Rainbow 6 Carryover Grows to $36,373

The Gulfstream Park West meet will have a Rainbow 6  carryover of $36,373 on Thursday.

First post will be 12:35 p.m. for a nine-race card at Calder in Miami Gardens.  The Rainbow  6 will begin with the fourth race.

It will follow a rainy and chalky Wednesday at GP West.

There were 127 tickets with the winning horses in all six Rainbow 6 races. Each ticket paid $147.06 on the 20  cent only bet.

Our review of Equibase charts shows that was the largest number of winning Rainbow 6  tickets at GP West  this year.

  Wednesday was the 33rd day of the 40-day meet that began Oct. 4 and will end Nov. 30.

Five of the Wednesday winning horses were favorites, and the other was 5-2.
Four of theRainbow 6 races were scheduled for turf, but because of morning rain they were  moved  to the dirt track that was sealed and listed as Sloppy.

The carryover is growing because Wednesday was the fifth straight day without the jackpot payoff requirement of  there being just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.

The jackpot consists of the entire carryover plus 80 percent of the day’s wagering on the  Rainbow 6.

The carryover coming on Wednesday was $28,401.
Bettors added $33,235 to the Rainbow 6. Gulfstream took out 20 percent of that. Per its rules on days with multiple winning tickets, it divided 56 percent  of  the day’s bets among the winning tickets and added 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.
