Gulfstream Rainbow 6 Carryover Reaches $150,000

Gulfstream Park will have a Rainbow 6 carryover of $150,895.28 on Thursday, its next race day.

First post is 12:50 p.m. for the10-race card.  The Rainbow 6 is on races five to ten

The carryover continues to grow because Sunday was the 14th straight race day without the carryover/jackpot payoff requirement of just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.

On Sunday there were six tickets with all six  winners. Each received $6,830.16

The carryover coming in was $133,332.  Bettors added $73,193 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.

There were 46 starters in Sunday's Rainbow 6 races, for an average field size of 7.7.  There was one winner at 12-1. All other winners in the sequence were 8-1 or lower, including two favorites.

That is an indication of how just one double-digit odds winner can be a knockout for many Rainbow 6 bettors---especially  those who are not part of syndicates and  have limits on how deep  they can go  in some races.

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

Another attraction on Sunday was a carryover of $30.868 on the Late Pick 5.  The carryover was a product of there being no tickets with all five winners on Saturday.

On Sunday, carryover-chasing bettors wagered  $153,309 on the Late Pick 5—more than three times the $48,584 wagered on that bet on Saturday.

The Sunday payoff  on a ticket with  all five winners was $1,060.15 for the minimum 50-cent bet. Tickets with four of five winners received $11.50 for  a  50-cent  bet.
