Gulfstream: Rainbow 6 pays $48,881 on closing day


HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. -  The 2016-17 Gulfstream Park championship meeting went out with a bang on Sunday for those fortunate and skillful enough to correctly select the final six winners on the card and collect a 20-cent Rainbow 6 payoff of $48,881.88.

A total of $7,336,992 was added to a carryover of nearly $2 million in the Rainbow 6, which had gone unsolved for 27 consecutive programs. The Rainbow 6 had last been hit on Feb. 23 for a payoff of $324,179.  There was a mandatory payout of the pool on closing day. 

The Rainbow 6 races were won by Mbrace Grace ($20.20); Adventist ($7); Japonski ($10.40); Cindy’s Candy ($8.40); Hampstead Heath ($19.60), and Good and Proper ($13.60).  Luca Panici and apprentice jockey Carlos Hernandez each won two of the six races in the Rainbow 6 sequence. None of the six winners were post-time favorites.
