Gulfstream Park’s elusive 10-cent Rainbow 6 was hit Friday afternoon for a record $3,591,245.44.

The ticket was purchased at The Meadowlands in New Jersey. The winning ticket cost $3,118.50.

The previous record for a winning ticket on the Rainbow 6 was $791,364 on April 1, 2012. The previous record carryover was $5.1 million on April 23, 2011.

The Rainbow 6 is paid out when there is only one unique ticket with all six winners on the last six races of the day. Going into Friday’s last race, there were five live tickets. The winner in the last race, Feline Forum, returned $23.


The Rainbow 6 has produced several large payoffs, including $414,166.52 (Jan. 2, 2012) and $327,110.71 (Dec. 23, 2012). The last time the Rainbow 6 was hit was Dec. 28 for $41,813.78.

Friday’s 10-cent Rainbow 6 started with Keyner Veloz winning the fifth race and paying $114. The rest of the winners were Original Cast ($11.40) in the sixth, Odalys Halo ($36.80) in the seventh, Artie’s Jasper ($17.20) in the eighth, Mays Treasuretrove ($23.60) in the ninth and Feline Forum in the 10th.

Gulfstream’s 10-cent Rainbow 6 begins all over again Saturday starting with the seventh race. Post time is for 12:45 p.m. Gulfstream’s 12-race program Saturday includes the $400,000 Besilu Stables Fountain of Youth (G2), the last major prep before the $1 million Florida Derby March 30, and the $250,000 Davona Dale (G2).

    read that winning ticket cost $3,100 …..big bankroll wins again -so much for handicapping prowess with so many combinations on the 10 cent ticket.

      Although the (probable) “syndicate” of bettors spent $3118.50, in reality $3118.40 of their ticket were losing 10c tickets, while just ONE 10c ticket was the winner. Therfore, an all “singles” ticket (cost 10c) has the same chance of winning, but it’s all relative to a player’s investment. A $3118.50 ticket is 311,850 ten cent chances of which 311,849 of them are going to be losing 10c tickets- before they even start the first leg of the P6. Here’s hoping no one hits in the next six weeks so there’s a HUGE c/o going into April 5th, closing day, when there’s a mandatory payout!

        Math error: A $3118.50 ticket is 31,185 ten cent chances of which 31,184 of them are going to be losing 10c tickets.

    The ticket was not purchased at the Meadowlands, it was purchased at Favorites Off Track Wagering in Fords, NJ.  I witnessed it happen.

    I heard from Mickey Mouse that some dude in Fantasyland had the winning ticket.

    Seriously, how many days did the “big bankroll” make a play? And what was the draw down on capital before the win?

    This type of bet is what generally separates the gamblers from the informed speculators.

    Interesting that without the gamblers the informed speculators don’t have a wagering pool to siphon from or out-and-out take down.

    There’s a lesson there.
