Friday’s Rainbow 6 Carryover Jackpot Grows over $1 million

Jan 4, 2018
Fly So High Impresses in Feature-Race Romp

HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – The 20-cent Rainbow 6 went unsolved for the 21th consecutive program Thursday, growing the jackpot carryover to $1,004,785.38 for Friday’s card.

Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $769.60.

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 Thursday’s six-race sequence (Races 5-10) was $902,535, generating a Rainbow 6 handle of $426,081.

The popular multi-race wager has last solved on Dec. 7, when a lucky ticketholder cashed for a $98,309.32 jackpot payoff.

There will also be a $4,591.91 Super Hi-5 carryover heading into Friday’s program.

Fly So High Impresses in Feature-Race Romp

Phipps Stable’s Fly So High overcame a little crowding at the start of Thursday’s featured ninth race to score an impressive 5 ½-length victory under Jose Ortiz.

Making her first start since breaking her maiden by 7 ¾ lengths at Aqueduct Nov. 16, Fly So High made steady progress along the backstretch to engage pacesetter My Favorite Gift on the far turn before taking the lead at the top of the stretch and drawing away to victory despite racing somewhat greenly.

“One of the hardest things for horses to do is break their maiden and come back against winners,” trainer Shug McGaughey. “I liked the way she came over today. She acted like she knew she was going to run. Everything didn’t go perfect for her at the beginning of the race, but Jose got her out and got here in good position. She went from there. She got a little green when she made the lead, but that doesn’t surprise me. I think this race will do her good and I’m looking forward to the future.”

McGaughey said he’d take a look at the Davona Dale (G2) March 3 at Gulfstream Park for the $675,000 yearling purchase’s next outing.

The long-striding daughter of Malibu Moon, set to post as the 1-5 favorite, ran a mile in 1:39.03.

“She did everything right, but in the stretch when she found herself by herself, she started to play a little, so I kept asking for more,” Ortiz said. “She’s very talented. She will go longer.”

My Favorite Gift, ridden by Emisael Jaramillo, held second, 5 ¼ lengths ahead of Weekend Mischief and jockey Edgard Zayas.

 Who’s Hot: Jose Batista and Tyler Gaffalione each rode two winners. Batista won aboard Townie ($16) in the fourth and Princess ($23.80) in the sixth. Gaffalione scored aboard Runaway Posse ($10) in the fifth and Ours Again ($12.20) in the 10th.
