The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $1 million Saturday at Gulfstream Park.
The popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the 12th consecutive racing day Friday, when multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $1,373.26.
The Rainbow 6 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.
Saturday's Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 7-12, including the $150,000 Royal Delta (G3) in Race 11.
Grade 1 winner Restless Rider is scheduled to make her first start since finishing off the board in the Kentucky Oaks (G1) at Churchill Downs May 3. The Ken McPeek-trained 4-year-old daughter of Distorted Humor captured the 2018 Alcibiades (G1) at Keeneland and came back to prep for the Oaks with a second-place finish in the Ashland (G1) at Keeneland last spring.
