With the fourth race coming up, the Gulfstream dirt track has been downgraded from Sloppy to Muddy.
The Rainbow 6 is on races seven to 12, with the sequence scheduled to begin at 3:52 p.m. The carryover, now 45 days old. is $2,402,684.
Due to scratches, mainly weather-related, the number of starters for the six races has been reduced to 51--a low number for the Rainbow 6 on a Saturday.
More so than on most days, it likely will take two or even three longshot winners to result in just one ticket with all Rainbow 6 winners (i.e. the requirement for a bettor to take down the carryover.)
Many betting syndicates are playing the Rainbow 6 and will be going deep in many races. Along with smaller bettors, they will be doing off-track handicapping and trying to find a horse that might be able to take an early lead and steal a race in the mud.
We will check back later with a few suggestions.
