A mandatory payout of the 20-cent Rainbow 6 pool will be held Saturday at Gulfstream Park, offering the potential for a truly life-changing payoff.

The entire pool, including a carryover jackpot, will be paid out to all those holding tickets with the most winners. Should the Rainbow 6 remain unsolved Friday, a pool of several million dollars is expected be up for grabs. (There will be a mandatory Rainbow 6 payout Saturday even if the jackpot is hit Friday, with the pool measuring
 $1,413,193 entering the card).

The Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 7-12 on Saturday’s card and will feature the $100,000 El Prado in Race 11. Turf Stable, LLC’s Mr. Cub and Three Diamonds Farm’s Hembree headline the 13-horse field for the 7 ½-furlong turf stakes for older horses. 

The Ian Wilkes-trained Mr. Cub fell just a half-length short of holding off Bricks and Mortar in a Dec. 22 optional claiming allowance race prior to the Chad Brown trainee’s triumph in the $7 million Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational (G1) Jan. 26.

The Mike Maker-trained Hembree captured the Nearctic (G2) at Woodbine three starts back.

The El Prado will be preceded on Saturday’s card by a 1 1/16-mile optional claiming allowance for 3-year-olds in Race 10. Sagamore Farm, LLC and WinStar Farm, LLC’s Global Campaign, a most impressive debut winner at Gulfstream Jan. 5, is set to return to action. The son of Curlin captured a seven-furlong maiden race by a going-away 5 ¾ lengths while wrapped up by jockey Luis Saez.

Stronach Stables’ Awesome D J, who won his Dec. 7 debut by nearly six lengths at Laurel, is set to make his first start for trainer James Jerkens in Saturday’s Race 10.

Saturday’s Rainbow 6 sequence, which will be kicked in Race 7 with a maiden claiming event with a 14-horse field, will also feature and optional claiming allowance at a mile on turf in Race 8 and a pair of maiden special weight races at one mile on turf in Races 9 and 12.
