Friday features Huge Pick-6 Carryover in Maryland

Jackpot Six up for grabs at Laurel

There will be a jackpot carryover of $214,705.26 in the 20-cent Rainbow 6 when live racing returns to Laurel Park with a nine-race program Friday, April 6.

One horse, 35-1 long shot Hard Drive, was live to take down the jackpot heading into Monday’s ninth-race finale, won by Smart Russian ($20.20). A total of $104,741 was bet into the popular multi-race wager, adding to a carryover of $181,211.96 from Saturday, March 31.

Multiple tickets were sold with all six winners Monday, each worth $25,119.96.

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, 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.

Friday’s Rainbow 6 covers Races 4-9 and includes a $42,000 entry-level allowance for 3-year-olds and up going 5 ½ furlongs in Race 6 and a $45,000 second-level optional claiming allowance for 3-year-olds and up at seven furlongs in Race 8.
