Gulfstream Park

From the Gulfstream Park Media Team:

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $1.4 million Wednesday at Gulfstream Park.

The popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the 10th racing day in a row Sunday, when multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $16,706.94.

The jackpot pool 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.
