Multiple ticketholders took advantage of a mandatory payout in the 20-cent Rainbow 6 carryover pool Monday at Pimlico Race Course, each cashing for $8,181.60.
The winning combination was 7-5-3-1-6-9 for the lucrative six-race sequence.
The Rainbow 6 carryover heading into Monday's mandatory payout was $279,837.20 after the popular multi-race wager went unsolved Saturday and was refunded following Sunday's rain-shortened program. A total of $1,314,879 was bet into the Rainbow 6 Monday, which spanned Races 4-9.
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, 60 percent of that day's pool goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners while 40 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool. However, on mandatory days the entire pool is paid out to the holders of tickets with the most winners.
Maryland's state-record Pick 6 carryover is $345,898.33, reached heading into the April 15 program at Laurel Park. It was solved that day by a single bettor for a jackpot payout of $399,545.94.
There were also mandatory payouts of the 50-cent Late Pick 5 and $1 Super Hi-5 pools Monday. The Pick 5, offering an industry-low 12 percent takeout, began with an $8,137.87 carryover and saw $136,437 of new money, producing a $1,581.50 payoff for five winners.
The Super Hi-5 returned $1,643.80 for a ticket with the correct order of finish of the first five horses in Race 7.
Racing moves to Laurel Park for the 40-day summer meet starting Friday, June 1.
