$100,000 Guarantee for Sunday’s Rainbow 6
HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. – Multiple winning tickets in Saturday’s mandatory payout of Gulfstream Park’s 20-cent Rainbow 6 each returned $58,267.14 on a day when the total pool approached $10 million.
The sequence included Eye of the Jedi’s $36.40 upset of Grade 1-winning millionaire Math Wizard and multiple graded-stakes winner Diamond Oops in Race 11, the $55,000 Coaltown for 3-year-olds and up.
There were 138 winning tickets.
The Rainbow 6 had gone unsolved for 20 consecutive racing days since a mandatory payout of $31,476.56 May 9. A total of $7,705,766 was put into the popular multi-race wager on top of a carryover of $1,861,605.13 from Friday’s program.
In the Rainbow 6, 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.
On mandatory payout days, the carryover jackpot is completely disbursed and shared by all bettors holding tickets with the most winners.
The Rainbow 6 begins anew Sunday spanning Races 5-10 and offering a guaranteed pool of $100,000. Races 5 and 7 are scheduled for the turf, attracting a total of 28 entries.
First race post time is noon.
