January 30th, 2024

A TwinSpires account holder connected on the score of a lifetime, winning more than $1.8 million on the mandatory payout of the 20-cent Rainbow Pick 6 at Gulfstream Park on Sunday, Jan. 28.

Congratulations, indeed!

Using, the winning bettor invested a total of $345.60 on the Rainbow 6, which amounts to 1,728 combinations. He also credited Brisnet past performances for helping him identify winning longshots.

After the opening leg, Race 6, was won by the 5-2 favorite, longshots began to parade the scene. Break Out, the 8.70-1 sixth choice, got up late to secure the second leg of the series, and the remaining winners all paid more than $20 to win.

Bird Wildcat came rolling from just off the pace to record a convincing tally in the third leg at 11.20-1. It was the longest priced of the three horses the bettor used in that race. Next came Spirit Animal, who gamely secured a nose triumph at 10.30-1 over the 2.60-1 favorite the bettor also used.

The winning bettor utilized Brisnet’s pedigree and trainer stats, and Race Summary page, to help him locate the final two winners in the Rainbow 6. Bring Theband Home (9.10-1) and Sweet Mimi (25-1) made winning turf debuts in Races 10 and 11, respectively, both in wire-to-wire fashion.

Bring Theband Home was the longest priced of the four horses the bettor used in Race 10, while Sweet Mimi was the second-longest priced of six horses used in the final leg of the sequence. Notably, the winning bettor did not have the second-, third-, or fourth-place horses in Race 11.

The winning payout came to $1,804,431.20.
