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.
