The Mandatory payout of Gulfstream Park's 20-cent Rainbow 6 Saturday, which reached $8.2 million, returned $100,919.88 to multiple tickets with all six winners.
It wasn't an easy ticket to hit.
The Rainbow 6 got off to a surprise when Papa Y, a 50-1 longshot who had failed to hit the board in four previous tries, went gate-to-wire and returned $118. After the 12-1 longshot Trilby ($26.60) won the second leg, there were only 22,129 live tickets remaining.
There was a $1,509,922 million carryover going into the day. There was $6,754,787 of new money wagered Saturday.
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.
