GP Rainbow Carryover Grows Past $100,000

There were eight tickets with all six winners in Gulfstream Park's Rainbow 6 on Sunday, with each ticket receiving $6,246.30.

It was the seventh straight day without a single winner, the requirement for the carryover-jackpot payoff. Thus, the carryover keeps growing and will be $119,149 when racing resumes on Wednesday with eight races and first post of 12:55 p,m.

The carryover coming in Sunday was $97,733.  Bettors added $89,265 to the Rainbow 6.

Gulfstream took out 20 percent. As on all days with multiple tickets with all six winners, Gulfstream divided 56 percent of the day's bet among those winners and added 24 percent to the carryover.

Sunday's relatively small number of winners was largely a result of Crowning Affair, at 30-1, winning the seventh race. Three  winners were low-odds favorites, one was 5-1 and one was 7-1.

*Emisael Jaramillo rode three winners and Edgard Zayas rode two winners on Sunday.

They are tied for first at 17 wins after the first 15 days of the Spring Meet.  Eddie Castro and defending champion Tyler Gaffalione are tied for third with 12 wins, followed by Nik Juarez with 11.

John Cruz, a  five-pound apprentice, rode two winners on Sunday and has ten for the meet.
