HorseracingFLA Staff Report
Sunday, Aug 30–The turf course and main track are both listed as good at Gulfstream Park for today’s ten-race card.
First post is 1:15 p.m. There are no stakes races on the card. Races one, four, six, eight and ten are scheduled for turf.
Despite periods of rain the last three days Gulfstream has not moved any races from the turf course, which has been dry following a summer that has been below average in rain fall.
There is an 80 percent chance of thunder storms this afternoon as the Miami-Fort Lauderdale area receives the impact of what had been Tropical Storm Erika.
There will be a Sunday carryover of $481,765.89 for the Rainbow 6 on the day’s last six races.
Gulfstream has set Monday Sept. 7. Labor Day, for a mandatory full payout on the Rainbow 6. On that day it will pay out the day’s Rainbow 6 bets plus any carryover regardless of whether there are multiple tickets with the winners of all six races.
Gulfstream usually pays out the full Rainbow 6 pool (day’s bets plus carryover) only on days when there is just one ticket with all six winners. On other days, Gulfstream divides 70 percent of the day’s Rainbow
6 bets among the multiple winning tickets and puts 30 percent into the carryover.
Monday Sept. 7 is the final day of the Gulfstream After Retirement Racing Program (GPTARP) portion of Gulfstream’s summer meet. Under state law, Gulfstream cannot continue with any carryovers beyond that date or a similar date in its racing schedule.
On Saturday, there were two winning tickets and each received a payoff of $41,314.90.
The Rainbow 6 carryover has been growing since July 16. That was 25 Gulfstream race days ago, and the last day on which there was just one Rainbow 6 ticket with the winners of all six races. The payoff on July 16 was $164,483.32
