Carryover at $11,538 on New Rainbow 6 Pool.

Gulfstream Park will have a carryover of $11,538 on its Rainbow 6 on Thursday.

First post is 12:35 p.m. for a ten-race card.

On Wednesday, there were six tickets with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races. Each of those tickets received $4,486.98 on a 20-cent bet.

Wednesday was the first day of a new pool in the Rainbow 6, in which there is a 20 percent takeout.

On Monday, the previous racing day, there was just one winning ticket in the Rainbow 6—and it paid $72,179.58. 

That was a combination of the full carryover of $16,791 and 80 percent of the day’s Rainbow 6 bet of $69,256.

Bettors on Wednesday wagered $48,101 on the Rainbow 6.
Per its rules on days with multiple winning tickets, 
Gulfstream took out the 20 percent and then divided 56 percent among tickets with the most winners (in Wednesday’s case six) and put 24 percent into the carryover. 

In the 13 race days since Jan. 1, there have been four days with just one winning ticket in the Rainbow 6.

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.
