Gulfstream Rainbow 6; Keeneland Opening Day

Matthew Stockman

The Gulfstream Park Rainbow 6 features a $1.9 million carryover on the final day of the 2012/2013 meeting. Also, Keeneland opens their 2013 Spring meet this afternoon.

It's the last day of the 2012/2013 meet at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Florida, which means the Rainbow 6 carryover in is a mandatory payouts situation. The carryover into today's final card is $1.961 million, and there is likely to be a whole lot more cash dumped into the kitty by the time the sequence kicks off with a Maiden Special Weight in race 8., Below is the races in today's sequence along with the post times:

And just to throw a wrench into the final Rainbow 6 of the meet, Gulfstream has moved the turf races to the main track. (Really? You can't run on soft ground on the last day of the meet? Is there a reason we can't run turf races in this country on anything but firm/good grounds? I just don't get it.)

UPDATED: The final Rainbow 6 sequence of the meet pays $4,234.01. In addition to the $1.961 million carryover, players poured an additional $5.2 million into the pot. The final Pick 5 payout? $3.774.10 for a $0.50 play.

Not to be outdone by the activity at Gulfstream Park, Keeneland kicks off their 2013 Spring meet today with the opening day card featuring the Grade 3 Transylvania Stakes for three-year-old colts on the grass. Brown Almighty, a token contender on the Derby trail earlier this winter, attempts to get his career back on track with a return to the lawn. Up With the Birds is the 7/2 morning line favorite after scoring three straight victories including a win in the ungraded Black Gold at the Fair Grounds over soft ground on March 2.

Todd Pletcher has a nice War Front colt in the mix, 6-Jack Milton (4/1); he's running in his first stakes race after a couple of efforts over the Gulfstream turf this winter.

I like 4-Bambazonki (5/1) a lot in this spot -- he ran well at Keeneland last fall and he was a good second to Charming Kitten in the Kittens Joy at Gulfstream on Jan. 20.
