GP WEst Has Super Hi-5 Carryover of $24,382.83

The Gulfstream Park West meet will resume on Friday  with a Super Hi-5 carryover of  $24,382.83 on the first race and with a new pool in the Rainbow 6.
First post on Friday is 12:35 p.m. for the ten-race card. The Rainbow 6 will start on the fifth race, with an unseeded pool.

On Sunday, the most recent race day, there were no winners of the Super Hi-5 on the last three races. The Super Hi-5 requires picking the first  five  finishers in correct order, with no consolation payoffs such as four of five. It is a $1 minimum bet.

Also on Sunday, there was just one winning ticket on the Rainbow 6. It paid $141,853.12 on the 20-cent only bet.

That jackpot payoff included a carryover of $67,077 that had built up  over eight race days—when there were multiple  tickets with the winners of all Rainbow  6 races.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday will be the  last three days of  the GP West meet. It is  held at Calder in Miami Gardens under  a lease agreement with  meet operator  Gulfstream Park.

Sunday will be a mandatory payout of the Rainbow 6 pool, including any carryover, regardless of the number of tickets with  all six winning horses.

At  meets run by Gulfstream, there is a 20 percent takeout on each day’s new Rainbow 6bet.

 On non-mandatory payoff days, when there are multiple winning tickets Gulfstream divides 56 percent  of  the day’s bets among the winning tickets and adds 24 percent to  the carryover.

GP West Sunday Card Topped by Dirt Sprint

The 11-race  Sunday card is underway at the  Gulfstream Park West  meet.

The dirt  track is listed as Fast  and the Turf  is listed as Firm
The feature tenth race is six  furlongs on dirt for Florida-bred fillies and mares 3-years-old and up.

It is a $12,500  optional  claimer with a $37,000 purse. 
Look for likely  favorite Coquivacoa (3) and J's Indian Charm (5) to set a fast pace.  We  think  that  could set things up for  closers Mighty Patriot (1) and  Flora  Fantasy (4).

It is a $12,500  optional  claimer with a $37,000 purse. 

There is a carryover of $67,077 on the Rainbow 6. It is on races  six to  eleven.

We will have a recap of the day's races on this blog on Sunday night.
