Rainbow 6 Produces Life-Changing Payoff on $2,800 Wager

Single Winner Cashes for $230,000 in Saturday Jackpot

BALTIMORE – Introduced last spring by the Maryland Jockey Club, the 20-cent Rainbow 6 produced another life-changing payout when one bettor took down a carryover jackpot of $230,597.20 Saturday at historic Pimlico Race Course.

The single, unique ticket was purchased through the Las Vegas hub at a cost of $2,800. The winning combination was 1-8/1, 5/1, 4, 7-9/1, 3-4, 6-9/2-5, 7/1, 3, 5-6, 9.

Heading into the 10th-race finale, two horses were live to take down the jackpot in the popular multi-race wager, which saw $54,251 wagered into a pool with a carryover of $187,186.95 from Friday’s program. The carryover had grown since Pimlico’s record-setting Preakness Day program May 21 that saw all-time highs reached in both total handle and attendance.

The winning 2-5-8-6-7-1 combination was completed when Black Swan Stable’s 3-year-old gelding Ruston Vow, ridden by Horacio Karamanos, won the 1 1/16-mile maiden claiming event on turf in his third career start and first for trainer Lacey Gaudet.

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.

First race post time is 1:10 p.m.

There will also be a $1 Super Hi-5 carryover Sunday of $2,946.27 for the opener.
