Gulfstream: Rainbow 6 Carryover is $765,299
Gulfstream Park will have a Carryover of $765,299 on its Rainbow 6 on Sunday.
First post is 12:35 p.m. for the 13-race card. The Rainbow 6 is on races eight through 13.
The carryover has been growing because Friday was the 18th straight race day without the jackpot payoff requirement of just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.
The jackpot is the full carryover plus 80 percent of the day’s new Rainbow 6 bets.
On Saturday, the Rainbow 6 carryover coming in was $666,757
Bettors added $410,662 to the Rainbow 6 pool.
There were six tickets with all six winners. Each received $38,321.56 on a 20 cent bet. After its 20 percent takeout, Gulfstream divided 56 percent of the day’s bet among the tickets with six winners. It then added 24 percent to the carryover.
The Rainbow 6 carryover is at its largest of Gulfstream’s current championship meet.
The Saturday wagering on the Rainbow 6 was the second largest for the meet.
On Saturday Jan. 28, $469,172 was bet on the Rainbow 6. One of the races in that bet was the inaugural $12 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational (Grade 1). Gulfstream’s all-sources handle that day’s 12-race card was $40,217,924—a record for days when it did not hold the Breeders’ Cup.
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.
