GP West Rainbow 6 Carryover Stays Alive, and Will Be $691,990 on Sunday's Card

By Jim Freer and Barry Unterbrink

Kantharos' Image (1) passed Harry's Ontheloose (2) in deep stretch and went on to win by three-quarters of a length in the 11th and final race at the Gulfstream Park West meet on Saturday.

The result kept the Rainbow 6 carryover alive for a 29th  day (the entire GP West meet thus far).

The carryover will be $691,990 on Sunday.  

The GP West meet, run at Calder in Miami
Gardens, will have nine races with first post at 12:50 p.m

The Rainbow 6 will be on races four to nine, with the sequence set to start at 2:22 p.m.

If Harry's Ontheloose had won yesterday's 11th race, there would have been just one ticket with all six  winning horses in the the Rainbow 6.  That ticket would have taken down a jackpot of  approximately $800,000.

Instead, the win by Kantharos' Image left two tickets with six winners.  Both received $65,741.60 on the 20 cents per combination only bet..

Program numbers of the winning horses were 5-3-6-5-5-1.

Other Rainbow 6 and wagering notes:
*Bettors added $206,650 to the Rainbow 6--the most on any day in the current cycle. Twenty-four percent of that was added to the carryover.

*Going into the last race there were 16 live tickets on the Rainbow 6.

* Four tickets had a horse singled in the $16,000 optional claiming raee at five furlongs on turf turf for 3-year-old and up.  In addition to Harry's Ontheloose, the singled horses had program numbers 3, 8  and 10.

Meet sponsor Gulfstream Park pays out the Rainbow 6 jackpot (full carryover plus 80 percent of the day's new Rainbow 6 bet)  only on days when there is just one ticket with all six winners.

So, once again there was excitement in watching a last race at GP West, even if you were not alive in the Rainbow 6.

*Saturday  was Millions Preview day, with nine stakes races.

Two of those races had longshot winners, and both were part of the Rainbow 6.

Travy Boy (5) , at 21-1, shot out to the lead and went on to win the sixth race--the Millions Sprint Preview.

Picara (5)  at 28-1 won the ninth race--the Filly and mare Turf Preview.

*Betting on the Late Pick 5 was $124,888.

Tickets with  five winners made $8,884.90 on a minimum 50 cent bet. Tickets with four winners made $54.35.  The number of winning tickets was not readily available.

The  Late Pick 5 included Picara's win, but not Travy  Boy's win/

*Amid intermittent rain, conditions were listed as Fast and Firm throughout the day.

Total handle was  $5,530,719.

*GP West held its 2018 Millions Preview Day on Saturday Nov. 10.--with eleven races including the same nine stakes as this year.

Total handle was $6,321,759 on a clear day with Fast and Firm conditions.

The Rainbow 6 was hit by  a single winning ticket on the previous day.

Thus, there was a new Rainbow 6 pool with betting of  $60,517.  Of that, $14,518  was placed into a new carryover.

There were 43 tickets with all six winners and each received $726.92.
