Gulfstream Park will begin a new Rainbow 6 pool on Saturday, following Friday’s mandatory payout on the bet.
Saturday’s 14-race card has first post of 11:55 a.m.
The Rainbow 6 will begin on the eighth race which has a scheduled post of 3:25 p.m.
On Friday, there were 42 tickets with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races. Each received $11,155.50 on a 20-cent bet.
The carryover coming in was $80,790. Bettors added $484,735 to the Rainbow 6 pool.
The 42 winning tickets divided the carryover plus 80 percent of the day’s new Rainbow 6 bet (20 percent takeout).
The jackpot is the combination of the full carryover plus 80 percent of the day’s new Rainbow 6 bet (20 percent takeout).
On non-mandatory days, Gulfstream pays out the Rainbow6 jackpot only when there is just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.
On non-mandatory days when there are multiple winning tickets Gulfstream takes out 20 percent of the day’s bet, divides 56 percent among tickets with the most winners (usually six) and adds 24 percent to the carryover.
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.
