Edited Gulfstream Park Release – Gulfstream Park’s mandatory payout of the Rainbow 6 resulted in multiple winning tickets Saturday returning $7,363.64.
There was a carryover of $839,334.75 in the Rainbow 6, and $5.336 million of new money bet into the pool. The sequence included Repole Stable’s Always Shopping winning the Via Borghese and Sleepy Eyes Todd winning the Mr. Prospector (G3).
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.
