Rainbow 6 Pays $84.28, Carryover at $61,533

Gulfstream Park will have a Rainbow 6 carryover of $
61,533 on Friday.

First post is 12:35 p.m. for the 10-race card. The Rainbow 6 is on races five through ten.

On Thursday, the payoff on the 20-cent only bet was $84.28 for each of the 499 tickets that had the winners of all of the Rainbow 6 races.

That was the third lowest Rainbow 6 payoff of the year at Gulfstream or at its Gulfstream Park West meet held at Calder, according to HorseRacingFLA’s review of Equibase charts.

The low Rainbow 6 payoff was a result of favorites winning four of the six races and horses at 2-1 and 6-1 winning the other two races.

The carryover coming into Thursday was   $43,578. Bettors added $74,821 to the pool.

On the Rainbow 6, Gulfstream pays out the full jackpot (all of the carryover plus 80 percent of the day’s Rainbow 6 bet) only on days when there is just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.

On other days, Gulfstream takes out 20 percent of the day’s Rainbow 6 bets and then divides 56 percent among tickets with the most winning horses (in Thursday’s case six) and adds 24 percent to the carryover.

The Rainbow 6 is a 20-cent per combination-only bet. Multiple horses can be used in each race, thus setting up a ticket with multiple 20 cent combinations.  For example, a ticket with two horses in each race has 64 combinations and costs $12.80.
