$71,000 Rainbow pick-6 is won for $2.40
A mere $2.40 ticket—with key horses in the first five legs--captured last Thursday's $71,145 (U.S.) Rainbow pick-6 at Gulfstream. The U.S. bettor bought a 20-cent wheel ticket that looked like this: 8-1-8-1-1-ALL. These were the race winners:
- Race 5 (maiden claimer for 2-year-old fillies): Bionsway (11/1)
- Race 6 (maiden claimer): Policy Portfolio (even money)
- Race 7 (non-winners 3L): Not Today (5/1)
- Race 8 (f & m non-winners 2L): Latent Princess (9/1)
- Race 9 (alw optional claimer): Bull Dozer (3/1)
- Race 10 (maiden claimer for 2-year-old fillies): Maria and Beto (42/1)
What a dream ticket heading into the last leg, eh? The ticket-holder had ALL which meant hoping and praying he hit a horse that gave him the entire pool – which is what happened.
