HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – The 20-cent Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot at Gulfstream Park went unsolved for the 26th consecutive racing program Sunday, producing a carryover jackpot of $801,668.76 for Thursday’s program.
Multiple tickets with six winners Saturday were each worth $2,917.40.
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, 70 percent of that day’s pool goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners, while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool.
There was $755,719 carryover jackpot going into Sunday’s six-race sequence that spanned Races 7-12, generating a handle of $191,508 on the popular multi-race wager.
Spring Meet Jockey and Trainer Races Down to the Wire
The jockey and trainer races are both going down to the wire for Gulfstream’s Spring Meet, which concludes with Saturday’s Summit of Speed program.
Defending Spring Meet champion Tyler Gaffalione tops the jockey standings with 59 wins with four other riders in hot pursuit. Emisael Jaramillo ranks second with 56 wins, once more than Edgard Zayas and Miguel Vasquez, who have both ridden 55 winners. Nik Juarez ranks fifth with 53 trips to the winner’s circle.
As hotly contested as the jockey race is, the race for the training title is even more competitive with eight trainers being separated by one win. Victor Barboza Jr. and Oscar Gonzalez share a tenuous lead with 16 winners each, only one more than defending champion Todd Pletcher, Stanley Gold, Ralph Nicks, Armando De la cerda, Antonio Sano and Ralph Ziadie.
