One extremely fortunate horseplayer from New Jersey was holding a potentially life-changing ticket on Friday, holding the only winning wager with a payoff of nearly $3.6 million.

Gulfstream Park's elusive 10-cent Rainbow 6 was hit Friday afternoon for a record $3,591,245.44. The ticket was purchased at The Meadowlands in New Jersey. The winning ticket cost $3,118.50.

The previous record for a winning ticket on the Rainbow 6 was $791,364 on April 1, 2012. The previous record carryover was $5.1 million on April 23, 2011.

The Rainbow 6 is paid out when there is only one unique ticket with all six winners on the last six races of the day. Going into Friday's last race, there were five live tickets. The winner in the last race, Feline Forum, returned $23. The last time the Rainbow 6 was hit was Dec. 28 for $41,813.78.

Friday's 10-cent Rainbow 6 started with Keyner Veloz winning the fifth race and paying $114. The rest of the winners were Original Cast ($11.40) in the sixth, Odalys Halo ($36.80) in the seventh, Artie's Jasper ($17.20) in the eighth, Mays Treasuretrove ($23.60) in the ninth and Feline Forum in the 10th.
