GP West: Multi-Race Carryovers on Friday

 By Jim Freer
Carryovers on the Late Pick 5 and on the Rainbow 6 will be main attractions on Friday at the Gulfstream Park West meet.

First post is 12:35 p.m. for the ten-race card. Gulfstream Park is holding the GP West meet at Calder under a lease agreement.
The main track is listed as fast and the turf is listed as firm.  The Weather Channel Forecast is for a zero percent chance of rain during racing hours.

The card has nine claiming races and one maiden special weight (third race) for three-year-old fillies.

We will have coverage during the afternoon on our blog.

The carryovers are:
* $13,240 on the Late Pick 5, on races six through ten; it is a 50-cent minimum bet; a ticket can have multiple horses per race and thus multiple combinations; takeout is 15 percent.

With bettors chasing the rare carryover, it is possible that $75,000 or more will be wagered on the Late Pick 5.

*$16,545 on the Rainbow 6, on races five through ten; it is a 20-cent per combination only bet, with multiple combinations allowed on each ticket.

The carryovers are courtesy of Miss Regal Light, at 79-1, winning the seventh race on Thursday’s eight-race card. 

That resulted in no tickets with the winners of all six races in the Rainbow 6 and no tickets with all five winners in the Late Pick 5.

So, Gulfstream made its “non-jackpot” payoff to each of the seven ticket holders with five winners. Each received $1,236.44.

Thursday’s Late Pick 5 wagering was $20,771.   Each ticket with four winners received $105.35 on a minimum bet of 50 cents.
