Bettors this Saturday night are in for a little extra of a treat as Churchill Downs has announced a partial force-out of it's Single 6 Jackpot Pick 6. There will be a $300,000 mandatory payout of the popular 20-cent bet, which should be an attractive wagering opportunity for customers.
First post for Churchill Downs' 'Downs After Dark' card on Saturday is 6:00PM ET and the Single 6 Jackpot kicks off with Race 4, at 7:26PM ET.
Among the most popular wagering options in the Single 6 Jackpot will come in the final leg, Race 9, as Kentucky Derby alum, Solomini, and Florida Derby third-place finisher, Mississippi, run as a coupled-entry that sits at 3/5 on the morning line in a non-winners-of-one allowance contest. Even if one of the two horses scratch, the other will be incredibly difficult to beat.
Not included in the Single 6 Jackpot are a pair of stakes races on the card, the Grade 3, $100,000 Aristides Stakes (Race 10, 10:42PM ET) and the $75,000 Mighty Beau Stakes (Race 11, 11:10PM ET).
From Churchill Downs News Release:
The Single 6 Jackpot, which debuted at Churchill Downs during the 2015 Fall Meet, is a minimum 20-cent wager with a low 15-percent takeout, one of the lowest multi-race wager takeout rates in American racing. The Single 6 Jackpot is paid only if there is a single winning wager with six winners placed at the required minimum bet value. If there are multiple winning wagers with six winners in the six-race sequence, 90 percent of the net money wagering into the pool is paid out, and the remaining 10 percent is carried to the Single 6 Jackpot. If there are no tickets will all six winners, 100 percent of the pool is carried to the Single 6 Jackpot.
