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.
