HorseRacingFLA Staff Report
This Wednesday is dark for live racing at Gulfstream Park.
The Hallandale Beach, Fla., track will resume racing on Thursday with a nine-race card and first post of 1:15 p.m. It will be the 36th day of the 59-day spring meet that began April 5 and will end June 30.
Gulfstream will then have its regular Friday through Sunday racing. It will add a special Memorial Day card on Monday May 29.
First post is 1:15 p.m. each day.
The main attraction on Thursday is a carryover of $333,214.85 on the Rainbow 6. It will start with the fourth race with scheduled post of 2:53 p.m.
The carryover is growing because Gulfstream has gone 17 racing days with multiple tickets that had all six winners in the Rainbow 6 races.
Gulfstream pays out the jackpot (carryover plus 80 percent of the day’s Rainbow 6 bet) only on days with just one ticket with all six winners.
HorseRacingFLA’s review of Equibase charts shows that the carryover is the largest thus far in the spring meet for the Rainbow 6—which is a 20-cent per combination only bet.
