The 20-cent Rainbow 6 went unsolved for the 15th consecutive program Thursday, growing the jackpot carryover to $449,447.88 for Friday’s11-race program. First race post time is noon.


Cryogenic (8-1) was one of two horses live to take down the jackpot heading into the 10th-race finale and appeared on his way to victory in deep stretch before racing greenly and suddenly losing jockey Emisael Jaramillo approaching the wire.

Jaramillo was moving his extremities and taken from the track on a stretcher to Memorial Regional Hospital complaining of chest pain.

Tickets with five of six winners Thursday returned $1,935.52.


The Rainbow 6, which spans Races 6-11 Friday, was last hit for a $98,309.32 payoff Dec. 7, the fourth racing day of the 2017-18 Championship Meet.


The 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.


There will also be a carryover of $12,011.19 in the $1 Super Hi-5 for Friday’s opener, a one-mile maiden claimer on the grass.

Grade 3 Winners Hogy, Code Warrior Head New Year’s Day Stakes Noms


Michael Hui’s Hogy, winner of the Kentucky Downs Turf Sprint (G3) Sept. 9 in his first start off the claim for trainer Mike Maker, heads 15 horses nominated to the $75,000 Janus Stakes for 4-year-olds and up on the grass.


The Janus is joined by another five-furlong turf sprint, the $75,000 Abundantia for fillies and mares 4 and older, on a special 11-race New Year’s Day program that begins at noon.


Hogy, an 8-year-old Offlee Wild gelding, was claimed for $80,000 out of a runner-up finish Aug. 3 at Saratoga. After winning the 6 ½-furlong Kentucky Downs Turf Sprint, he rallied to finish second in the 5 ½-furlong Woodford (G2) and was no factor in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint (G1) Nov. 4, his most recent start.


Also nominated are multiple stakes winner Extravagant Kid, exiting back-to-back fall turf stakes wins at Gulfstream; Rainbow Heir and Successful Native; and stakes winners Chestnut Johnny, Pool Winner and Sir Navigator.


Code Warrior, owned and trained by Mike DePaulo, is among 11 horses nominated to the Abundantia. The 4-year-old Florida-bred filly won the 6 ½-furlong Hendrie (G3) June 4 and last out was third in the Ontario Fashion Stakes (G3) Oct. 28, both over Woodbine’s synthetic main track. She was fourth in the Royal North (G3) July 29 in her only previous turf try.


Eddie Broome-owned and trained Brandy’s Girl, whose multiple turf stakes wins include the five-furlong Jupiter Beach Aug. 20 at Gulfstream is also nominated along with Girls Know Best, a winner of three straight, and 2016 Melody of Colors winner More Royalty.

Who’s Hot: Jockey Nik Juarez posted a riding double aboard Nile Prince ($29) in the seventh race and Alaskan Prince ($13.20) in the ninth. Alaskan Prince was one of two winners on the day for owner Midwest Thoroughbreds and trainer Armando De La Cerda, along with Top of the Page ($14.60) in the fourth. De La Cerda also won the 10th with Revolving Son ($30.40).
