Gulfstream’s Rainbow 6 Carryover Jackpot Swells To $1.78 Million

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot swelled to $1,782,266.18 at Gulfstream Park for Saturday’s program, when the popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the 37th consecutive racing day Friday.

Multiple tickets with six winners were each worth $25,968.90 Friday.

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 $266,265 was wagered into the Rainbow 6 Friday, when wagering on the six-race sequence started with a carryover of $1,718,182 Thursday’s program.

Saturday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 7-12.

The $75,000 Ocala Stakes, a 6 ½-furlong sprint carded as Race 4, will headline Saturday’s 12-race program that will get under way at 12:45 p.m.

Jacks or Better Farm’s Garter and Tie, who has been a fast-closing second in two starts since returning to one-turn racing, has been installed as the 9-5 morning-line favorite in a field of seven 3-year-olds. Garter and Tie finished off the board in the Holy Bull (G2) and Florida Derby (G1) around two turns, but the homebred son of Brooks ‘n Down had previously enjoyed success while winning the $200,000 FSS Affirmed and the Smooth Air Stakes around one turn.

Gladiator King, a graded-stakes winner who finished second in the Chick Lang (G3) on the Preakness Stakes (G1) undercard at Pimlico last time out; and Seismic Jolt, a stakes winner during the Championship Meet, are rated second and third in the morning line, respectively at 5-2 and 7-2.
