LAUREL, MD – Live racing returns to Laurel Park Friday, March 23 with a jackpot carryover of $109,253.01 in the 20-cent Rainbow 6 after the popular multi-race wager went unsolved during Sunday’s program.
Four horses were live to take down the jackpot heading into the ninth-race finale, won by even-money favorite Punch Nephew ($4). A total of $44,872 was bet into the Rainbow 6, adding to a carryover of $94,895.62 from Saturday’s stakes-filled St. Patrick’s Day program.
Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $5,384.02.
The carryover jackpot is only paid out when there is a single unique ticket sold with all six winners. On days when there is no unique ticket, 60 percent of that day’s pool goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners while 40 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool.
Friday’s Rainbow 6 covers Races 4-9, highlighted by a $40,000 maiden special weight for fillies and mares 3 and up going six furlongs in Race 7.
There will also be a carryover of $2,243.49 in the $1 Super Hi-5 for Friday’s opener. First race post time is 1:10 p.m.
