Gulfstream Starts Week with $406,116 Rainbow 6 Carryover

Gulfstream Park and Tampa Bay  Downs will resume racing on Wednesday, both with ten-race  cards. 

First post at Tampa Bay is 12:25 p.m. The day's only carryover is $4,847 on the Super Hi-5 in the first race.

First post at Gulfstream is 12:35 p.m  The card's only  carryover is $406,116 on the Rainbow 6. It is on races five through ten, with the sequence scheduled to start at 2:35 p.m. for the 20-cent per combination only bet.

Wednesday is the 13th day of the 2018-2019 championship meet.

HorseracingFLA has been monitoring Gulfstream handle, via Equibase charts, since August 2015.

Our research shows that  the current carryover is the largest during that period after thirteen days of a Gulfstream sponsored meet--championship, spring, summer and Gulfstream Park  West  (Calder).

The carryover has grown because thus far there have been no days with the jackpot payoff requirement of just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.

The jackpot consists of the entire coming-in carryover plus 80 percent of the day's new Rainbow 6 bet.

On other days Gulfstream takes out 20 percent of the day's bet, divides 56 percent among tickets with the most winners (usually six) and adds 24 percent to the carryover. 

Gulfstream this week will have its regular  Wednesday through Sunday racing schedule.

The only stakes race during the period will be Saturday with the $100,000  Mr. Prospector at seven furlongs on dirt for 3-year-olds and up.

Gulfstream will be dark on Christmas Eve, next Monday, and Christmas Day, next Tuesday.

Tampa Bay Downs
Tampa Bay this week will add Sunday to its live racing schedule.

It will have live racing each Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday through May 5.
Tampa Bay will be dark  next Monday, Christmas Eve, and Tuesday, Christmas Day.
