Rainbow 6 Carryover Passes $3.4 Million
The Gulfstream Park Rainbow 6 carryover will be $3,442,469 on Saturday.
First post is 12:00 p.m. for a 13-race card. The Rainbow 6 will be on races eight to thirteen, with the sequence scheduled to start at 3:31 p.m.
The carryover keeps growing because Friday was the 34th straight race day without the jackpot payoff requirement of just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.
The jackpot consists of 80 percent of the day’s Rainbow 6 bet (20 percent takeout) and the entire built-up carryover.
On Friday, there were a whopping 870 tickets with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races. Each received $356.28 on the 20 cent only bet.
It was the fourth highest number of Rainbow 6 winning tickets since we began tracking handle at all four Gulfstream-run meets in August 2015.
The high number of winners and relatively low payout was the result of four winners at less than 2-1and the other two winners at 5-1 and 6-1.
The carryover coming in was $3,309,798. Bettors added $553,426 to the pool.
Per its rules on days with multiple winning tickets, Gulfstream took out 20 percent of the day's new bets. It then divided 56 percent among the tickets with six winners and added 24 percent to the carryover.
The program numbers of the six winning horses were 6-5-4-9-2-3.
The Rainbow 6 is a 20-cent per combination-only bet. A ticket can have multiple horses in each race. For example, a ticket with two horses in each race has 64 combinations and costs $12.80.
