The 20-cent Rainbow 6 went unsolved for the 11th consecutive racing day Friday, triggering a guaranteed jackpot pool of $750,000 for Saturday's 14-race Fountain of Youth Day program featuring nine graded-stakes worth $1.65 million in purses.
First race post time is 11:30 a.m.
A total of $264,958 was bet into the popular multi-race wager, which began with a carryover of $486,488 from Thursday's card. Multiple tickets with all six winners Friday were each worth $29,667.06.
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 spans races 9-14 and includes four graded-stakes led by the 73rd running of the $400,000 Xpressbet.com Fountain of Youth (G2) for 3-year-olds in Race 13. Also in the sequence are the $150,000 Honey Fox (G3) in Race 11 and $200,000 Mac Diarmida (G2) in Race 14, both on turf, and the $200,000 Davona Dale (G2) for 3-year-old fillies in Race 12.
