Rainbow 6 Pays Out $230,597 For One Bettor
The 20-cent Rainbow 6 hit Saturday at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore when Ruston Vow captured the 10th-race finale for a $230,597.20 payoff.
Two horses were live for the Rainbow 6 jackpot into the last race, and Ruston Vow made a lucky winner of a Pimlico patron when the 3-year-old finished first on the turf, running the 1 1/16 miles in 1:45.10 at 9-2 odds to pay $11.80.
A total of $54,251 was wagered into the popular multi-race wager on Saturday, which included a carryover of $187,186.95 from Friday’s program. The winning numbers in the six-race sequence were 2-5-8-6-7-1.
The Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot is only paid out when there is a single unique ticket sold with all six winners. On days when there is no unique ticket, 70 percent of that day’s pool goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool.
On Sunday, the Rainbow 6 begins anew covering Races 4-9 and includes the featured eighth race, a $35,000 allowance for fillies and mares 3 and up going five furlongs on the turf course which attracted a field of 12.
Live racing will continue Monday, May 30 Memorial Day with post time at 1:10 ET.
