Gulfstream Rainbow 6 Carryover Reaches $219,000
Gulfstream Park will have a Rainbow 6 carryover of $219,934.43 on Friday.
First post is 12:35 p.m. for a ten-race card. The Rainbow 6 is on races five to ten.
On Thursday there were 34 tickets with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races. Each ticket received $2,013 on a 20 cent bet.
The carryover is growing because Thursday was the tenth 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 in on Thursday was $190,547.
Bettors added $122,841 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.
Thursday’s wagering on the Rainbow 6 was
the highest on any weekday of the Gulfstream championship meet that began on Dec. 2.
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.
