The 20-cent Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot will offer a whopping carryover jackpot of $1,563,761.29 on Monday's Memorial Day program at Gulfstream Park.
The popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the 34nd consecutive racing day Sunday, when multiple tickets with six winners were each worth $5,348.24.
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.
A total of $324,472 was wagered into the Rainbow 6 Sunday, when wagering on the six-race sequence started with a carryover $1,485,921.03 from Saturday's card.
Monday's Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 6-11, including the $60,000 Home of the Brave, a starter stakes scheduled for 1 ½ miles on turf carded as Race 9. Salute the Colonel, who will drop from Grade 2 company, is rated as the 9-5 favorite in a field of 11 3-year-olds and up.
The Memorial Day program, which will have a 1:15 p.m. first-race post time, will be headlined by the $75,000 Crystal River, featuring World Record holder Pay Any Price. The popular 9-year-old gelding has been installed as the 3-5 morning-line favorite in the five-furlong turf feature. The Georgina Baxter-trained star set the standard for five-furlongs on turf while winning the 2017 Silks Run at Gulfstream in 53.61 seconds.
