Gulfstream Park’s Mandatory Rainbow Pick 6 Jackpot is expected to balloon to over $6 million on Saturday and the key race to the Pick 6 sequence is the Sunshine Forever Stakes. Saturday’s feature at Gulfstream Park, is also the lone stakes race taking place in America.
As a result, the 1 1/16th-mile grass event drew a full, accomplished field of 12 (including one MTO). Post time for the Sunshine Forever, Race 9 of 12 on the day, is 4:59 pm ET. The race can be seen on NCBSN and TVG.
6 HALLADAY (4-1)* appears to be the speed of the race, with #3 EL TORMENTA and #12 WAR OF WILL the only two likely to apply early pressure. However, the former sheds blinkers for this while the latter will expend plenty of energy from the far outside post. HALLADAY has shown an affinity for this course, winning a salty allowance/optional claiming event here while just one start removed from a victory in the Tropical Park Derby. The Todd Pletcher trainee has demonstrated ability to win up front or stalk if necessary, so that gives Luis Saez tactical options.
9 SOCIAL PARANOIA (3-1)* completes a strong one-two punch for the Pletcher barn here. He closed into a strong pace to win the Grade III Appleton over this course last time out, his second straight victory following his Dueling Grounds Derby triumph at Kentucky Downs last September. However, SOCIAL PARANOIA getting the inferior jockey assignment of the two Pletcher trainees (Edgard Zayas compared to Saez on HALLADAY) does not inspire confidence.
11 ADMISSION OFFICE (5-2, morning-line favorite)* should be rolling late under Joel Rosario. He hung late in the Grade II Mac Diarmida at Gulfstream last time out but cuts back and drops in class in the Sunshine Forever. However, ADMISSION OFFICE is a deep closer and could be hurt by a lack of pace in this one.
The play ($40 budget): Bet a $14 exacta 6 with 9,11 and a $2 exacta box 6/9/11
