$5.6 Million Bet into $1.4 Million Carryover
Sunday Super Hi 5 Carryover $20,365.16
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL - Gulfstream Park's mandatory payout of its 20-cent Rainbow 6 resulted in a total pool of $7.125 million Saturday, producing multiple-winning tickets each returning $14,504.92.
Bettors wagered a record $5,672,198 into Saturday's Rainbow 6 with a $1.4 million carryover.
The previous record for money wagered into the Rainbow 6 was $3.5 million in 2011 with a $1.4 million carryover.
The Rainbow 6 got off to an exciting start with 27-1 longshot One Proud Dude winning the first leg of the Rainbow 6 and returning $56.20. Favored Cordero won the second leg ($3.80) and favored Majestic Breeze the third ($4.20). The $100,000 Miami Mile (G3) was won by 21-1 longshot Rerun ($44) while the $75,000 Powder Break was taken by 6-5 favorite Baffle Me ($4.60). The final leg of the Rainbow 6 was taken by Be a Bull ($15.20).
The winning numbers were 1-7-8-3-9-4.
The Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot is paid out only when there is a single unique ticket sold with all six winners. On days when there is no unique ticket, 70 percent of that dayâ€™s pool goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners, while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool. Yet, on a mandatory-payout day, the entire pool must be paid out to those bettors with tickets sporting the most winners in the six-race sequence.
The Rainbow 6 jackpot was last hit on March 18, when a unique ticket returned $210,973.74. Six days earlier, a winning Rainbow 6 ticket bet through the Portland, Ore. wagering hub returned a jackpot payoff of $1,079,444.22.
While there will be no carryover in Sunday's Rainbow 6, there will be a Super High 5 carryover of $20,365.16.
