There was just one winning ticket on the Rainbow 6 at Gulfstream Park on Friday, and it paid $505,610.72 on a 20 cent-only bet.
The program numbers on the six winning horses were 1-3-8-8-6-10.
The single ticket win takes most of the excitement away from Saturday, when there will be a mandatory payout on the Rainbow 6.
If there had been multiple wining tickets on Friday, the carryover on Saturday would have been almost $400,000.
Now. there will be no carryover going into Saturday.
However, multiple holders of winning tickets will divide 80 percent of the day’s Rainbow 6 bets.
On most days, those tickets divide 56 percent of the day’s Rainbow 6 bets and 24 percent goes into the carryover.
On Sunday, there also will be a new Rainbow 6 pool, with no carryover going in to the day.
