Gulfstream Carryovers for Wednesday
Gulfstream Park will have a carryover of $14,153.20 in the Rainbow 6 when it resumes racing on Wednesday.
First post is 12:35 p.m. for a ten-race card. The Rainbow 6 is on races five through ten.
The first race has a Super Hi-5 carryover of $5,429.31. The bet is $1 minimum and requires picking the first five finishers in correct order, with no consolation payoffs.
There were no winning Super Hi-5 tickets on Sunday’s 11th and final race, thus leading to the carryover.
Gulfstream began a new Rainbow 6 pool on Sunday.
There were five tickets with the winners of all six races. Each received $6,604.84.
Bettors wagered $58,976. Gulfstream put $14,153.20 into the new carryover. The Rainbow 6 has a 20 percent takeout.
Gulfstream pays out the Rainbow 6 jackpot (carryover plus 80 percent of the day’s bet) only on days when there is just one ticket with the winners of all six races.
On days with multiple winning tickets it takes out the 20 percent. It then divides 56 percent among tickets with the most winners (in Sunday’s case six) and puts 24 percent into the carryover.
There was a new pool on Sunday because it followed a Saturday on which Gulfstream had a highly publicized mandatory payout on the Rainbow 6.
On a mandatory day, it pays out the jackpot/carryover even if there are multiple tickets with all six winners.
However, on Friday there was just one ticket with all six winners—and it took down the jackpot of $505,610.72.
Gulfstream reported that the ticket was bought in Maryland and cost $900.
On Saturday, there was no carryover going in and $157,275 was bet on the Rainbow 6. There were four tickets with all six winners, and each received $31,438.12.
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.
