Gulfstream: Rainbow 6 hit for $791,364; ticket purchased in Las Vegas


HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. - One as of yet unidentified bettor walked away with a $791,364 payday for a 10-cent  wager after having the only winning ticket on Sunday’s Rainbow  6 at Gulfstream Park. It is the highest single payoff on any wager in Gulfstream Park history.

According to the Gulfstream’s  mutuel department, the ticket was purchased in Las Vegas at a cost of only $2.40.

The jackpot, which is paid out if there is just a single correct winning combination, was last hit on Feb. 20. 

The winning sequence, which started in the sixth  race, was Kristina’s Slew ($26.60), Smokin Ali ($153.30), Livingston Street ($7.40), Running Wildcat ($13.20), Miss Montreal ($7.80), and Master Achievement ($18).  The winning combination was 9,3,2,2,3,1.    

The winner’s ticket was structured using the combinations 4,7,9,11/2,3/2/2/3/1,6,9.

Master Achievement, the one horse, held off a stretch long bid from the 2-1 favorite Power Emblem to win the finale. If Power Emblem had won, the Rainbow 6 would have carried over until Thursday.

I bet its the same guy who hit the black gold pk5 on like a $2 ticket! His name is Marty Mcfly! Drives a modified DeLorian powered by plutoniom, which supplies 1.21 gigawatts of energy to a device he calls the "flux capacitor."

It may have been one ticket out of a series of tickets. Because it is possible to screw yourself with having multiple horses in a race if one were to scratch where you could get the favorite twice. Probably not the case but possible. Hell of a ticket though.

David, the bet is only 10 cents...The jackpot is paid if there is a single ticket....Taxes are 25% to the Federal Govt and any additional state tax depending on where the ticet is purchased.....I seriously doubt if there was much skill here, as is often the case with such a small ticket....Nonetheless, congrats tot he winner...

Would they get the whole pool if their bet was only .10??? wouldnt they get less because their bet was not $2 or $1.. sorry i dont know how that would work.

It is a 10cent Rainbow Six. The jackpot is ONLY paid out if there is a single winner. Thus, yes he/she won the whole pool.

i think to work at TVG, not sure about HRTV, you have to have the qualification of being a racetrack tout/ loser to be on the primetime tube. They all must be related somehow as they ALL have the same thing in common... think about it!!!
