20 CENT SINGLE TICKET WINNER PURCHASED FOR $307.20 THROUGH XPRESSBET.COM
ARCADIA, Calif. (Oct. 16, 2020)–At odds of 14-1, a 3-year-old maiden daughter of the late Unusual Heat helped key a massive $450,706.96 payout in Friday’s 20 cent Single Ticket Rainbow Pick Six Jackpot at Santa Anita.
Purchased for $307.20 through XpressBet.com, the single winning ticket holder had to be feeling good at the top of the stretch, as New Heat, ridden by Abel Cedillo and trained by Anthony Saavedra, enjoyed a 1 ½ length advantage, seconds later, that margin shrank precipitously, as New Heat held on to win by a diminishing neck at the wire.
Unhittable through the first 10 days of Santa Anita’s current Autumn Meet, there was a Rainbow Six carryover from Monday of $364,453. With $113,020 in new money wagered today, the total Jackpot pool reached $477,473 by third race post time.
