Gulfstream: First Post is 12:45 p.m. Saturday

Gulfstream Park will have an early first post of 12:45 p.m. on Saturday for a 12-race card.

There are no stakes races. But the card has 107 entrants, with just one Also Eligible. That assures there should be some attractive betting opportunities. 

There will be a carryover of $39,478 on the  Rainbow 6, which starts on the seventh race. It is a 20-cent-only per combination bet.

Friday was the sixth straight day without the jackpot-payoff requirement of just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.

There were seven tickets with all six winners, and each received $3,214.18.

The carryover coming into Friday was $30,152.
Bettors wagered an additional $38,870 on the Rainbow 6.

Per its formula on non-jackpot days, Gulfstream took out 20 percent of the day's bet.  It divided 56 percent of the bet among the seven winners and added 24 percent, $9,326, to the carryover.

It was a "non-bombers" day in the Rainbow 6.  Two winners were favorites, and the other four were at 9-2 or lower.
