Gulfstream Rainbow 6 Carryover Nears $300,000

The Gulfstream Park Rainbow 6 carryover has grown to $292,387 for Thursday.
Gulfstream will have eleven races with first post at 12:35 p.m.  The Rainbow 6 will be on races six through eleven.

On Thursday’s first race, there will be a carryover of $3,736.33 on the Super Hi-5. It is a $1 minimum bet that requires picking the first five finishers in correct order, with no consolation payoff such as four of five places.

On Wednesday, there were five tickets with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races. Each received a payoff of $18,004.72.

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

Gulfstream has gone nine straight race days with multiple Rainbow 6 winners. Thus, the carryover has continued.

On multiple winner days, such as Wednesday, Gulfstream divides 56 percent of each day’s Rainbow 6 bet among the tickets with the most winners  (in Wednesday’s case six). It then adds 24 percent to the carryover.

The carryover coming in was $253,805. Bettors added $160,834 to the Rainbow 6.

There were only five winning tickets on Wednesday  because the sequence included horses at 9-1, 12-1 and 19-1.

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.
