Gulfstream Rainbow Nears $2 Million

9 Jan

Going into Thursday’s program, the Rainbow 6 Jackpot stands at $1.86 million. The Jackpot pays when there is one single winning combination in the 20-cent Pick 6.

On Saturday, Pleasanton OTB will pick up the Gulfstream Park card in progress, starting with its 4th race at 10:33am. The Rainbow 6 will be held over races 6-11, starting at 11:32am. Saturday’s card features a pair of Grade III races for older horses on turf, the $150,000 Marshua’s River (F&M) going 1 and 1/16 miles and $100,000 Tropical Turf at a flat mile.

With the $3 Million Pegasus Invitational just two weeks away, keep an eye on a mandatory payout announcement for the Rainbow 6, as Gulfstream typically likes to force it out on marquee race days, or the Sunday after.

Pigskin Playoffs Pot Hits $400

Two players made it to the football round of the Pigskin and Ponies Playoffs Pick 4 contest last week, but were eliminated when Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings upset the New Orleans Saints, 26-20, in overtime. That means $400 will be on the line this weekend on a pair of races this Saturday and the Sunday Division Round NFL playoff games.
