With the middle jewel in racing’s Triple Crown, the Grade 1 Preakness Stakes, scheduled for next Saturday, Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif., has announced a mandatory payout in its popular 20 Rainbow Pick 6 Jackpot the following day, Sunday, May 16.
Providing there is no Single Ticket Rainbow 6 winner on Friday or Saturday, and an expected carryover in place heading into next Sunday of more than $500,000, track officials project Sunday’s total Rainbow Pick 6 pool could approach $4 million. As an additional enticement to players, 1/ST Bet, the official app of Santa Anita Park, is offering Sunday’s players a free wager, up to $10, on Sunday’s Rainbow Pick 6.
In order to be eligible, players are asked to download the 1/ST Bet app and to place a wager on Sunday’s Rainbow 6, and the first $10 will be on the house.
With entries to be taken on Thursday for a nine-race card Sunday, the Rainbow 6 will begin with Sunday’s fourth race, which has an approximate post time of 2:30 p.m. PT.
First post time on Sunday will be at 1 p.m. and the Grade 3, $100,000 Desert Stormer Stakes, for fillies and mares at six furlongs, will highlight the nine-race program.
Although there is still no walk-up admission, Santa Anita is now open to the public on a limited basis by visiting santaanita.com
