Apprentice Jockey Carlos Hernandez Notches a Triple
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL
– Sunday’s mandatory payout of the 20-cent Rainbow 6 on the final day of Gulfstream’s 2016-2017 Championship Meet produced a payoff of $48,881.88 for multiple tickets with all six winners.
Betting on the Sunday’s six-race sequence that spanned Races 6-11 began with a $1,911,407.94 carryover jackpot. The chance to collect a life-changing jackpot generated a Rainbow 6 handle of $7,336,992.
The popular multi-race wager had gone unsolved for 27 consecutive programs since a $324,179.78 was paid out Feb. 23.
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, on days when a mandatory payout is scheduled, the entire pool is shared by those holding tickets with the most winners.
The Spring Meet gets under way Wednesday (12:35 p.m.) with a $15,119 Super Hi-5 Carryover slated for the second race.
Apprentice jockey Carlos Hernandez notched a triple aboard B L’s Wagon ($30.20) in the first, Cindy’s Candy ($8.40) in the ninth and Hampstead Heath ($19.60) in the 10th. Luca Panici scored a double aboard Japonski ($10.40) in the eighth and Good and Proper ($13.60) in the 11th. John Velazquez made two trips to the winner’s circle aboard Driven by Thunder ($6.40) in the fifth and Adventist ($7) in the seventh.
