Gulfstream Rainbow 6 Carryover Nears $50,000

Gulfstream Park will have a Rainbow 6 carryover of $49,852.58 on Friday.

First post is 12:50 p.m. for a ten-race card.  The Rainbow 6 is on races five through ten.  The six races have 53 entrants, including one also eligible and one main track only.

The carryover continues to grow because Thursday was the sixth straight race day without the carryover/jackpot payoff requirement of just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.

On Thursday there were 15 tickets with all six  winners. Each received $1,373.46

The carryover coming in was $41,023.  Bettors added $36,833 to the pool.

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

Going into Thursday’s tenth race, one live ticket would have taken down the $70,454 jackpot/carryover if the 4 horse Blindedbythetruth won the race.

That horse was never in contention and finished seventh in the ten-horse field. Street Brilliant, the 5-2 second betting choice, won the race.

There were 51 starters in Thursday's Rainbow 6 races, for an average field size of 8.4.  The seventh race was won by Red Crescent at 13-1. The other five winners were 5-1 or lower, including two favorites. 

The Rainbow 6 is a 20-cent per combination only bet, Bettors can use multiple horses in each race and thus have multiple combinations.
