Gulfstream Park will have a Rainbow 6 carryover of $160,850 on Friday.
First post is 2:15 p.m. for a nine-race card. The Rainbow 6 is on races four to nine.
On Thursday there were 24 tickets with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races. Each received $1,777.96 on a 20-cent bet, and Gulfstream added $18,120 to the carryover.
Gulfstream pays out the Rainbow6 jackpot only 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).
When there are multiple winning tickets, Gulfstream takes out 20 percent of the day’s bet. It then divides 56 percent among tickets with the most winners (usually six) and adds 24 percent to the carryover.
On Thursday, the carryover coming in was $142,730. Bettors added $75,532 to the pool.
Thursday was the eighth day of Gulfstream’s summer meet and the eighth straight day without a jackpot payout.
On Thursday, all of the Rainbow 6 winners were at odds of 9-2 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.
