Tuesday, May 12 — When Gulfstream Park resumes racing tomorrow, it will have a carryover of $23,090 on the Pick 5 and a growing carryover of $58,229 on the Rainbow 6 (Pick 6).
The card has eight races, with first post time of 1:00 p.m.
The carryover on the Pick 5 is a rarity and is a result of there being no tickets with all of the winners of the last five races on Sunday. None of the favorites won any of those races.
Gulfstream always has a consolation payoff, usually $20 or less, on tickets with four-out-of-five winners on the 50-cent minimum Pick 5. On Sunday, it paid a relatively large $178.95 on each of 73 consolation tickets with four winners.
The day’s pool was $36,255 of which $23,090 will be carried over to Wednesday.
The Rainbow 6 is a 20-cent only bet. As with other multiple race wagers, a bettor can have an unlimited number of horses per race.
Gulfstream pays out the full Rainbow 6 pool (day’s bets plus carryover) only on days when there is only one ticket with all six winners.
On other days, Gulfstream pays out 70 percent of he day’s pool to multiple holders of tickets with six winners and puts 30 percent into the carryover.
On Sunday, each of the multiple winners received $6,146.06. It added $9,587 to the carryover–making it $58,229.
The Wednesday Rainbow 6 is on the third through eighth race.
It looms as a handicapping challenge. There are three claiming races, one optional claimer and two maiden special weight races.
The Pick 5 is on races four through eight.
