Gulfstream: Rainbow 6 Guarantee is $300,000


Gulfstream Park will have a guaranteed pool of $300,000 on its Rainbow 6  on Saturday.

First post will be 1:15 p.m. for an 11-race card.  The Rainbow 6 will  be on the sixth race,  which has a scheduled post of 3:58 p.m.

That will follow a wild Friday on which there were no  Rainbow 6 tickets with all six winners.

There were three tickets with  five winners. Each received $16,256.94 on a 20-cent bet.

The rare lack of at least one ticket with six winners was  a consequence of four winners at 13-1 odds or higher in the Rainbow 6 races..  In the fourth race (first leg of the Rainbow 6)  the winner was Uncle Runt at 104-1. 

Per its rules for days without the jackpot take down requirement of just one ticket with all six winners, Gulfstream added $20,902 to the carryover—raising it to $159,786.

Thus, just over $140,000 will have to be bet for the pool to hit $300,000.  If it falls short, Gulfstream will make up the difference.

But based on betting patterns on Saturdays, it is likely that bettors at Gulfstream and at other locations will combine to wager $200,000 or more on 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.

*On the first race, there is an overnight carryover of $2,653.97 on the Super Hi-5. It is a $1 minimum bet that requires picking the first five  finishers in correct order, with no consolation payoffs.
