Rainbow 6 Opener Won by 6-1 Shot

Moonshine Cate, at 6-, won Wednesday's fourth race at Gulfstream to start the Rainbow 6.

Bettors wagered $148,964 on the Rainbow 6, which is  a 20-cent per  combination only bet

The  carryover, now into its  26th day, is $698,499 for today.

The fourth race  was moved from the turf to the dirt track that is sealed and listed as sloppy.  The fifth  and  ninth (final) races also will be moved from turf to dirt.

Rain has been intermittent at Gulfstream during the afternoon, following heavy  rain on Tuesday and  overnight.

There were 42 starters in the Rainbow 6 races.

To  go ALL in  every race would have cost $18,144.   That is  a little  steep, even for syndicates  and so-called whales.

But here is a wager  we expect some deep-pockets bettors made.

To  single  the favorite  R Angel Katelyn in the eighth race, the $50,000 Liza Jane Handicap, would have cost $4,536. 

That race is 6 1/2 furlongs on dirt  for 3-year-old fillies. Following three  scratches, it is down to a  four-horse  field.
