Possible $5 Million Pool for Father’s Day at Santa Anita


ARCADIA, Calif. (June 12, 2019)—With the prospect of a $5 million total pool at stake, Santa Anita Park will offer fans a mandatory 20 cent Single Ticket Rainbow Pick Six Jackpot payout on Father’s Day, this Sunday, June 16.

Although Sunday’s mandatory payout provision is contingent upon there being no Single Ticket winner on Friday, the popular wager is on schedule to produce a massive pool at week’s end, as $1,161,294 in “live” money will be carried into Friday’s eight-race card, which gets underway at 1 p.m.

Sunday’s Jackpot pool is difficult to predict, but this past Sunday’s today’s total pool of $1,353,571 would indicate that a Father’s Day Jackpot of $5 million is within reach.


With Santa Anita’s closing day set for Sunday, June 23, fans will be treated to another mandatory Rainbow Six payout, as all exotic pools must be distributed.
