HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – With Saturday’s mandatory-payout looming, the 20-cent Rainbow 6 went unsolved for the 27th consecutive racing day Thursday at Gulfstream Park, leaving a carryover jackpot of $848,456.20 for Friday’s twilight card.
First-race post time for Friday’s nine-race program is set for 2:15 p.m.
Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $2,176.20 Thursday. There will also be a Super Hi 5 carryover Friday of $4,491.85.
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.
On mandatory payout days, the carryover jackpot is completely disbursed and shared by all bettors holding tickets with the most winners.
Should the Rainbow go unsolved on Friday, the carryover jackpot could approach $1 million for Saturday’s Summit of Speed program that will be co-headlined by the $250,000 Princess Rooney (G2), a Breeders’ Cup ‘Win and You’re In’ race, and the $250,000 Smile Sprint (G3).
