Jockey Nik Juarez Notches 500th Career Win
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL
– The 20-cent Rainbow 6 went unsolved for the 20th consecutive program Wednesday, growing the jackpot carryover to $902,535.88 for Thursday’s card.
Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $3,306.08.
The carryover jackpot is only paid out 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 carryover jackpot pool going into Wednesday’s six-race sequence (Races 5-10) was $828,290.56, generating a Rainbow 6 handle of $309,397.
The popular multi-race wager has last solved on Dec. 7, when a lucky ticketholder cashed for a $98,309.32 jackpot payoff.
Juarez Notches 500th Career Win
Jockey Nik Juarez notched his 500th career victory when he guided Animal Trick to a front-running triumph in the second race.
The 24-year-old Maryland native, who has been riding four years, won a career-high 188 races in 2017.
“Just to hit 500 – it’s a small milestone, but it’s a big milestone, as well,” Juarez said. With all the trainers, owners and horsemen behind me, I’m very happy to have such success in such a short amount of time.
Juarez scored win No. 501 in the ninth race aboard Final Flurry ($3.60),
Solfatara ($7.40) notched her fourth straight victory since being claimed for $6,250 at Gulfstream Aug. 5, taking Wednesday’s eighth race by 1 ½ lengths. Trained by Henry Collazo for Tom and John Miszuk, the 5-year-old daughter of Wildcat Heir won her fourth optional claiming event in a row, running seven furlong in 1:26.89 over a sloppy track. Apprentice jockey Aby Medina has been aboard for all four victories.
