Gulfstream Rainbow 6 Carryover Reaches $845,000
HorseRacingFLA Staff Report
Gulfstream Park will have a Rainbow 6 carryover of $845,641 when it resumes racing on Wednesday.
First post will be 12:35 p.m. for the ten-race card.
The Rainbow 6 will be on races five to ten, with the sequence scheduled to start at 2:37 p.m.
The carryover has grown because Sunday, the most recent race day, was the 13th straight race day without the jackpot/carryover payout requirement of just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.
HorseRacingFLA has been using Equibase charts to track Gulfstream handle since August 2015. Our research shows that the current carryover is the fastest in the Rainbow 6 since then.
On Sunday there were seven tickets with all six winners. Each received $35,128.54 on the 20 cent per combination only bet.
Program numbers of the winning horses were 1-5-5-4-6-1.
Bettors added $439,160 to the Rainbow 6 pool. Per its rules on days with multiple winning tickets, Gulfstream took out 20 percent of the day’s bet. It divided 56 percent among tickets with six winners and added 24 percent to the carryover.
The relatively low number of winning tickets and relatively high payout was largely due to Majestic Luna, at 19
-1, wining the eighth race/first leg.
The late Pick 5, starting with the ninth race, paid $2,875 on the minimum 50 cent bet. Wagering on the Late Pick 5 was $576,589.
