Mandatory Rainbow 6 Payout Yields Multiple Payoffs Over 1.1k on XBGlobal
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – A mandatory payout of the 20-cent Rainbow 6 pool yielded multiple payoffs of $1.140.92 Sunday at Gulfstream Park.
The carryover jackpot pool heading into Rainbow 6 wagering was $873,676, which helped to generate a handle of $5,474,357 on the popular multi-race wager Sunday on https://secure.xbglobal.com/main.aspx
The Rainbow 6 had gone for the 10 straight racing days since a lucky bettor broke the jackpot for $712,824.06 Feb. 22.
The Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot is usually 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 usually goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners, while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool. However, on mandatory-payout days, the entire pool is paid out to the bettor or bettors with the most winners in the six-race sequence.
The Rainbow 6 will start anew on Wednesday, when a 10-race program will get underway at 1:10 p.m. and there will be a guaranteed pool of $150,000.
The Stronach 5, which features an industry-low 12-percent takeout, featured races from Laurel Park, Gulfstream Park, Santa Anita Park and Golden Gate Fields. There were no winning favorites. The lowest payoff in Friday’s Stronach 5 was $13.40. The highest was $43.20.
The sequence began with the 9-1 shot Valued Notion ($20.40) winning Race 8 at Laurel for Hillwood Stable LLC and trainer Rodney Jenkins. The prices kept coming in the second leg of the sequence when 11-1 shot Serenade a Kitten ($24.60) got up in deep stretch for trainer Mary Eppler.
The Stronach 5 headed west to Santa Anita Park for the third leg of the sequence. Santa Anita’s third race, a maiden special weight event for 3-year-olds colts, was won by another longshot in Twin Creeks Racing Stables LLC’s Law Professor ($43.20), a 20-1 longshot making his second start for trainer Michael McCarthy. Golden Gate’s third race was next and, yes, the race resulted in another longshot in the 12-1 shot Foragoodtimecall ($26.80).
The Stronach 5 concluded with Gulfstream’s ninth race and Toffen ($13.40) winning under jockey Joe Bravo.
