With the prospect of a massive multi-million dollar mandatory payout looming on closing day, Sunday, Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif., has announced that it will guarantee $2 million in Friday and Saturday's popular 20 cent Single Ticket Rainbow Pick Six Jackpot.
As this Friday is day one of the Breeders' Cup World Championships from Churchill Downs, Santa Anita will run a 10-race program, with first live race post time at 12 noon. Admission gates will open at 9 a.m. and projected post time for Friday's fifth race, leg one in the Rainbow Pick Six, is at 2:35 p.m. PT.
Average field size for Friday's Rainbow Six stands at 9.5 horses per race. Entries for Saturday's races are being taken Wednesday morning at Santa Anita.
First live race post time on Saturday is at 10:30 a.m., with admission gates opening at 7:15 a.m. (Saturday's $2 million Single Ticket Jackpot guarantee is only in effect providing the Jackpot is not “hit” on Friday).
With a return to Standard Time on Sunday, Santa Anita has announced an early first post time of 11 a.m. and track officials anticipate that with a mandatory payout in play, Sunday's 20 cent Rainbow Pick Six Jackpot pool could reach between seven and eight million dollars.
