Gulfstream Park will have a Rainbow 6 carryover of $52,485.40 on Saturday
First post is 12:55 p.m. for an 11-race card. The Rainbow 6 is on races six to eleven.
On Friday, there were 69 tickets with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races. Each received $543.80 for a 20-cent only bet.
Gulfstream pays out the Rainbow 6 jackpot only on days when there is just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.
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.
The carryover coming in Friday was $36,373. Bettors added $67,188 to the Rainbow 6.
The winning combination was 6-1-5-8-5-2. Padilla won the 10th and final race at 7-1. All of the other winners were favorites at 7-2 or lower.
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.
