Gulfstream Rainbow 6 Carryover Passes $500,000

Gulfstream Park will have  a carryover of $506,539  on its Rainbow 6 on Sunday.

Gulfstream will have a 2-race card with first post of 12:00 p.m.  The Rainbow 6 will be on races seven through 12.

On Saturday there were 16 tickets with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.  Each received $14,263.40 on the  20 cent only bet. 

Meanwhile, Gulfstresam added almost $100,000 to the carryover.

The carryover has been growing  because Gulfstream has gone nine straight race days without the Rainbow 6 jackpot payoff requirement of just one ticket with the winners of all six races.

The jackpot  consists of the entire carryover plus 80 percent of the day's new bets on the Rainbow 6.

Here is what happened Saturday, under the rules for days with multiple Rainbow 6 winning tickets:
*The carryover coming in was $408,732

*Bettors added $407,623 to the pool

*Gulfstream took out 20 percent of the day's pool

*It divided 56percent of the day's pool among tickets with the most winners (in this case, as usual 6)

*It added 24 percent of the day's Rainbow 6 pool to the carryover.

Going into the 12th race there were 45  live tickets.  Two of them had a single, and if either won the ticket-holder would have taken down a jackpot of about $725,000.

But  singled horses Second Street and Modern Tale finished fifth and sixth, respectively. 

The 6-5 favorite Conquest Sandman led at every call and won the 1 1/16 mile turf race, for $16,000 claimers 4-years-old and up.

The winning combination was 6-11-1-8-1-6.

The only winner at more than double digit odds was Biloxi Bay, at 15-1 in the eighth race.
