Travers Day Advance Wagering Available Friday At Gulfstream
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL –The 20-cent Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot pool will stand at $419,278.16 for Friday’s program at Gulfstream Park after the popular multi-race wager went unsolved Thursday for the 23rd consecutive program.
Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $15,115.48 Thursday.
The Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot is paid out only 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.
The Rainbow 6 jackpot was last cracked on July16, when a unique ticket paid $164,483.32 after the innovative wager had gone unsolved for eight racing programs.
Friday’s six-race sequence will span Races 5-10.
There will also be a $20,682.30 carryover for Friday's 50-cent Pick 5, which will span races 6-10.
