HALLANDALE BEACH, FL
– The 20-cent Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot swelled to $3,129,357.50 for Wednesday’s card at Gulfstream when the popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the 35th consecutive program Sunday.
Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $16,657.68.
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 Sunday’s six-race sequence (Races 6-11) was $2,929,465.31, producing a Rainbow 6 handle of $833,084.
The Rainbow 6 was last solved on Dec. 7, when a lucky ticketholder cashed for a $98,309.32 jackpot payoff.
Jose Ortiz rode a pair of winners Sunday, scoring aboard Cash Call Kitten ($4.40) in Race 6 and Ray’s The Bar ($3.20) in Race 8.
Rainbow 6 Carryover: $3,129.357.50.
