Gulfstream Rainbow 6 Carryover Grows to $130,000

Scarlett O'Mara won the 11th and final  race at Gulfstream on Sunday setting up  a carryover of $130,147.41 in the Rainbow  6  when racing resumes on Thursday.

First post is 1:15 p.m. for the nine-race card. The Rainbow 6 is on races four through nine

The Rainbow 6 carryover continues because Sunday was the tenth straight race day without the carryover/jackpot requirement of just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.

Going into Sunday's eleventh and final race there were three live tickets, each with just one live horse--and none  with 4-5 favorite Scarlett O'Mara. 

The live horses were Starship Carnegie, Starship Sheba and Ballado Book.  They came in third, ninth and tenth respectively in the eleven-horse field.

If any had won, a  single ticket holder would have taken down a jackpot of about $175,000.

Instead, Scarlett O'Mara's win left no tickets with all six Rainbow  6 winning horses.  

There were 71 tickets with five winners, including  Scarlett O'Mara. Each received $625.26.

The carryover coming in was $111,233.84. Bettors wagered $78,811 on  the Rainbow 6.

Gulfstream  took out 20 percent of the day's Rainbow 6 bet. It divided 56 percent among tickets with five winners and put 24 percent into the carryover.

The  rare five-of-six payoff came on  a day with two long shot winners. Key Agent won the seventh race at 36-1 and Reagan's Odyssey won the ninth race at 15-1.

The other four winners, including Scarlett O'Mara, were 7-2 or lower.
