As there was Saturday, there is another $1 million guaranteed Jackpot pool in Sunday's 20 cent Rainbow Pick Six at Santa Anita. On opening day, Friday, one lucky ticket came within one length of hitting a $250,000 Jackpot in the ninth and final race, so the prospect of a life-changing score is very much a reality heading into Sunday's nine-race matinee, which will get underway at 12:30 p.m.
Sunday's Rainbow Six will begin with race four, which has an approximate post time of 2:05 p.m. PT.
The Grade I, $300,000 Zenyatta Stakes has been carded as Sunday's fifth, and with Bob Baffert's Abel Tasman installed as the heavy 2-5 morning line favorite, a good many punters may opt to approach the Sunday “six” as a Pick 5 in order to spread deeper in all other races.
Heading into Sunday, average field size in the 20 cent Rainbow Pick Six stands at eight runners per race.
The 20 cent Rainbow Pick Six, which has proven to be a tremendous success at Gulfstream Park, was initiated with the onset of Santa Anita's 22-day Autumn Meet yesterday and has proven very successful through two days. Today's total Rainbow Pick Six handle was $251,385, which resulted in 12 winning tickets worth $11,189. Yesterday's Rainbow handle of $82,392 resulted in six winning tickets, each worth $7,336.
