Heading into the final race, there were seven horses eligible to produce a $564,395.70 jackpot payoff. There were unique tickets sold that included Nos. 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 9, in the 10-horse field.
No. 6 Breezy Song, the 9-5 favorite, set the pace into the deep stretch before losing a photo finish by the length of a nose to No. 7 Arte Latino.
Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $41,314.90 Saturday
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.
Apprentice Hernandez May Be Out of Action for 2 Months
Apprentice jockey Harry Hernandez may be out of action for as long as two months with an injury sustained in a racing mishap in Friday’s 10th race.
A post-race examination determined the 18-year-old Puerto Rico native had sustained a broken left wrist after being unseated when his mount, Starship Muffy, stumbled and fell onto the turf course.
“It’s part of the job,” Hernandez said. “I might be out two months.”
In his first year of riding, Hernandez has ridden 103 winners from 625 mounts and is ranked second in the summer meet standings with 36 winners.
