Big Saturday Carryovers at Florida Tracks

Welcome to Carryover Saturday at Florida's two thoroughbred tracks.

The big attractions are in the Rainbow 6 at Gulstream, starting at 3:16 p.m. and the Late Pick 5 at Tampa Bay, starting at 2:40 p.m.  

Conditions are Fast and Firm at both tracks.

The Rainbow 6 carryoverr  has grown to $1,050,170.  The 20-cent per combination only bet will be on races six to eleven with the sequence scheduled to start at 3:16 p.m.

Gulfstream is guaranteeing that the pool for the Rainbow 6 will be at least $1.65 million if there is just one ticket with all six winners. In that case, if the combinaton  of the carryover plus today's new Rainbow 6 bet is less than $1,65 million Gulfstream will put in the difference.  

If there are multiple winning Rainbow 6  tickets, the pool will be the combined carryover plus 8o percent of the day's new Rainbow 6 bet.

The Weather Channel forecast is for just a 5 percent chance of rain durimg racing hours.

Tampa Bay
On Friday, there were no tickets with all five winners in the Late PIck  5 and no tickets with all six winners in the Ultimate Pick 6.  In addition, there were no winning tickets in the Super Hi-5 in the ninth and final race.

First post is 12:35 p.m. for the nine-race card.  The dirt track is listed as Fast and the turf is listed as Firm.

The carryovers:
* Super Hi-5 -- $2,099 in first race ($1 minimum bet)

*Pick 6  -- $14,594 on races four to nine with sequence scheduled to start at 2:08  p.m. It is a 20-cents per combination only bet.
*Late Pick 5 -- $38,029 on races five to nine with the  sequence set to start at 2:40 p.m. It s a 50 cent minimum bet.

Based on prior betting patterns  at Tampa Bay, we expect that wagering could be as much as $250,000 on the Late Pick 5.

Both tracks are again racing with no spectators, and thus no on-track betting. Fans may watch and wager on Gulfstream ad Tampa  Bay via Advance Deposit Wagering (ADW) services.
