Rainbow 6 Carryover Nears $700,000

Gulfstream Park  will have a Rainbow 6 carryover of $698,499 when it resumes racing on Wednesday, with nine  races and  a first post of 1:15  p.m.

On Sunday there were 127 tickets with the winners of all six Rainbow  6 races.  Each received $1,054.76 on a 20 cent bet--on a  day of intermittent rain with races on surfaces that had not fully dried from rain on Friday  and  Saturday.

The carryover  is  growing because Sunday was the 26th consecutive race day  without the jackpot payoff requirement of 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 Rainbow  6 bet (there  is  a 20 percent takeout).

Bettors  added $239,657  to  the  Rainbow 6 pool. That was the highest for the Rainbow  6 on any day during  Gulfstream's  spring meet that began on April 5.

After the  takeout, Gulfstream divided 56 percent  of the  day's bet among tickets  with all  six  winners  and added 24  percent  to the carryover.

The payoff was the lowest on the Rainbow 6 in the past thirteen race days.

It was  attributable to the after effects of a spill in the seventh race on the turf course that was listed  as good.

The three jockeys in the spill walked away from it.

 Bradley’s Sunshine fell while taking the lead in the stretch, unseating jockey Nicky Figueroa. Jose Garcia and Eduardo Nunez were subsequently unseated from their mounts, Deputy Dora and Card Spun, respectively. Figueroa was then taken to Memorial Regional Hospital for further evaluation.

Information on the three horses is not yet readily available.

Shortly  after the seventh race, Gulfstream decided to move  the ninth  and  tenth races from he turf  to the  dirt track  that was listed  as sloppy and  was sealed.

The seventh race was the second leg of the Rainbow 6 and the first leg of the Late  Pick 5.

Because of the surface switch following the start of those sequences, all live tickets on the two  multi-race bets were given all horses in the ninth and tenth races.

That led to a larger than normal number of winners on the Rainbow 6 and on the Late Pick  5. 

The pool for the Late Pick 5 was $95,716.  Tickets with five correct paid $198.50 for the minimum 50 cent bet.  Those with four correct paid $2.65. The exact number of winning tickets was not readily available.

Without the ALLs, there would have been fewer winning tickets and payoffs on both bets would have  been higher because Magic Two, at 15-1, won the off-the-turf tenth race.
