HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – The 20-cent Rainbow 6 went unsolved for the 10th consecutive program Sunday at Gulfstream Park, producing a $616,553 carryover jackpot for Wednesday’s program.

Multiple winning tickets Sunday were each worth $418.36.

There will also be a Super Hi 5 carryover Wednesday of $3,594.14.

The Rainbow 6 was last hit Jan. 28, when the mandatory payout of a North American record $19.779 million pool produced multiple winning tickets worth $15,566.

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. However, on days when a mandatory payout is scheduled, the entire pool is shared by those holding tickets with the most winners.

The Rainbow 6 carryover heading into Sunday’s six-race sequence (Races 7-12) stood at $506,538.61, generating a handle of $458,480.

Multiple graded-stakes winner Ring Weekend sparkled in his 2018 debut Sunday at Gulfstream Park, rolling through the stretch to score impressively in the featured 11th race, a mile optional claiming allowance on turf.

Owned by West Point Thoroughbreds, the 7-year-old gelding saved ground along the backstretch under Jose Ortiz as Hockey School cut out solid fractions of  24.21 (seconds), 47.18 on his way to a six-furlong clocking in 1:10.18. Ortiz swung Ring Weekend to the outside on the far turn and the trainer Graham Motion’s durable turf star responded with an extended run to draw away from his nine rivals while completing the mile in 1:34.75.

“He broke his made four years ago during the opening weekend of the Winter Olympics, and four years later we start the Winter Olympics and he’s still winning,” West Point Thoroughbreds’ Terry Finley said. “He’s a beautiful horse.”

Ring Weekend, who has earned more than $1.5 million during his career, scores his eighth career victory. Profiteer and Saham also rallied off the fast pace to finish second and third, respectively.

Who’s Hot: Leading trainer Todd Pletcher saddled a pair of impressive 1 1/16-mile optional allowance winners, scoring with You’re to Blame ($4.20) in the fifth and Hedge Fund ($6.40) in the eighth.

Leading jockey Luis Saez doubled aboard Could Be ($12.60) in the first and First Distinction ($2.80) in the fourth.

Jose Ortiz rode three winners, scoring aboard Inverted ($3.80) in the third, Hedge Fund and Ring Weekend ($6.60) in the 11th.

Rainbow 6 Carryover Jackpot: $616,553.73.
