The 20-cent Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot grew to $1,801,310.25 for Saturday's program at Gulfstream when the popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the 27th consecutive program Friday.
Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $6,293.76.
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.
The carryover jackpot pool going into Friday's six-race sequence (Races 5-10) was $1,682,088, generating a Rainbow 6 handle of $496,895.
The Rainbow 6 was last solved on Dec. 7, when a lucky ticketholder cashed for a $98,309.32 jackpot payoff.
Saturday's six-race Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 7-12 and will include the $100,000 Marshua's River (G3) in Race 9 and the $200,000 Fort Lauderdale (G2) in Race 11.
Grade 1 stakes-winning Dream Dancing is slated to make her 2018 debut in the Marshua's River, a 1 1/16-mile turf stakes for older fillies and mares. The Mark Casse-trained 4-year-old filly, who captured the Del Mar Oaks (G1) last fall, has won both of her starts over the Gulfstream turf, including a victory in the Herecomesthebride (G3) last year.
Multiple graded-stakes winner Heart to Heart has been installed as the even-money favorite for the Fort Lauderdale, a 1 1/8-mile turf stakes for older horses. The Brian Lynch-trained 7-year-old has won four of five starts over the Gulfstream Park turf course, including the 2016 Fort Lauderdale.
There will also be a Super Hi-5 carryover of $2,374.84 heading into Saturday's program, which has a first-time post time set for noon.
