HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – The 20-cent Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot at Gulfstream Park swelled to $2,455,348.81 for Thursday’s card after going unsolved for the 28th consecutive racing day Sunday.
A total of $555,302 was bet Sunday into the popular multi-race wager, which began with a carryover of $2,322,112.61 from Saturday’s card. Multiple tickets with all six winners Sunday were each worth $1,124,52.
A mandatory payout of the Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot has been scheduled for next Saturday’s $1 million Xpressbet.com Florida Derby (G1) program. There will also be mandatory payouts for the Late Pick 5 and last-race Super Hi-5.
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 days’ pool goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners, while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool.
Since the 2018-19 Championship Meet kicked off Dec. 1, the Rainbow 6 has been hit seven times, most recently for a $227,505.88 payout Feb. 15.
Who’s Hot: Luis Saez continued his recent hot streak with a three-win day Sunday to close to within one win of leading rider Irad Ortiz Jr., who rode one winner. The defending two-time Championship Meet titlist scored aboard Dizzy Gillespie ($3.80) in Race 5, Alphadar ($4.80) in Race 7, and King Leo ($5.80) in Race 9.
