Rainbow 6 Hit for $90,632 at Gulfstream

The Rainbow 6 was hit on just one ticket on Sunday at Gulfstream Park, and it produced a jackpot payoff of $90,632 on a 20-cent bet.
Information was not readily available on where the ticket was purchased or on its cost (i.e. the number of 20-cent combinations).

It was the only ticket that had the winner of the tenth and final race, All Hansens Ondeck, and the winners of all five earlier races  in the Rainbow 6.

Gulfstream will begin a new Rainbow 6  pool when it resumes racing on Wednesday with nine races and first post of 12:55 p.m.  The Rainbow 6 is on the fourth through ninth races, with the sequence scheduled to start at 2:34 p.m.

The  Rainbow 6 jackpot is a combination of the full carryover plus 80 percent of the day’s new Rainbow 6 bets.

Gulfstream pays out the jackpot only on days when there is just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow  6  races.

On days with multiple wining tickets, Gulfstream takes out 20 percent of the day’s Rainbow 6 bet. It then divides 56 percent of the day’s Rainbow 6 bet among tickets with the most winners (usually six) and adds 24 percent to the carryover.

On Sunday the carryover coming in was $35,338. Bettors added $69,169 to the Rainbow 6.  The payoff was 80 percent of the  new bet plus  the  entire 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.
