HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – The 20-cent Rainbow 6 went unsolved for the 22nd consecutive racing day at Gulfstream Park Thursday, growing the carryover jackpot to $1,413,193 for Friday's 12-race program. (First-race post time is set for noon).
There will also be a Super Hi 5 carryover Friday of $23,292.53.
A total of $296,546 was bet into the popular multi-race wager, which began with a carryover of $1,342,034.54 from Wednesday’s card. Multiple tickets with all six winners Thursday were each worth $55,345.88. .
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.
Since the 2018-19 Championship Meet kicked off Dec. 1, the Rainbow 6 has been hit five times, most recently for a $188,900.81 payout Jan. 9.
Friday’s six-race sequence will span Races 7-12, featuring Pay Any Price’s return to action in Race 8, an optional claiming allowance at five furlongs on turf. The popular 9-year-old gelding, who set a North American record (53.61 seconds) for five furlongs on turf while winning the 2017 Silks Run at Gulfstream, has won 15 of 25 starts, including 12 of 17 at Gulfstream.
A mandatory payout of the 20-cent Rainbow 6 pool will be held Saturday at Gulfstream Park. The entire pool, including a carryover jackpot, will be paid out to all those holding tickets with the most winners.
Thursday’s Late Pick 5 returned $57,091.25.
Who's Hot: Jockey Luis Saez won three of Gulfstream’s first four races. Saez won the first aboard Conquesthardcherry ($31.40), the second race with Discreet Heat ($6.20) and the fourth with Dancing Starlet ($6).
