A lucrative total Single 6 Jackpot pool that could eclipse $1 million will be up for grabs Saturday at Churchill Downs on closing day of the Louisville racetrack's 38-day Spring Meet.
There's a $327,613 carryover for the 19th straight race day after multiple tickets hit Friday's six-race sequence.
Because Saturday is closing day, there will be a mandatory payout in the Single 6 Jackpot with all monies distributed to ticket holders with the most winners in the six-race series. Saturday's Single 6 Jackpot, which only costs 20 cents per combination, will cover Races 7-12 starting at approximately 3:50 p.m. (all times Eastern).
The daily six-race sequence has challenged bettors to select the winners of six consecutive races but the Jackpot pool only is paid if there is a single winning ticket. When multiple tickets contain six winners 90 percent of that day's pool is paid out and 10 percent is added to the Jackpot carryover.
The last time the Jackpot was paid was Memorial Day.
Takeout on the Single 6 Jackpot is just 15 percent, which is one of the lowest multi-race wager takeout rates in American racing.
Saturday's sequence features a full-field, first-level allowance at one mile on turf; the $120,000-added Kelly's Landing at seven furlongs with a field of eight sprinters; a full-field conditioned allowance at 5 ½ furlongs on turf; a field of nine 2-year-old fillies in the $125,000 Debutante (Listed); a field of 10 juveniles in the $125,000 Bashford Manor (GIII); and a full-field maiden special weight for 3-year-olds and up at one mile on turf.

There also will be a mandatory payout in the $1 Super Hi-5 in the final race of the meet, Race 12.

Saturday's 12-race closing day card at Churchill Downs starts at 12:45 p.m.
