BAUER'S BETS: Fast & Firm at Tampa

A competitive field of seven four year-olds and up go nine grassy furlongs under $32,000 NW2X Optional Claiming conditions, in Race 6, Post is 3 PM.

(5) PATS SHOES is very sharp since being claimed by the red-hot Navarro outfit. He won his last race (taken off the grass) by twelve lengths and he is overdue to get his first win on the lawn.
Dan Centeno retains the mount.

THE BET $10 to win on (5) PATS SHOES and a $2 exacta box with (1) TIZ SAMURAI and (2) SARRASIN. 1,2,5. Total Bet $22 GOOD LUCK!

PREVIOUS RESULTS Lost $22 yesterday, the bankroll is now plus $107.60.

A 12-Race Sunday at Gulfstream; Carryovers

Gulfstream Park plans a 12-race card Sunday. First post is 1:10 PM. The last race gate will open about 6:40 PM.

The Rainbow 6 carryover will be $2,322,113 when racing starts Sunday; the 7th race is the start of that wager; with an approx. post time of 4:10 PM. There are 50 entries for those 6 races; 55 horses raced on Saturday.


On Saturday’s racing action, just 3 winners emerged on the Rainbow 6 wager, each pocketing $112,987 before taxes. Like Friday, just two winners were favorites on the day, and a 42:1 win by Raki  in race 10 was the outlier that made for the huge payday. As expected, the pool was $605,000 on the Rainbow bet.


 

There were 10 scratches in the Rainbow sequence to get to 55 starters. Interestingly, Race 7, which was out of the sequence (Rainbow was races 8-13), was won by Chief White Sox at 78:1, edging the favorite by a head. We think two long-odds wins will be needed for a single winner in the last 6 races on any race day.

The Late Pick 4 paid $27,117, and the Late Pick 5 paid $82,387 – kingly payouts to a few very lucky bettors.
The Super Hi-5 wager will show a carryover of $8,809 in the first race with 7 or more starters Sunday.

Good Luck, and don’t forget to subscribe – see top menu on this site.

BAUER'S BETS: Fast & Firm at Tampa

A field of eight older fillies and mares will travel a grassy mile and three-eighths in a $16,000 Handicap, in Race 6. Post time for this marathon on the lawn is 3:15 PM.

(3) HANIEL may be the lone early speed here and have an edge. There are a few unknowns because most of this group has never gone this distance. (3) HANIEL has run with good fields in Kentucky and has been freshened since November and has logged a pair of bullet works at the Classic Mile.

THE BET $10 to win on (3) HANIEL and a $2 exacta box with (6) AQUEMINI and (8) NICK'S ROSE 3,6,8.    Total Bet $22   GOOD LUCK!!

PREVIOUS RESULTS  Yesterday's win bet returned $42.50, had first and third in the exacta.
Made a profit of $5.50 for the day. The bankroll is now plus $129.60.

Saturday's Gulfstream - 13 Races; $2.2 Mill Pick 6 Jackpot

Gulfstream Park plans a 13-race card Saturday as we enter day 84 of the 89 day meet that will end March 31. First post is 12:45 PM, and - if you have the energy - the last race gate will open about 6:40 PM.

In between, look for nice weather under fast - firm conditions, and two stakes races: The Any Limit Stakes, $75,000 in race 6, and the Hutcheson, $100,000. Both are Grade II on the dirt track at 6 furlongs for 3 year olds.

The Rainbow 6 carryover will be $2,176,843 when racing starts Saturday; the 8th race is the start of that wager; with an approx. post time of 4:10 PM.


On Friday's racing results, 106 winners cashed their Rainbow 6 tickets for $2,511.42 each. Just two winners were favorites on the 10 race card, but the odds were low on the remaining races. We look for increased pool sizes with the "whales" entering the betting as this $2 million plus jackpot grows.

 

Sixty-Five entrants are listed on the card today for those six races; a tough hurdle to ferret out a single winning ticket.

Gulfstream  pays it out only when there is  just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.

Gulfstream has six race days left in its 2018-2019 Championship meet.

A state law prohibits a pari-mutuel from extending a carryover into a new meet.


Thus, Gulfstream on or before March 31 will need to schedule a mandatory Rainbow 6 payout of the carryover  / jackpot even if there are multiple tickets with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.


If there is no single ticket winner prior to mandatory day, the carryover we esstimate could be $3 million or larger that day.

Gulfstream Friday: Rainbow 6 Carryover Tops $2 Million


The Rainbow 6 carryover at Gulfstream Park is  25 race  days old  and has grown to $2,062,710.

That carryover/jackpot will be up for grabs  on Friday.

First post is 1:15  p.m. for  a ten-race card. The Rainbow  6 is on races  five  to ten, with  the sequence  scheduled  to start  at  3:30 p.m.

The jackpot/carryover consists of the entire carryover plus 80 percent of the day’s  new bets on the Rainbow  6 (20  percent takeout).

Gulfstream  pays it out only when there is  just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.

On Thursday, there were 830 tickets with all six winners.  Each was paid $260.44 on the 20-cent only bet.

Thursday’s wagering on the Rainbow 6 was $386,165.

Per  its  rules on days with multiple  winning tickets Gulfstream took out 20 percent of the day’s bet, divided 56 percent among tickets with six winners and added 24 percent to the  carryover.

The program numbers of the  six  winning horses were 5-3-9-3-6-2.

The payoff was relatively low because  four winners  were favorites and the other  two had odds of 7-2.

Gulfstream has seven race days left in its 2018-2019 championship meet, which ends on Sunday March  31.

A state law prohibits a pari-mutuel from extending a carryover  into a  new meet.

Thus, Gulfstream on or before March 31 will  need to schedule a mandatory Rainbow 6 payout of the carryover/jackpot even if there are multiple tickets with the winners of all  six Rainbow 6 races.

If there is no single ticket winner prior to mandatory day, the carryover could be $3 million or larger that day.

Favorite Wins GP Rainbow 6 Opener

Makealittlemischief (5) , the 3-2 favorite, led at every call and won Thursday's fifth race at Gulfstream to start the Rainbow 6.

The carryover, 24 days old, was $1,970,071 coming into  the day. Bettors added $386,165 to the Rainbow 6 pool.

Luis Saez rode Makealittlemischief for trainer  Todd Pletcher in the 7  1/2 furlong maiden special turf race for  3-YO  fillies.  The winning time was  1:31.81.

Gulfstream Fast and Firm for Thursday

The dirt track is listed as fast  and the turf course is listed as firm for  Thursday's  ten-race card at Gulfstream Park.

First post is 1:15 p.m. for the program that has a Rainbow 6 carryover of  $1,970,071.

On Wednesday, Gulfstream moved all four  scheduled-for-turf races to  the dirt  following heavy rains on Tuesday  night and early Wednesday.


Five of Thursday's races are scheduled for turf. Those are the third, fifth, seventh, ninth and tenth races.

The Weather Channel  forecast is for just a 15 percent chance of rain during racing hours.

The Rainbow 6 will begin on the fifth race, with  a scheduled post of  3:15 p.m. The carryover has grown because Gulfstream has gone 24 straight race days without the jackpot/carryover payoff requirement of just one ticket with the  winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.

On Thursday morning, four horses were scratched from the Rainbow 6 races.  Those horses, with program numbers, are:

Fifth race -  Irish Princess (2)
Seventh  race -- Catoutofthebag (2)
Tenth race -- Bar Libre (1) and Livinadream (10)

That leaves the Rainbow 6 races with 46  entrants --a relatively  low number.

That  increases the chances that there will again be multiple winning  tickets, and an extension of  the carryover into Friday. 

$2 Million Rainbow 6 Up for Grabs: Gulfstream's Thursday

Gulfstream Park will continue its Champions Meet Day #82 Thursday, with ten races and first post of 1:15 p.m.


The Rainbow 6 jackpot was not hit yesterday, and the carryover will be $1,970,071 today. Adding in approx. $250,000 to the pool today, the jackpot will be well over $2 million.

We think 2 or 3 highs odds horses winning in the 6 race sequence will be needed to garner just a single winning wager. Gulfstream may announce a mandatory payout on March 30th, Florida Derby Day, as it has in past years.


The Rainbow 6, a 20-cent per combination only bet, will be on races five to ten with the sequence scheduled  to start at 3:15 p.m.


The carryover has grown because Gulfstream has gone 24 straight race days without the jackpot payoff requirement of just one ticket with the winners of all six races.


The jackpot consists of the entire carryover plus 80 percent of the day’s new bets on the Rainbow 6 (20 percent takeout). In Wednesday’s action, all races were taken off the turf, and low odds winners were the norm.

The Rainbow 6 paid $667.42 to about 250 winners. Four of six legs were won by the favorites.


The Late Pick-4 paid $175.95, while the Late Pick-5 paid $213.95. Good Luck !

Gulfstream Park will resume live racing on Wednesday, with ten races and first post of 1:15 p.m.

The only carryover is on the Rainbow 6—and it is a whopping $1,900.013, or roughly $1.9 million. 

The Rainbow 6, a 20-cent per combination only bet, will be on races  five  to ten with the sequence  scheduled  to start  at  3:15 p.m.

The carryover has grown because Gulfstream has gone 23 straight race days without the jackpot payoff requirement    of just one ticket with the winners of all six races.

The jackpot consists of the entire carryover plus 80 percent of the day’s  new bets on the Rainbow  6 (20  percent takeout).

On days with multiple winning tickets, Gulfstream takes out 20 percent of the day’s new Rainbow 6 bets. Of that, it then divides 56 percent among winning tickets and adds 24 percent to the carryover.
