Gulfstream Park's elusive 10-cent Rainbow 6 was hit Friday afternoon for a record $3,591,245.44.Wow. That is crazy luck. You pretty much throw away $3100 bucks and somehow end up with $3.5 million?
The ticket was purchased at The Meadowlands in New Jersey. The winning ticket cost $3,118.50.
The previous record for a winning ticket on the Rainbow 6 was $791,364 on April 1, 2012. The previous record carryover was $5.1 million on April 23, 2011.
The Rainbow 6 is paid out when there is only one unique ticket with all six winners on the last six races of the day. Going into Friday's last race, there were five live tickets. The winner in the last race, Feline Forum, returned $23.
The Rainbow 6 has produced several large payoffs, including $414,166.52 (Jan. 2, 2012) and $327,110.71 (Dec. 23, 2012). The last time the Rainbow 6 was hit was Dec. 28 for $41,813.78.
