Ortiz Brothers Dominate As Gulfstream’s Rainbow 6 Jackpot Approaches $1 Million

by | 01.31.2019 | 11:26pm

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 went unsolved for the 17th consecutive racing day Thursday, growing the carryover jackpot to $976,699.44 for Friday's 11-race program.

First race post time is noon.

A total of $294,009 was bet into the popular multi-race wager, which began with a carryover of $906,158.40 from Wednesday's card. Multiple tickets with all six winners Thursday were each worth $9,820.74.

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.

Since the 2018-19 Championship Meet kicked off Dec. 1, the Rainbow 6 has been hit five times, most recently for a $188,900.81 payout Jan. 9.

There will also be a Super Hi-5 carryover of $6.172.23 heading into Friday's card.

Who's Hot: Brothers Jose Ortiz and Irad Ortiz Jr. combined for seven victories on Thursday's 11-race program.

Jose scored four straight wins, winning aboard Math Wizard ($5.80) in Race 4, Radiantrithym ($10.40) in Race 5, Souper Scat Daddy ($3.80) in Race 6 and Queen of Beas ($4) in Race 7.

Irad scored aboard Cocktail Skirt ($3.60) in Race 1, Glorious Mystery ($4.40) in Race 3, and Bella's Game ($9.80) in Race 8.

Leading trainer Jorge Navarro saddled two winners: Be a Hero ($2.60) in Race 2 and Radiantrithym.
