Horse Racing FLA has monitored the Gulfstream Park wagering handle since August, 2015 and going into Wedenesday, the Rainbow 6 carryover is the largest in any first 8 days at least since 2015. The largest previous was $315,048 on Jan. 19th 2019 in the last big cycle.
The Saturday Rainbow handle number of $320,408 is the 5th largest pool for non-mandatory payout days. All four higher were in the last cycle. The record pool was last month at $660,702 set Saturday, January 26th, which was Pegasus World Cup Invitational Day.
In Sunday's racing action, 105 starters left the gates, pursuing $439,000 in purses, and the high odds winner was just 8:1 on the day.
Just 4 odds-favorites won their races Sunday, and just 1 won in the last 6 races, but the odds were 6:1 or lower in the last 5 races. Fifty-three starters competed in the Rainbow 6 wager (races 8-13).
The Rainbow 6 jackpot keeps rolling up as the daily pools are averaging $207,000 since the jackpot was last hit on Feb. 15th by a single winning ticket-holder. $300,680 was bet on Sunday on the Rainbow, and $11.34 million was the total handle.
