Dan Centeno retains the mount.

PREVIOUS RESULTS Lost $22 yesterday, the bankroll is now plus $107.60.

A 12-Race Sunday at Gulfstream; Carryovers

Gulfstream Park plans a 12-race card Sunday. First post is 1:10 PM. The last race gate will open about 6:40 PM.

The Rainbow 6 carryover will be $2,322,113 when racing starts Sunday; the 7th race is the start of that wager; with an approx. post time of 4:10 PM. There are 50 entries for those 6 races; 55 horses raced on Saturday.


On Saturday’s racing action, just 3 winners emerged on the Rainbow 6 wager, each pocketing $112,987 before taxes. Like Friday, just two winners were favorites on the day, and a 42:1 win by Raki  in race 10 was the outlier that made for the huge payday. As expected, the pool was $605,000 on the Rainbow bet.


 

There were 10 scratches in the Rainbow sequence to get to 55 starters. Interestingly, Race 7, which was out of the sequence (Rainbow was races 8-13), was won by Chief White Sox at 78:1, edging the favorite by a head. We think two long-odds wins will be needed for a single winner in the last 6 races on any race day.

The Late Pick 4 paid $27,117, and the Late Pick 5 paid $82,387 – kingly payouts to a few very lucky bettors.
The Super Hi-5 wager will show a carryover of $8,809 in the first race with 7 or more starters Sunday.

Good Luck, and don’t forget to subscribe – see top menu on this site.

Saturday's Gulfstream - 13 Races; $2.2 Mill Pick 6 Jackpot

Gulfstream Park plans a 13-race card Saturday as we enter day 84 of the 89 day meet that will end March 31. First post is 12:45 PM, and - if you have the energy - the last race gate will open about 6:40 PM.

In between, look for nice weather under fast - firm conditions, and two stakes races: The Any Limit Stakes, $75,000 in race 6, and the Hutcheson, $100,000. Both are Grade II on the dirt track at 6 furlongs for 3 year olds.

The Rainbow 6 carryover will be $2,176,843 when racing starts Saturday; the 8th race is the start of that wager; with an approx. post time of 4:10 PM.


On Friday's racing results, 106 winners cashed their Rainbow 6 tickets for $2,511.42 each. Just two winners were favorites on the 10 race card, but the odds were low on the remaining races. We look for increased pool sizes with the "whales" entering the betting as this $2 million plus jackpot grows.

 

Sixty-Five entrants are listed on the card today for those six races; a tough hurdle to ferret out a single winning ticket.

Gulfstream  pays it out only when there is  just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.

Gulfstream has six race days left in its 2018-2019 Championship meet.

A state law prohibits a pari-mutuel from extending a carryover into a new meet.


Thus, Gulfstream on or before March 31 will need to schedule a mandatory Rainbow 6 payout of the carryover  / jackpot even if there are multiple tickets with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.


If there is no single ticket winner prior to mandatory day, the carryover we esstimate could be $3 million or larger that day.
