Gulfstream: Dark Wednesday; Carryover at $344,214 Thursday

The carryover on the Rainbow at Gulfstream Park has grown to $333,214.85.

It will be up for grabs on Thursday when Gulfstream resumes racing with a nine-race card and first post off 1:15 p.m.

The Rainbow 6 will be on the fourth through ninth races, with the sequence scheduled to start at 2:53 p.m. 

Wednesday is usually a race day at Gulfstream.  It will be dark this Wednesday May 24.  To replace that day. Gulfstream will have racing on Monday May 29 which is Memorial Day.

On Sunday, there were 16 tickets with the winners of all       six Rainbow 6 races.  Each ticket received $4,154.58 on a 20-cent bet.

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

The jackpot is the combination of the full  carryover plus 80 percent of the day’s new Rainbow 6 bet (20 percent takeout).

On days with multiple winning 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 Saturday, the carryover coming in was $303,873. Bettors added $122,721 to the Rainbow 6 pool.

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.
