Sunday Carryovers at Tampa Bay, Gulfstream

Tampa Bay Downs has two carryovers on Sunday, on its nine-race card that has first post of 12:42 p.m.

At Gulfstream Park, the Rainbow 6 carryover has grown to $212,797 for Sunday. 

On Tampa Bay's first race, there is a Super High 5 carryover of $4,686. It is a $1 minimum bet that requires picking the first five finishers in correct order with no consolation payoffs.

Tampa Bay has a $27,240 carryover on its Late Pick 5.  It is on races five through nine, with the sequence starting at 2:43 p.m.  It is a 50-cent minimum bet.

At Gulfstream, first post is 12:00 p.m. for a 13-race card.

The Rainbow 6 is on races eight through 13, with the sequence beginning a 3:32 p.m.

The carryover is growing because Saturday was the sixth straight day without the jackpot payoff (80 percent of day's Rainbow 6 bet plus full carryover) of just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.

On Saturday, there were 742 tickets with all six winners and each received $229.40.

The payoff was low for the Rainbow 6 because five winners were at 5-2 or lower.  The exception was Gunnevera, who won the Fountain of Youth (Grade 2 at 4-1).

Saturday's Rainbow 6 wagering was $304,149. After a 20 percent takeout, Gulfstream divided 56 percent of that amount among tickets with all six winners and added 24 percent to the carryover.

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.
