First post us 12:45 p.m. for a 12-race card.
The Rainbow 6 jackpot payoff consisted of the entire 13-day built-up carryover of $171,823 and 80 percent of the $109,713 that was bet on the Rainbow 6 on Saturday.
Gulfstream reported that the winning ticket cost just 40 cents and was bought on a New York Racing Association account. That means the ticket had single horses in five races and two horses in one race. It may have been the lowest-cost ticket to ever be the sole winner of the Rainbow 6.
The Rainbow 6 is a 20-cent per combination-only bet. Multiple horses can be used in each race, thus setting up a ticket with multiple 20 cent combinations. For example, a ticket with two horses in each race has 64 combinations and costs $12.80.
Gulfstream will begin a new and unseeded Rainbow 6 pool on Sunday, on races seven to twelve.
The odds on the winning horses in the Rainbow 6 were 10-1, 28-1, 65-1, 19-1, even money and 9-5.
The numbers were 1-2-7-7-8-3.
Going into the 12th and final race, the eventual winning ticket was the only live ticket that had the 9-5 favorite Miss Maserati. She took an early lead and went on to win the maiden claiming race by 2 ¾ lengths.
It will be an extraordinary story, if it ever comes out, on how the winning bettor or betting team chose the winning combination.
Gulfstream pays out the Rainbow 6 jackpot only om days when there is just one ticket with all six winners.
On days when there are multiple winning tickets Gulfstream takes out 20 percent of the day’s bet, divides 56 percent among tickets with the most winners (usually six) and adds 24 percent to the carryover.The Rainbow 6
