Thursday Racing

For Thursday, Gulfstream’s Rainbow 6 carryover is $150,895.28, on races five to ten.

It is a 20-cent per combination only bet. Multiple horses can  be  used in each race,  thus  leading to multiple combinations on  a  ticket.

The carryover continues to grow because Sunday was the 14th straight race day without the carryover/jackpot payoff requirement of just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.

The feature eighth race is 1 1/16 miles on turf for 3-year-olds and up.  It has a $43,000 purse and a $16,000 optional claiming price.  We will have a preview on Thursday morning.
