For the second day in a row, the Rainbow 6 was hit at the Gulfstream Park West meet--and on Sunday it paid $8,766.34 for a 20-cent bet.
Going into the tenth and final race there were seven live Rainbow 6 tickets. Only one of those tickets had first-time starter Midway Playa, who won the race at 9-1 with red-hot Luca Panici riding for trainer Eric Guillot.
Midway Playa beat Tommy's Top Cat by four lengths in the six-furlong maiden claiming race for 2-YOs. He won in 1:12.22 on the sloppy and sealed track at Calder.
Saturday also was a day with just one Rainbow 6 ticket with all six winners. It paid $30,871, including a carryover that had built up over five days when there were multiple Rainbow 6 winning tickets.
The Sunday winning Rainbow 6 numbers were 4.4/4/2/10/11. Other than Midway Playa, the odds ranged between 2-1 and 4--1, and none of them was the betting favorite.
Bettors put $10,965 into a new Rainbow 6 pool. Gulfstream took out 20 percent and paid the remainder to the single winner, who thus far has not been identified.
The next GP West race day will be Wednesday with eight races and first post of 1:15 p.m. There will be a new Rainbow 6 pool, on races three through eight.
NOTE--In a blog posting prior to the tenth race, we suggested a four-horse exacta box of Tommy's Top Cat (2), Gray Dude (5), Rosebud's High (9) and Midway Playa (11).
The exacta was 11-2 and the $1 payoff was $84.10 on a ticket that would have cost $12.00.
*In Wednesday's first race there will be a carryover of $1,564.78 on the Super HI-5 which requires picking the first five finishers in correct order. It is a $1 bet with no consolation payoffs.
