The 20-cent Rainbow 6 pool will be guaranteed at $2.5 million Sunday at Gulfstream Park.
The popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the 31st consecutive racing day of the 2019-2020 Championship Meet Saturday, when multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $ . .
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.
Sunday's Rainbow sequence will span Races 6-11, kicked off by a mile maiden special weight race for 3-year-old fillies, in which Todd Pletcher-trained Spice Is Nice, a $1.05 million yearling purchased sired by Curlin, will make her debut. Featured Race 10, a six-furlong optional claiming allowance for older fillies and mares in which Chad Brown-trained Feedback, last season's Forward Gal (G3) winner, will make her first start since April.
