Heading into the last race, there were 62 tickets that included the first five winners in the six-race sequence. One ticket on the No. 7 (Hengist) would have taken down a jackpot worth nearly $2.3 million.
There was a $663,400.60 jackpot carryover pool for the start of wagering on the Rainbow 6 Monday, generating a handle of $2,035.117 on the popular wager that spanned Races 6-11.
The innovative multi-race wager had gone unsolved for 30 consecutive programs. It was last hit July 16, when a unique ticket paid $164,483.32.
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. However, when there is a mandatory payout, a bettor doesn’t necessarily have to hold a unique ticket with all six winners to grab a share of the mandatory carryover pool. Instead, all bettors holding tickets with the most winners in the six-race sequence will share in the entire pool that day.
There were also mandatory payouts of the 50-cent Pick 5 and the $1 Super Hi-5 pools Monday. The Pick 5 paid $1,918.65 for four of five winners, while the Super Hi-5, for which there was a carryover of $11,671, returned $23,141.70.
Wagering on the Rainbow 6, Pick 5 and Super Hi-5 will start anew when live racing resumes at Gulfstream on Friday. First race post time is 1:15 p.m.
