BALTIMORE, Md. – One lucky bettor solved the 20-cent Rainbow 6 for a life-changing jackpot payout of $547,686.94 Saturday at historic Pimlico Race Course on the penultimate day of the Preakness Meet.

Freeze the Fire ($30.40) sprung a front-running 14-1 upset of 1-2 favorite Dillinger in Saturday’s Race 9 finale to complete the winning 1-6-4-6-9-3 combination. Other winners in the sequence were God Is Love ($18.80) in Race 4, Admit Nothing ($6.60) in Race 5, Community Adjusted ($8.40) in Race 6, Wudi ($6.20) in Race 7 and Linny Kate($13.20) in Race 8.

Saturday’s bonanza came one day before a scheduled mandatory payout in the Rainbow 6, Jackpot Super High Five and Late Pick 5 wagers. The Rainbow 6 had gone unsolved for 13 consecutive racing days since a $364.74 mandatory return May 7, closing day of Laurel Park’s spring meet.

The Rainbow 6 will begin anew on Sunday’s eight-race closing day program that begins at 12:25 p.m. The sequence spans Races 3-8 and includes a maiden special weight for fillies and mares ages 3, 4 and 5 scheduled for five furlongs on the grass in Race 6 and an optional claiming allowance for fillies and mares 3 and up sprinting six furlongs in Race 7.

The Rainbow 6 jackpot is paid out only when there is a single unique ticket sold with all six winners. On days when there is no unique ticket, 60 percent of that day’s pool goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners while 40 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.

Introduced in Maryland April 2, 2015, on opening day of Pimlico’s spring meet, the state-record Rainbow 6 carryover reached $1,435,080.75 over 27 consecutive racing programs before a mandatory payout of $31,028.08 to multiple ticketholders July 4, 2021.

There will be a carryover of $490,727.68 in the Jackpot Super High Five for Sunday, which takes place in Race 6. The Jackpot Super High Five went unsolved for a ninth straight racing day Saturday, producing multiple winning tickets worth $1,233.20 after $36,484 was wagered on top of a $475,656.86 carryover from Friday.

The Jackpot Super High Five was last hit for a $10,383.50 payout May 14 at Pimlico.

Launched April 1, on opening day of Laurel Park’s spring meet, the Jackpot Super High Five takes place in Race 6 every live race day. In the Jackpot Super High 5, the jackpot is paid out when there is a single unique ticket sold with each of the first five finishers in exact order. On days when there is no unique ticket, 50 percent of that day’s pool goes back to those bettors holding tickets with all five finishers while 50 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool.

If there is no ticket with all five finishers in exact order, the entire pool will be carried over to the next day’s Jackpot Super High Five. Similar to the Rainbow 6, on days when a mandatory payout is scheduled the entire pool is shared by those holding tickets with the most winners.

Sunday’s Race 6 is a scheduled five-furlong turf dash for maidens ages 3, 4 and 5 that attracted an overflow field of 11 including first-time starters Little Josie Wales, Golden Charm, Tea Rose and Lenamagnetta. The 2-1 program favorite is In Her Cups, winless with three thirds from four races last year making her first start since late October. Cut From Class moves to the grass after finishing fourth in a maiden special weight sprinting seven furlongs over a sloppy Charles Town track April 28 in his debut.

NOTES

Jevian Toledo added three wins Saturday to raise his Preakness Meet-leading total to 19 with victories on New York Panther ($6.40) in Race 1, Wudi ($6.20) in Race 7 and Linny Kate ($13.20) in Race 8 …

Robert LaPenta, Madaket Stables and ERJ Racing’s 3-year-old filly Miss San Gabriel was a popular maiden special weight winner, her third start and second straight against older horses. Trained by Graham Motion, she covered one mile in 1:38.43 over a firm turf course … 

Saturday’s other maiden special weight for fillies and mares 3 and up going 1 1/16 miles on the main track saw Baoma Corp.’s $725,000 Uncle Mo filly Wudi edge favored Hollywoodland by a head. The winning time was 1:47.60.
