Gulfstream Park will have two enticing carryovers on Friday, as part of a nine-race card with the regular summertime Friday first post of 2:15 p.m.
The Rainbow 6 Carryover is $72,444. It will be on races four to nine.
There is a carryover of $33,528 on the Super Hi-5. Based on past Gulfstream betting patterns with overnight carryovers on that bet, wagering could be as much as $200,000 on the first race Super Hi-5.
The Super Hi-5 carryover and Thursday's relatively high Rainbow 6 payout of $8,004 are consequences of Nightstorm winning the tenth and final race at 24-1 and Along the Trail finishing second at 16-1.
On Thursday there were no tickets with the first five finishers in correct order in the ninth race or tenth race. There are no consolation payoffs such as four of five--and thus wee have the overnight carryover.
If you plan to bet the Super Hi-5, we suggest that you handicap the first race and the second race.
Gulfstream can offer that bet, with a $1 minimum, only if there are seven or more starters in a race.
The first race has just seven entrants. If there are any scratches, it will not have the Super Hi-5. The second race has nine entrants.
The Rainbow 6 carryover is growing because Thursday was the fourth straight race day without the "jackpot" payout requirement of just one ticket with winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.
On Thursday there were six tickets with all six winners. Each received $8,004.08.
Bettors added $85,790 to the Rainbow 6. Of that, Gulfstream took out its standard 20 percent. It then divided 56 percent of the day's Rainbow 6 pool among the tickets with six winners and added 24 percent to the carryover.
