With DQ, Rainbow 6 Hit for $79,000 at GP West

A disqualification in today's tenth and final race at the Gulfstream Park West meet resulted in there being just one winning ticket in  the Rainbow 6--for $79,095.52.

Tonite Tonite (6-5) came in  first by a half-length over Dancin in the Heat (3-1) in the $10.000 maiden claiming race at one  mile on dirt for  3-year-olds and up.

But stewards  reversed the order after they determined that Tonite Tonite, clinging to  the lead and  racing on  the inside,  interfered with Dancin  in  the Heat in the stretch run.  In  addition Pedro  Monterey Jr., rider of Dancin  in  the  Heat, filed an  objection against Manoel  Cruz, rider of Tonite Tonite.

Watching the race live the bumping  was clearly apparent. The head-on replay showed Tonite Tonite veering out and causing Dancin in the  Heat to alter  stride.

Gulfstream Park  is holding the GP West meet at Calder  under a lease agreement with that track.

The  Rainbow 6 is on each day's  last six races,  and is a 20-cent  per combination only bet.

At the GP West  meet and at its  own  track, Gulfstream pays out the full Rainbow 6 pool (day's bets plus  carryover) only on days when there is just one ticket with the winners of all  six races

On other days  it divides 70 percent of the day's Rainbow 6 bets (minus the 20 percent takeout) among tickets with the most winners and puts the remaining 30 percent into the carryover.

The  GP West  meet will resume on Wednesday with ten  races and first post of 12:35 p.m.  There will be the start of a  new  Rainbow 6 pool.

Wednesday will  be the 27th day of the GP West meet which will close on Nov. 28.  If a carryover extends into that day Gulfstream under state law must pay out  the full pool (day's  bets  plus carryover) even if there  are multiple winning tickets.

State laws prohibit Gulfstream  from extending any GP West carryovers into the Gulfstream championship meet that will begin on Dec. 5.
