Mandatory Rainbow 6 Pays $32,696.22

There were five tickets with  all six winner in the Rainbow 6 at Gulfstream Park on Sunday's  mandatory payout day, and each received $32,696.22 on a 20-cent bet.

A large  but undetermined number of tickets were eliminated when Gray Dude, at 21-1, won the tenth and final  race.  The odds on the previous winners in the sequence were 5-1, 8-5,  3-1. 3-1 and 2-1.

It was  closing day  of the Gulfstream summer meet. Thus, under a  Florida law, Gulfstream  was required to  pay  out the full Rainbow 6  jackpot even if there was more than one ticket with all six  winners. There  can  be no  carryovers into subsequent meets,such as the  Gulfstream sponsored  Gulfstream Park West meet at Calder, which will open on Wednesday.

The Rainbow 6  jackpot consists of the entire carryover plus 80 percent of he day's new bet  on the Rainbow 6  (20 percent takeout).

On Sunday, the carryover coming  in was $33,921.  Bettors added $162,029 to the Rainbow  6  pool.

 A new Rainbow 6 pool will begin at Calder  on Wednesday.

First post is 1:15 p.m. for  an eight-race card. The  Rainbow 6 will be on races  three through eight.

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.
