Gulfstream Rainbow 6 Carryover Moves Past $500,000

The Rainbow 6 carryover keeps growing at a fast pace at  Gulfstream Park, and it will be $522,242.53. on Sunday.
(Note--in the article below this one, we will point out "just how fast" the Rainbow6 pool is growing).

Gulfstream has an 11-race card  with first post  at 1:10 p.m.

The Rainbow 6 is on races six to  eleven with the sequence scheduled to  start at 3:40 p.m.

There were seven tickets with the winners of  all six Rainbow 6 races on Saturday. Each of those tickets paid $20,240.04 on the 20-cent only bet.

Saturday was the 12th straight race day with multiple winning Rainbow 6  tickets, and thus the jackpot/carryover keeps growing.

The jackpot/carryover consists of the entire carryover plus  80  percent of the day's new Rainbow 6  bet (20 percent takeout).

Gulfstream pays that out only on days when there is just one ticket with all six  winners or on pre-announced mandatory payout days when it pays out the jackpot/carryover--no matter the number of winning tickets.

On most days, such as Saturday, Gulfstream takes out 20 percent of  the day's Rainbow 6 bets, divides 56 percent of that bet among winning tickets and adds 24 percent to the carryover.

On Saturday the carryover coming in was $461,519.  Bettors added $253,099 to the pool. Under the 20-56-24 rule, the carryover grows to $522,242.53  for  Sunday.
