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 sold, 70 percent of that day’s pool goes back to those betters holding tickets with the most winners while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool.
The Rainbow 6 will start anew on Friday’s 10-race program.
A $64,685.81 carryover for Thursday’s 50-cent Late Pick 5 generated a handle of $439,153 on the multi-race wager that spanned Races 7-10. Multiple tickets with all five winners were each worth $20,335.85.
There will be a Super Hi-5 carryover of $2,573.72 heading into Friday’s first race.
Late-Developing Eight Town Sprints to Third Straight Victcory
Susan and Jim Hill’s Eight Town sprinted to a one-length victory in Thursday’s featured ninth race at Gulfstream Park, notching his third-straight triumph while running seven furlongs in a sharp 1:22.03.
Ridden by Nik Juarez, the 3-year-old son of Speightstown set a pressured pace along the backstretch and around the turf before shaking free of Abounding Legacy and crossing the finish line first in the optional claiming allowance test.
“It was a little class-kiss for him today. He stepped up against a few older horses that have been solid hard-knockers,” Lynch said. “He’s still learning. He did it the hard way today on the lead the whole way but I thought he boxed on gamely when he needed to. Hopefully, he continues to improve because he seems to be a nice little horse in the making.”
Eight Town experienced a troubled trip in his off-the-board debut at Saratoga but has found the winner’s circle in his three subsequent races, breaking his maiden at Belmont and winning an entry-level allowance at Keeneland before making it three in a row Thursday.
The Ontario-bred colt had the look of a future stakes performer while setting fractions of 23.05 (seconds), 45.09 and 1:08.81 under pressure for the first six furlongs.
“He certainly is leading us in that directions, but I think I’ll probably run him in a condition allowance one more time,” Lynch said.
Who’s Hot: Miguel Vasquez scored three straight off-the-pace wins, connecting with Prospective Diva ($9) in the fifth race, Lisa Limon ($74.40) in the sixth and Fueledbydrama ($40) in the seventh.
Trainer Joe Calabrese III saddled a pair of winners, scoring with Di Maestro ($15) in the first and Prospective Diva.
