Fast and Firm Today at Gulfstream Park

Conditions are fast for the track and firm for the turf this Sunday at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla.

I'ts the Summer Doldrums this time of year here, when the Northern tracks garner a bit more attention due to their much shorter racing seasons.

But we're happy campers here with short lines, plentiful parking, and catching up with a few friends this weekend who share our passion for horse racing.

Easter Vigil won race 2 here as Tyler Gaffalione was under mount for trainer Ralph Nicks.

First post is 1:15 p.m. for an 11-race card.

Rainbow 6 Carryover Grows to $321,979

Gulfstream Park has a Rainbow 6 carryover of $321,979 on Sunday.

First post is 1:15 p.m. for an11-race card.

The Rainbow 6 is on races six to eleven.

On Saturday there were seven tickets with  the  winners of  all six Rainbow 6 races.  Each received $9.671.34on a 20-cent bet.

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

The jackpot is the combination of the full carryover plus 80 percent of the day’s new Rainbow 6 bet (20 percent takeout).

When there are multiple winning tickets, Gulfstream takes out 20 percent of the day’s bet. It then divides 56 percent among tickets with the most winners (usually six) and adds 24 percent to the carryover.

On Saturday, the carryover coming in was $292,865. Bettors added $120,970 to the pool.

Saturday was the 14th day of Gulfstream’s summer meet and the 14th straight day without a jackpot payout.

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.
