Saturday was the 16th straight race day with multiple winning tickets in the Rainbow 6—thus continuing the carryover.
There were three tickets with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races. Each of those tickets received $19,489.98. for a 20-cent bet.
Gulfstream pays out the Rainbow 6 jackpot only on days when there is just one ticket with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.
The jackpot is the combination of the full carryover plus 80 percent of the day’s new Rainbow 6 bet (20 percent takeout).
On days with multiple winning tickets, Gulfstream takes out 20 percent of the day’s Rainbow 6 bet. It then divides 56 percent of the day’s Rainbow 6 bet among tickets with the most winners (usually six) and adds 24 percent to the carryover.
On Saturday, the carryover coming in was $278,814. Bettors added $104,450 to the Rainbow 6 pool.
The Rainbow 6 is a 20-cent per combination-only bet. Multiple horses can be used in each race, thus setting up a ticket with multiple 20 cent combinations. For example, a ticket with two horses in each race has 64 combinations and costs $12.80.
