GP West Rainbow 6 Carryover Grows to $58,486


 
When it resumes racing on Wednesday, the  Gulfstream  Park West meet  will have  a carryover of $58,485 on its Rainbow 6.

On Sunday, there were six  tickets with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races. Each received $3,105.28 on a 20-cent  only bet.

First post on Wednesday will be 1:15 p.m. for the eight-race  card at Calder  in Miami Gardens.

The Rainbow 6 will be on the third through eighth races.


Wednesday will be the 12th day of the GP West meet, which  Gulfstream Park is running under its lease of the Calder track and stables.

Thus far there have been no days with the jackpot  payoff requirement of just one ticket with the winners  of all Rainbow 6  races.

That has kept the carryover growing.
The jackpot consists of the entire carryover plus 80 percent of the day’s wagering on the Rainbow 6.

On Sunday, the carryover coming in was $50,500.
Bettors added $33,307 to the Rainbow 6 pool
Per its rules on days with multiple winning tickets, Gulfstream took out 20 percent of the day’s bet. It then distributed 56 percent among winning tickets and added 24 percent to the carryover.

The Rainbow 6 is a 20-cent per combination-only bet. Multiple horses can be used in each race, thus setting up a ticket with multiple 20 cent combinations.  For example, a ticket with two horses in each race has 64 combinations and costs $12.80.

GP West Back on Turf for Saturday



Racing is back on the turf at the Gulfstream Park West meet on Saturday, with the course listed as Good.

The dirt track also is listed as Good for the ten-race card at Calder in Miami Gardens. First post is 1:15 p.m.  There are no stakes races.

The second, fourth, sixth, eighth and tenth races are scheduled for turf. The weather forecast is for a 20 percent chance of rain during racing hours.
The carryover is $42,078 on the Rainbow 6, which 
 starts on the fifth race.

We will have coverage and a wrap-up on this blog.

Saturday is the tenth day of the GP West meet; which Gulfstream Park runs under a lease with Calder.

Friday was the fourth day of the meet when all scheduled-for-turf races were taken off the turf due to wet conditions.

On Friday, six of the nine GP West races were moved from turf to the dirt track that was listed as Sloppy and was sealed.

That resulted in 21 scratches from the scheduled for turf races.  There were just 51 starters in the nine races.

All-sources handle was $2,826,813.  That was the second lowest at GP West for a Friday since 2015, when HorseRacingFLA began using Equibase data to report on handle at Gulfstream Park and at GP West.
