HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. &ndash; A dozen guys at the track for a company outing Thursday accomplished what hard&#45;core and professional handicappers had been unable to do for the previous eight days: They took down the entire Rainbow 6 jackpot to the tune of $324,179.The 12 lucky players, who work for Jim Beam and Southern Wine and Spirits out of Deerfield, Ill., put up $20 apiece to play the winning ticket, which was put together by Art Friedman, a member of the group and a regular horseplayer who resides in Jacksonville, Fla.&ldquo;We have a group outing we do every February, and Jim Beam is the sponsor,&rdquo; Friedman said. &ldquo;They get a suite and take all the guys who work together for a day at the races. We started pooling our money and playing the Rainbow 6 two years ago. We almost hit it then; we missed in the final leg. Last year, we played it, too, but didn&rsquo;t do as well. Most of us are from Florida, and a couple of us play the races regularly by simulcast, but we never play the Rainbow 6 unless we&rsquo;re here together.&rdquo;The winning ticket cost $194.40, using four horses in the opening leg and three each in the last five races in the sequence, including first&#45;time starter Nick the Cardshark, who won the nightcap and paid $57.40. \t &ldquo;We used the 12 in the last race because the 12 won the final leg and paid a big price last year, and we also like the jockey and the trainer, who is 28 percent in the money,&rdquo; Friedman said.Nick the Cardshark was ridden by Carlos Montalvo and is trained by Angel Rodriguez.The Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot is paid only when there is a single unique ticket sold with all six winners.
