Pimlico Bettor Strikes for Huge Pick 6
Sunday, June 4, 2023
    BALTIMORE – One lucky bettor solved the 20-cent Rainbow 6 for a life-changing jackpot payout of $547,686 Saturday at Pimlico Race Course on the penultimate day of the Preakness Meet.

    Freeze the Fire ($30.40) sprung a front-running 14-1 upset of 1-2 favorite Dillinger in the Race 9 finale to complete the winning 1-6-4-6-9-3 combination. Other winners in the sequence were God Is Love ($18.80) in Race 4, Admit Nothing ($6.60) in Race 5, Community Adjusted ($8.40) in Race 6, Wudi ($6.20) in Race 7 and Linny Kate ($13.20) in Race 8.

    Saturday’s bonanza came one day before a scheduled mandatory payout in the Rainbow 6, Jackpot Super High Five and Late Pick 5 wagers. The Rainbow 6 had gone unsolved for 13 days since a $364.74 mandatory return on May 7, closing day of Laurel Park’s spring meet.

    The Rainbow 6 will begin anew on today’s eight-race closing day program that begins at 12:25 p.m. The sequence spans Races 3-8 and includes a maiden special weight for fillies and mares ages 3, 4 and 5 scheduled for five furlongs on the grass in Race 6 and an optional claiming allowance for fillies and mares 3 and up sprinting six furlongs in Race 7.

    Introduced in Maryland on April 2, 2015, opening day of Pimlico’s spring meet, the state-record Rainbow 6 carryover reached $1,435,080.75 over 27 racing programs before a mandatory payout of $31,028 to multiple ticketholders on July 4, 2021.

    There will be a carryover of $490,727 in the Jackpot Super High Five for today, which takes place in Race 6. The Jackpot Super High Five went unsolved for a ninth straight racing day Saturday, producing multiple winning tickets worth $1,233 after $36,484 was wagered on top of a $475,656.86 carryover from Friday.
