New Rainbow 6 Carryover Starts at $2,884

The Gulfstream Park West meet will have a Rainbow 6 carryover of $2,884 when it resumes racing on Wednesday.

First post is 1:15 p.m. for an eight-race  card.  The Rainbow 6 is on the third through eighth races.

Gulfstream Park is holding the GP West meet at Calder, under a lease.

The start of a new carryover follows  the Sunday results when there were no tickets with the winners of all six races in the Rainbow 6.

So Gulfstream divided its non-jackpot payoff among  tickets with five winners. There were 37 such tickets, and each received $181.86 on the 20-cent per combination only bet.

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. The takeout is 20 percent on each day’s bet.

On Saturday, also the start of a new pool, there was just one Rainbow 6 winning ticket. It paid $10,308.68.

Thus, there was a new Rainbow 6 pool on Sunday.
Betting on the Rainbow 6 totaled $12,021.

Of that, Gulfstream took out 20 percent. It then divided 56 percent among tickets with the most winners (in this case five winners) and added 24 percent to the carryover.  That resulted in the carryover of $2,884 for Wednesday.
