Gulfstream Rainbow 6 Pays $810,713; New Pool Wednesday

Gulfstream Park will have a new pool on its Rainbow 6 when it resumes racing on Wednesday.

First post will be 12:35 p.m. for a ten-race card.  The Rainbow 6 will be on races five through ten.

There will be a new pool because on Sunday there was a single winning ticket, and the jackpot payoff was $810,713.24.

That was a combination of the carryover of $572,495 and 80 percent of the day’s bet of $297,827 on the Rainbow 6. There is a 20 percent takeout on each day’s Rainbow 6 bet, but no takeout on money once it is in the carryover.

The carryover had built up over 14 race days on  which there were multiple tickets with all six winners.

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.
