Five of Six Pays $55,322 in Gulfstream Rainbow 6; Thursday Carryover is $128,559

There were no  tickets with all six winning horses in the Rainbow 6 at Gulfstream Park on Saturday.

So, Gulfstream made its non-jackpot payout on the two  tickets that had five winners.
Both tickets won $55,322.42 on the 20 cents per combination-only bet.

Program numbers of the winning horses on races six to eleven were 4-3-5-9-3-7.

On Sunday, Morning Stride (3) who won the 10th race at 5-2 was the only winner in the Rainbow 6 at odds lower than 9-1. The high odds winners were the key to no bettors having six-of-six in the Rainbow 6.

The 10th race was the featured Richard Henry Lee Stakes, at 1 3/16 miles on turf for 3-YO and up.

Wagering on the Rainbow 6 was $197,626.  Following a 20 percent takeout, Gulfstream divided 56 percent of the day's bet among tickets with the most winners (in this case five) and added 24 percent to the carryover.

When Gulfstream resumes racing on Thursday, the Rainbow 6 carryover (now four race days old will be $128,559.  It will be on races four to nine, with the sequence scheduled to start at 1:30 p.m.

Gulfstream is guaranteeing that the Thursday jackpot/carryover pool will be at least $250,000 if there is just one ticket with all six winners.

If there is not a single ticket with six winners, Gulfstream will have the 20-56-24 percent payoff as on Sunday.

Thursday's first post will be at 12:00 p.m. The first race will have a carryover of $3,239 on the Super Hi-5.

That race is a $40,000 maiden claimer for 2-YOs.  It is five furlongs on turf with a $39,500 purse.  There are fourteen entrants, including, four also eligibles.
 The Sunday longshots also led to a Late Pick 5 payoff of $72,230.20 for the minimum 50 cents bet.  That was for tickets with all five winners. 

The number of tickets with five-of-five could not be readily determined.

Tickets with four of five winners paid $388.90 for a 50 cent bet.

Sunday's wagering on the Late Pick 5 was $226,618.
