79 on the course listed as Firm, with Edgard Zayas riding for trainer Steve Klesaris.
