GP West Rainbow 6 Carryover Surpasses $20,000
The Gulfstream Park West meet will have a Rainbow 6 carryover of $20,951.83 on Saturday.
Gulfstream Park is holding the GP West meet at Calder Casino as part of a lease agreement.
There will be ten races with first post of 1:15 p.m. The Rainbow 6 will be on races five through ten. It is a 20-cents only per combination bet, with multiple horses permitted in each race and thus multiple combinations.
On Friday there were three tickets with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races. Each received $3.689.86.
Gulfstream pays out the full Rainbow 6 jackpot (all of the carryover plus 80 percent of the day’s bet) only on days when there is just one ticket with all six winners.
Friday was the fifth straight race day with multiple winning tickets in the Rainbow 6 races.
The carryover coming in on Friday was $15,448.
Bettors added $19,799 to the pool. Of that, Gulfstream took out 20 percent. It then divided 56 percent among tickets with the most winners (in this case six winners) and added 24 percent to the carryover.
