Rainbow 6 Carryover Grows to $317,9000

Gulfstream Park will have a Rainbow 6 carryover of $317,841.65 on Saturday.

First post is 12:35 p.m. for a 12-race card that features the first four legs in the Florida Sire Stakes Series. The Rainbow 6 is on races seven to 12.

The carryover continues to grow because Friday was the 20th straight race day without the carryover/jackpot payoff requirement of just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.

On Friday there were 46 tickets with all six  winners. Each received $997.40.

The carryover coming in was $298,059.  Bettors added $82,451 to  the Rainbow 6 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 54 starters in Friday's Rainbow 6 races, for an average field size of 9.0.  All of the six winners were at  4-1 or lower, including one favorite.  That was a main reason for the relatively low winning price.

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