Gulfstream’s New Rainbow 6 Carryover is $13,701

Gulfstream Park will have a Rainbow 6 carryover of $13,701 when it resumes racing on Wednesday, with nine races and first post of  12:55 p.m.

The Rainbow 6 will be on races four through nine  with the sequence scheduled to start at 2:34 p.m.

On Sunday, there were 29 tickets with the winners of all six  Rainbow 6 races. Each received $1,102.34.

It  was the  first day of a new Rainbow  6 pool.  On Saturday, there was just one  ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.  It took down the jackpot payoff of $77,343.

The jackpot is the combination of the full  carryover plus 80 percent of the day’s new Rainbow 6 bet (20 percent takeout).
On days with multiple winning tickets, Gulfstream takes out 20 percent of the day’s Rainbow 6 bet. It then divides 56 percent of the day’s Rainbow 6 bet among tickets with the most winners (usually six) and adds 24 percent to the carryover.

On Sunday, $57.158 was bet on the Rainbow 6.

Four of the Rainbow 6 winners were favorites, and the other two were 6-1 and 7-1.  That resulted in the relatively large number of winning tickets.

Strayana, at 9-5, won the tenth and final race.  Melody Croon and Cape Magic were singled on different tickets, and a win by either would have taken down the jackpot.  They  finished fifth and sixth.

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.
