Rainbow 6 Carryover Soars over $1 million for Thursdayâ€™s card
Multiple tickets for popular 20-cent wager cash for $88,271.34
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL â€“ The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot survived another racing day Monday at Gulfstream Park, generating a carryover of $1,042,557.91 for Thursdayâ€™s card. However, two ticket holders of the 1-1-2-12-6-2 combination for the six-race sequence still enjoyed a lucrative afternoon, each cashing for $88,271.34.
Heading into the last race of the Mondayâ€™s six-race sequence that included a major $89.20 upset in the eighth race, there was just one ticket that could have taken down a Rainbow 6 jackpot of $1.2 million had #5 Iskha prevailed in the 10th race. Iskha was extremely slow breaking from the starting gate for the five-furlong turf finale and was never a factor.
The Rainbow 6, which requires a bettor to hold the only ticket with all six races to collect the jackpot, went unsolved for the 28th consecutive racing day Saturday. The jackpot has not been paid out since a single bettor cashed for $30,670.26 on Jan. 10.
There were also a few happy 50-cent Pick 5 ticketholders with the winning 1-2-12-6-2
