The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot was hit for a $436,076.38 payoff Thursday at Gulfstream Park.
The popular multi-race wager went unsolved for 15 consecutive programs before the only ticket with the winning combination of 1-2-1-7-5-7 broke the jackpot. The winning ticket, played through an off-track betting facility in Lewiston, Maine, was one of a large number of 20-cent tickets played by a single bettor.
The Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot is paid out only when there is a single unique ticket sold with all six winners. On days when there is no unique ticket sold, 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.
Five horses were eligible in the 10th race to take down the jackpot, including the No. 2 Little John W., No. 3 Rizwan, No. 4 Forall the Marbles, No. 7 Parmel Landing and No. 9 Zipi Zape. Parmel Landing ($10) rallied from off the pace to prevail in the final leg of the Rainbow 6 to round out the winning combination.
The Rainbow 6 will start anew on Friday's 2:15 p.m. twilight program. The six-race sequence will span Races 4-9.
