Winning Rainbow 6 ticket comes from TwinSpires Portland hub


HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. – The Rainbow 6 jackpot was emptied for a seven-figure score Thursday when a customer betting through the TwinSpires hub in Portland, Ore., won $1,079,444.

The winning ticket cost $336 (or 1,680 combinations at 20 cents apiece), according to the Gulfstream mutuels department. The Twitter feed for TwinSpires reported that the winner actually bet two tickets, with the other costing $440, and nearly $270,000 in federal taxes were withheld.

The winning numbers were 7-4-7-3-1-1, with their respective odds being 5-2, 6-5, 5-2, 19-1, 25-1, and 2-1.

The Rainbow 6 had not been hit by a solo winner in 18 racing days, since Feb. 12. Another $289,621 was bet Thursday atop a carryover of $847,840.

A national pick six record was established here last May 25, when the jackpot reached $6.6 million, with Daniel Borislow sweeping the pool. Borislow died from a heart attack two months later.
