Jose Ortiz Rides Three Winners, Irad Ortiz Jr. Wins Two
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL
– The 20-cent Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot grew to $2,424,348.75 for Thursday’s program at Gulfstream when the popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the 31th consecutive program Wednesday.
Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $5,164.36.
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 $2,292,790.25, generating a Rainbow 6 handle of $548,294.
The Rainbow 6 was last solved on Dec. 7, when a lucky ticketholder cashed for a $98,309.32 jackpot payoff.
The Brothers Ortiz continued to familiarize themselves with the Gulfstream Park winner’s circle, winning a combined five races Wednesday. Jose Ortiz won aboard Luz Mimi ($3.60) in the second, Conquest Sandman ($8.60) in the sixth, and Ferdinanda ($14) in the 10th. Irad Ortiz Jr. scored aboard ($5.80) in the fourth and Abraham ($14.40) in the seventh.
Leading trainer Todd Pletcher saddled back-to-back winners: Lucky Jumby ($22) in the eighth and Impact Player ($2.80) in the featured ninth race.
