Talk about a late Christmas present!

Laurel Park’s 10-cent Rainbow 6 was hit Sunday afternoon by a single bettor for $140,827.44.

The winning numbers were 1-12-2-11-7-8. The sequence started with Stupefaction returning $5.60 in the fourth race and opening leg and ending with Grand Notion, the 6-5 favorite, winning the ninth race. The sequence also included the $37.60 winner Storm Rush in the eighth race. The ticket was hit by an Xpressbet customer.

Laurel’s Thursday afternoon program, with a first race post time of 12:25 p.m., will feature mandatory payouts and will include a Pick 5 carryover of $16,361.37 with an industry-low 12 percent takeout.


Jockey Nik Juarez rode two winners, returning to the winner’s circle aboard M J’s Warrior ($7) in the sixth and Storm Rush ($37.60) in the eighth… Trainer Cathal Lynch saddled Storm Rush to victory as well as Magic Harbor in the seventh.
