The Rainbow 6 paid $3,234.24 for a 20-cent bet at Gulfstream Park on Thursday.
By our calculation there were 232 winning tickets.
It was the final day of Gulfstream's spring meet and thus a mandatory payout day of the carryover plus 80 percent of the day's new Rainbow 6 bets. There is a 20 percent takeout on the Rainbow 6, which is a 20-cent per combination only bet.
The carryover was $102,570 going into Thursday. Bettors added
$810,601 to the Rainbow 6 pool. Minus the 20 percent takeout, winning tickets divided about $750,000.
The Late Pick 5 paid $818.60 for a 50-cent minimum bet. Bettors wagered $83,484 on the Late Pick 5, on which there also was a mandatory full payout.
Flash Jak, at 3-5 in the ninth race, and First Salute, at 5-2 in the tenth race, were the only two winning favorites in the late race sequences.
Total wagering on Friday's ten-race card was $4,840,796.
Gulfstream will begin a new Rainbow 6 pool on Friday. It will have nine races with first post of 1:15 p.m
Except for mandatory payout days, Gulfstream pays out the Rainbow 6 carryover and 80 percent of the day's pool only when there is just one ticket with the winners of all Rainbow 6 races.
Otherwise, Gulfstream divides 56 percent of the day's pool among tickets with the most winners and puts 24 percent into the carryover.
