Gulfstream Fast and Firm for Wednesday

The dirt is listed as Fast and the turf is listed as Firm for Gulfstream Park's ten-race Wednesday card, with first post at 12::335 p.m.

The Weather Channel forecast is for a zero percent chance of rain during racing hours.

The carryover on the Rainbow 6 has grown to  $406,116.

It is on races five through ten with the sequence scheduled to start at 2:33 p.m.

We expect that more than $100,000 will be bet on the Rainbow 6.  That is a large total  for a Wednesday in December.

However, the carryover has reached a size where some so-called syndicates are no doubt betting heavily--including going deep in many races.

That lessens the prospects of a "blue collar bettor" hitting the jackpot with a lone ticket that has all six Rainbow 6 winners.

But keep in mind that even with the 20  percent takeout and 24 percent add-to-carryover, 56 percent of the day's bet goes back to holders among the multiple winning tickets.

Thus, if you have a longshot or two that  comes in you have a chance of being among winners who could have a ticket worth $10,000  or more.
