Rainbow 6, Royal Delta Coming Up at GP

The seventh race is coming up on Gulfstream Park's twelve-race Saturday card. 

The seventh, ninth and tenth races are on the turf, which is listed as Good.  The dirt  is listed as Fast. Skies are partly cloudy at Gulfstream in Hallandale Beach, Fla., and forecasts call for little chance of rain.

This link to the Equibase Web site has the Gulfstream Saturday entries. It has click-ons for handicapping material.  Some is free. Some, including Past Performances, is at cost.

The Rainbow 6 has a carryover of $281,967.  The 20 cents per combination-only bets is on races seven to twelve with the sequence scheduled to start at 3:10 p.m.

 The Rainbow 6 includes the $100,000 Royal Delta1(Grade 3) at 1 1/16 miles on dirt for  fillies and mares, 3-YO and up.  It is the 11th race, with scheduled post at 5:16 p.m.

Eres Tu, a 5-year-old daughter of Malibu Moon who is undefeated since returning from an 18-month layoff and joining trainer Arnaud Delacour’s stable, will seek her second straight graded-stakes triumph in the Royal  Delta.

On Dec. 26, she won the Allaire DuPont Stakes (Grade 3) at 1 1/8 miles on dirt at Laurel Park.

The other Royal Delta favorite  is Mrs.  Danvers , who on Nov. 27 led at every call in winning the Comely (Grade 3)  at Aqueduct. She is trained by Shug McGaughey.

Irad Ortiz Jr. will ride Eres Tu and his younger brother Jose will ride Mrs. Danvers.

The field also has Dream Marie and Bajan Girl, the second and third place finishers in the one mile Rampart (Grade 3) at Gulfstream on Dec. 12.

An optional claiming allowance for 3-year-olds on turf will kick off the Rainbow 6 in Race 7. Zippy Baby, who finished a troubled second in the same condition, will make his first start for trainer Kelly Breen after being claimed for $50,000. Honorable and Richiesgotgame, who of whom experienced bumping in the same race, will clash with Zippy Baby again.

A 1 1/8-mile maiden special weight race for 3-year-olds follows in Race 8, Todd Pletcher-trained Ghazaaly, a $1.05 million yearling purchase by Shadwell Stable, will stretch out after closing well to finish a well-beaten third to highly regarded Prevalence in his seven-furlong debut Jan. 23. Kenny McPeek-trained Swingman, who finished third at shorter distances in his two starts last year, is set for his 2021 debut. A full field of $20,000 non-winners-of-two claimers has been assembled for Race 9 at a mile on turf.

Shug McGaughey-trained Dreams of Tomorrow, who broke his maiden at Aqueduct in December, is set to make his 2021 debut in Race 10, a mile optional claiming allowance for older horses on turf.  Ian Wilkes-trained Tulfarris, a multiple stakes-placed son of Zoffany in Europe, is slated to make his U.S. debut in the race.

A full field of $12,500 non-winners-of three claimers will run 1 1/16 miles on turf in Race 12.
