$4.6 Million Rainbow 6 Carryover Jackpot Friday; Mandatory Payout Florida Derby Day

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot for Friday’s program at Gulfstream Park grew to $4,599,159.48 when the popular multi-race wager went unsolved Thursday for the 42nd consecutive racing day.

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 $568,412 was wagered into the Rainbow 6 Thursday, adding to a carryover of $4,287,715 from Sunday’s program.  Multiple tickets with all six winners each returned $466.30.

A mandatory Rainbow 6 jackpot carryover payout is scheduled for Florida Derby Day card Saturday, when there will also be a $750,000 pool guarantee for the Late Pick 4 and a $500,000 pool guarantee for the Late Pick 5.

If the Rainbow 6 continues to go unsolved Friday, the total pool is expected to approach $20 million. Bettors holding tickets with the most winners in the six-race sequence (Races 9-14) will share in the entire pool.

There will also be a Super Hi-5 carryover of $10,507.93 heading into Friday’s program.

Advance wagering on Saturday’s 14-race Florida Derby Day program will be offered Friday.
