Conditions are Fast and Firm for Sunday's 11-race card at Gulfstream Park.
The sixth race is coming up and it will be the start of a new Rainbow 6 pool. The sequence will start 3:10 p.m.
On Saturday, there was just one ticket with the winner o all six Rainbow 6 races. It paid $712,824 on the 20 cents per combination-only bet.
Gulfstream is guaranteeing that today's Rainbow 6 payout will be at least $200.000 if there is just one ticket with all six winners. If there is just one winning ticket and betting is less than$200,000. That probably will not be needed, considering this year's popularity of the Rainbow 6.
On Saturday Feb. 13, Gulfstream had a mandatory payout of the Rainbow 6 jackpot.
Gulfstream had a guarantee of $200,000 on the new pool the following day. Wagering on the Rainbow 6 was $348,162.
Our review of Equibase charts indicates that was Gulfstream's second highest Rainbow 6 handle on the first day of a new pool at least since August 2015, when we began tracking Gulfstream handle.
The highest was $493,421 on May 10, 2020 which also was a Sunday.
