Rainbow 6 Carryover at $15,318 for Return of Live Racing March 15

Meet-Leading Rider McCarthy Sweeps Final Three Races Sunday

LAUREL, MD – No single bettor had all six winners in Sunday’s 20-cent Rainbow 6 at Laurel Park, growing the jackpot carryover to $15,318.66 when live racing returns with a nine-race program Friday, March 15.

First-race post time is 1:10 p.m.

One horse, No Hitter, was live to take down the jackpot heading into Sunday’s ninth-race finale, won by 3-2 favorite My Good Man ($5). The popular multi-race wager began with a carryover of $12,566.86 from Saturday’s card. Multiple tickets with all six winners Sunday each returned $149.18.

The carryover jackpot is only paid out when there is a single unique ticket sold with all six winners. On days when there is no unique ticket, 60 percent of that day’s pool goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners, while 40 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool.

Friday’s jackpot is the largest in Laurel’s Rainbow 6 since a $17,184 carryover following the Dec. 16, 2018 program. The jackpot carryover reached $21,746 following the next live card Dec. 21 before being solved for a $31,286.30 payout Dec. 22.

Friday’s Rainbow 6 spans Races 4-9. Race 5 is a $45,000 second-level optional claiming allowance for fillies and mares 4 and older that drew a field of nine including 2018 Politely Stakes winner Elevated Vision. Wendell Fong, most recently fourth in the Miracle Wood Feb. 16, is among a dozen 3-year-olds entered in Race 8, a $42,000 entry-level optional claiming allowance. Both are carded at six furlongs.

My Good Man was the last of three consecutive winners to close Sunday’s program for jockey Trevor McCarthy, who also finished first aboard Brushing ($6.60) in Race 7 and Tbtwelve ($5.60) in Race 8. McCarthy leads the winter meet standings with 46 victories, 24 ahead Jevian Toledo and Victor Carrasco in second.
