Gulfstream Park will have a carryover of $79,451 on its Rainbow 6 when it resumes racing on Thursday.
And we emphasize Thursday.
Gulfstream is dark this week on Wednesday—usually a live race day.
The Thursday card has eleven races, with first post of 12:35 p.m.
The Rainbow 6 is on the sixth through. It is 20-cents only and has a 20 percent takeout of each day’s wagering.
Thursday will be the fourth day of the current Rainbow 6 carryover cycle.
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 Gulfstream takes out the 20 percent. It then divides 56 percent among tickets with the most winners (usually six) and puts 24 percent into the carryover.
There was a single Rainbow 6 winning ticket last Thursday. It paid $324,180.
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.
