Gulfstream’s Rainbow 6 Solved Thursday For $159,442 Payout

Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla.

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 was solved by one lucky bettor for a $159,442.38 jackpot payout Thursday at Gulfstream Park.

Live Oak Plantation homebred Quality Review ($8.60) was one of four horses live to take down the jackpot heading into the 10th race finale, edging School Dance by a half-length to complete the winning 3-5-3-4-4-1 combination.

Other winners in the sequence were War of Ages ($13.60) in Race 5, Crumb Bun ($12.20) in Race 6, Make No Mistake ($11.20) in Race 7, Oriental Trigger ($53.80) in Race 8 and Mezcal ($3.40) in Race 9.

Thursday marked the third time in five racing days that the Rainbow 6 was hit. It was solved for a life-changing $1,200,305.88 on Jan. 7, one day before a mandatory payout returned $100,823.22.

The Rainbow 6 jackpot is 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.

The Rainbow 6 begins anew Friday with a $50,000 gross jackpot pool guarantee starting in Race 5, a claiming event for 4-year-olds and up scheduled for 1 1/16 miles on the turf that drew a field of 10 including morning line top choice Bright Devil, racing first off the claim for trainer Bobby Dibona.

The feature comes in Race 9, a 5 ½-furlong optional claiming allowance for Florida-bred fillies and mares 4 and up where Jacks or Better Farm’s American of Course is the 9-5 program favorite. Trained by Kathleen O’Connell, the 5-year-old mare won three straight last spring and summer and returned from a seven-month layoff to run third Dec. 16 at Gulfstream.

Races 9 and 10, a 1 1/16-mile claiming event scheduled for the turf, are also respectively the second and final legs of the national weekly Stronach 5 wager that begins at Santa Anita and also includes Golden Gate Fields.
