There will be eight races on Thursday with first post of 1:15 p.m.
The Rainbow 6 will be on races three through eight. It is a 20-cent only per combination bet, with multiple horses permitted in each race and thus multiple combinations.
On Thursday’s first race, there will be a carryover of $2,595.15 on the Super Hi-5. It is a $1 minimum bet that requires picking the first five finishers in correct order—with no consolation payoffs.
On Wednesday there were no winning Super Hi-5 tickets on either of the last two races.
Gulfstream Park is holding the GP West meet at Calder Casino as part of a lease agreement.
On Wednesday there were twenty tickets with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races. Each received $232.86.
She Read My Texts, the 9-5 favorite, won the eighth and last race by two lengths over Crimson Spade at 54-1.
Crimson Spade was one of three horses that were singled on a live ticket going into the eighth race. A win by any of them would have resulted in a single Rainbow 6 winner.
Gulfstream pays out the full Rainbow 6 jackpot (all of the carryover plus 80 percent of the day’s bet) only on days when there is just one ticket with all six winners.
There was just one ticket with all six winners on Sunday, the most recent race date prior to Wednesday
Bettors started the new Rainbow 6 pool with $8,342. Of that, Gulfstream took out 20 percent. It then divided 56 percent among tickets with the most winners (in this case six winners) and added 24 percent to the carryover.
On Wednesday, all of the Rainbow 6 winners were 3-1 or lower including two favorites. The six races had 46 starters for an average of 7.67 per race.
On Thursday the Rainbow 6 races have 60 entries, including main track only and also eligibles.
