Gulfstream Rainbow 6 Carryover Grows to $111,212 for Wednesday

Gulfstream Park will have a Rainbow 6 carryover of $111,212 when it resumes racing on Wednesday.

First post is 12:00 p.m. for an 11-race card, with no stakes races.

The Rainbow 6 is on races six to eleven, with the sequence scheduled to start at 2:37 p.m. Those races have a total of 64 entrants, including also eligibles and main track only.

On Sunday the most recent race day, there were ten tickets with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.  Each of those tickets received $10,409.72 on the 20-cent only bet.

The carryover coming into Sunday was $66,958.

Bettors added $185,916 to the Rainbow 6 pool.  Of that Gulfstream took out 20  percent, divided 56 percent among the tickets with all six winners and added 24 percent to the carryover.

The winning combination was 5-6-4-1-9-7 on a day when the dirt was listed as Fast and the Turf was listed as Firm.

Two of the winning horses were favorites.  But the number of Rainbow 6 winning tickets was relatively low because betting was spread out among 62 starters.

Gulfstream makes a Rainbow 6  jackpot payout only on days when there is just one ticket with all six winners and on pre-announced mandatory  days when it divides the jackpot among multiple winning tickets.

The jackpot consists of 80 percent of the day's Rainbow 6 bet plus the entire incoming carryover.
