Saturday 3/17 Features $3.4M Rainbow Six Carryover

Press Release

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot for Saturday’s program at Gulfstream Park swelled to $3,442,569.50 when the popular multi-race wager went unsolved Friday for the 34th consecutive racing day.

Saturday’s six-race Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 8-13, including the $200,000 Inside Information (G2) in Race 11, a seven-furlong sprint for older fillies and mares. Jordan’s Henny, the recent winner of the Hurricane Bertie (G3), and Rich Mommy, who captured the Dec. 16 Sugar Swirl (G3) before finishing third in the Hurricane Bertie, will be challenged by Ivy Bell, a recent addition to trainer Todd Pletcher’s stable, along with four other entrants in the Inside Information.

Saturday’s first-race post time is set for noon.

The Rainbow 6 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.

A total of $553,426 was wagered into the popular-multi-race wager Friday, adding to a carryover of $3,309,798.12 from Thursday’s program.  Multiple tickets with all six winners each returned $356.28.
