Gulfstream Park: Rainbow 6 hit for $3.5 million


HALLANDALE BEACH Fla. - The Rainbow 6 jackpot, which has grown on a daily basis since Dec. 28, was finally hit on Friday when one ticket holder correctly picked all six winners to take down a prize worth $3,591,245 for a 10-cent wager. The payoff is the largest on a single wager in the history of Gulfstream Park. 

The winning ticket was purchased at the Meadowlands for $3,118.50, according to the track’s mutuel department. To take down the Rainbow 6 jackpot, a bettor must have the only ticket with the winning combination. Friday’s Rainbow 6 pool totaled $438,733, which meant there was just a single winning ticket out of 4,387,330 combinations played on Friday.   

The winning Rainbow 6 sequence, which did not contain a single favorite, began in race 5 with the 56-1 Keynor Veloz ($114) and continued with Original Cast ($11.40), Odalys Halo ($36.40), Artie’s Jasper ($17.20), Mays Treasuretrove ($23.60) and Feline Forum ($23)
