This after exotic wager went unresolved for 17 race days

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 was solved by one lucky bettor Friday at Gulfstream Park for a life-changing jackpot payout of $1,200,305.88.

Jockey Corey Lanerie guided Canelo ($67.20) – a 4-year-old Gemologist gelding making just his second career start – to a front-running 32-1 upset of Friday’s Race 10 finale to complete the winning 3-3-8-7-5-3 combination.

Other winners in the sequence were Souper Legacy ($4.60) in Race 5, American Starlet ($9.20) in Race 6, Bahamian Rhapsody ($25) in Race 7, Family Time ($30.80) in Race 8 and Collaborate ($7.60) in Race 9.

The Rainbow 6 had gone unsolved for 17 consecutive race days since last solved for a $407,067.66 payout Dec. 11. A total of $348,367 was put into the popular multi-race wager Friday, which had a guaranteed gross jackpot pool of $1.3 million.

Saturday’s 11-race program will feature a mandatory payout of the Rainbow 6, which will have a guaranteed gross jackpot pool of $250,000.

The Rainbow 6 is 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.

However, on mandatory payout days the entire pool is paid out to the bettor or bettors with the most winners in the six-race sequence.
