From a Maryland Jockey Club release

There will be carryovers in the 20-cent Rainbow 6, 50-cent Late Pick 5 and $1 Super Hi-5 wagers for Friday’s nine-race program at Pimlico Race Course.

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

Thanks to long shot winners Debbie’s Tude ($19.60) in the first leg of the Rainbow 6 and Read All About It ($18.40) in the fourth, no horses were live in the popular multi-race wager heading into Thursday’s finale, creating a carryover of $3,652.10. Tickets with five of six winners returned $47.78.

The Rainbow 6 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, 70 percent of that day’s pool goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool.

Beaches N Bourbon’s 25-1 upset of Thursday’s ninth race also created a carryover of $7,061.27 in the Late Pick 5 that covers Races 5-9 on Friday and $5,454.65 in the Super Hi-5 for Friday’s opener.

Friday’s Rainbow 6 spans Races 4-9 and includes a $42,000 allowance for fillies and mares 3 and up that drew a field of nine in Race 6, and a $47,000 optional claiming allowance for 3-year-olds and up in Race 8. Both are set for 1 1/16 miles on the grass.

Note: Jockey Trevor McCarthy registered a pair of winners Thursday with Rafidain ($4.20) in the second race and Gem Twist ($4.80) in the fifth. Jockey Horacio Karamanos also had a riding double, bookending the card aboard Figaro Figaro ($6) in the first race and Beaches N Bourbon ($58.50) in the ninth.
