HALLANDALE BEACH, FL–The mandatory payout of the 20-cent Rainbow 6 pool Sunday at Gulfstream Park yielded $1,804,431.20 payoffs to three bettors holding tickets with all six winners.

Unsolved for 20 consecutive programs following a mandatory payout, the pool stood at $921,255.94 heading into Sunday’s Rainbow 6 wagering. A total of $5,615,409 was bet into the popular multi-race wager Sunday to increase the pool to $6,536,665.

The winning combination was 5 (Tidal Force $7), 11 (Break Out $19.40), 9 (Bird Wildcat $24.40), 10 Spirit Animal ($22.60), 11 (Bring Theband Home $20.20), 7 (Sweet Mimi $52.50) in the six-race sequence that spanned Races 6-11.

On mandatory-payout days, the entire Rainbow 6 jackpot pool is paid out to the bettor or bettors with the most winners in the wager’s six-race sequence. The carryover jackpot is usually 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 usually goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winner, while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool.

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 will start anew on Wednesday’s program.
