Rainbow 6 Carryover at $136,789

Gulfstream Park will have a carryover of $136,769 on its Rainbow 6 on Thursday.

First post is 12:35 p.m. for an 11-race card.

On Wednesday, there were five tickets with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races. Each of those tickets received $13,501.56 on a 20-cent bet.

The carryover going into Wednesday was $107,873. Bettors added $120,856 to the Rainbow 6 pool.

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

Wednesday was the sixth straight day with multiple winning tickets, thus continuing the carryover.

On days with multiple winning tickets Gulfstream takes out the 20 percent. It then divides 56 percent among tickets with the most winners (in Wednesday’s case six) and puts 24 percent into 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.
