Gulfstream Park’s Rainbow 6 carryover will be $1,010,856 on Friday.
Gulfstream will have eleven races with first post of 12:35 p.m. The Rainbow 6 will be on races six to eleven, with the sequence scheduled to begin at 3:02 p.m.
The Rainbow 6 carryover has been growing because Thursday was the 20th straight race day without the jackpot payoff requirement of just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races. The jackpot is the full carryover plus 80 percent of the day’s new Rainbow 6 bets.
Thursday’s Rainbow 6 was dominated by low odds winners. There were 895 ticket with all six winners. Each received $190.42, under the non-jackpot day payout of 56 percent of Thursday’s bet to tickets with the most winners (in Thursday’s case six). Gulfstream added 24 percent to the carryover.
Wagering on the Rainbow 6 was $304,327 om Thursday—highest for a weekday during the current championship meet.
