The 20-cent Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot at Gulfstream Park grew to $1,612,709.74 for Saturday's 13-race program when the popular multi-race wager went unsolved for 21st consecutive racing day Friday.
First-race post time for Saturday's card is set for 12:45 p.m.
A total of $428,760 was bet into the popular multi-race wager, which began with a pool of $1,509,826 carried over from Thursday's card. Multiple tickets with all six winners Friday were each worth $18,828.36.
The carryover jackpot is 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 goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners, while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool.
Since the 2018-19 Championship Meet kicked off Dec. 1, the Rainbow 6 has been hit seven times, most recently for a $227,505.88 payout Feb. 15.
Saturday's Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 8-13. The $200,000 Inside Information (G2) is carded as Race 11. The seven-furlong stakes for older fillies and mares attracted an eight-horse field, featuring multiple-graded stakes winner Tequilita, a winner of the Rampart (G3) at Gulfstream Dec. 15. Jala Jala, the Mexican Filly Triple Crown winner who finished second in the Feb. 16 Royal Delta (G3) at Gulfstream last time out, and Teresa Z., who captured the Nov. 3 Turnback the Alarm (G3) at Aqueduct last time out, are also prominent contenders.
Who's Hot: Luis Saez, who tripled Thursday, rode four winners Friday, scoring aboard Heza Kitten ($3.20) in Race 1, Bronzed ($5) in Race 6, Folly ($7) in Race 7, and Tenacity Zip ($12.20) in Race 9.
