A mandatory payout of the 20-cent Rainbow 6 is scheduled for Saturday’s Gulfstream Park program, which will include 10 stakes, headlined by the $750,000 Curlin Florida Derby presented by Hill ‘n’ Dale Farm at Xalapa.
Should the popular multi-race wager go unsolved through Friday the pool is expected to swell into the multi-millions.
The Late Pick 5 and the Late Pick 4, both boasting all-stakes sequences, will have guaranteed pools of $750,000 Saturday.
The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $1,250,000 Thursday.
The Rainbow 6 went unsolved Wednesday for the 11th racing day in a row since a March 6 mandatory payout. Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $6,041.44 Thursday.
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.
