Thursday’s Rainbow 6 Jackpot Carryover Tops $2.57 Million

Mar 7, 2018
Nik Juarez Planning to Ride Spring, Summer Meets at Gulfstream
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – The 20-cent Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot grew to $2,577,533 for Thursday’s program at Gulfstream Park after going unsolved for the 26st straight program Wednesday.

A total of $390,547 was wagered into the pool for the popular multi-race wager, which offered a $2,483,855 carryover jackpot heading into Wednesday’s card. Multiple tickets with all six winners each returned $1,260.94. 

The popular multi-race wager 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.
Nik Juarez Planning to Ride Spring, Summer Meets at Gulfstream

Jockey Nik Juarez and agent Jay Rushing are making plans to be based at Gulfstream Park during the spring and summer meets for the first time.

The 24-year-old Maryland native, who has ridden 29 winners during the Championship Meet, has been based at Monmouth Park during the past few years during the spring and summer months. Last year, he won the riding title with 75 winners at the New Jersey racetrack, where he finished second in 2016 with 69 winners.

“I think there is more opportunity to ride here with more racing days in the week, as opposed to Monmouth, where in May and June there will only be two days a week. July they go to three. August they go to four, but they’re done by Sept. 9,” Juarez said. “It took a lot for me and my agent Jay Rushing to consider, but being down here with more racing days a week and the more money they’re going to have here, I think it will be a more stable location with year-round racing.”

Juarez, who has a house in South Florida, said he put on 37,000 miles on his car last year from driving to other Mid-Atlantic and New York tracks on Monmouth’s dark days.

“It was a big decision to make because we won the title last year at Monmouth,” Juarez said. “But, like I said, it’s a more stable situation here for me and my agent.”

Who’s Hot:  Hall of Famer Javier Castellano notched back to back victories aboard royal Blessing ($5.20) in the seventh and Madame Uno ($2.80) in the eighth. Miguel Vasquez also doubled with victories aboard Aurora Princess ($16.60) in the second and Perfect Fox ($20) in the 10th.

Rainbow 6 Carryover: $2,577,533.
