The Gulfstream Park West meet will resume on Wednesday with ten races and first post of 1:15 p.m.
It will be the first day of a regular Wednesday through Sunday racing schedule for the meet, being held at Calder in Miami Gardens and sponsored by Gulfstream Park.
On Wednesday the Rainbow 6 carryover will be $100,250. It will be on the third through eighth races, with the sequence set to start at 2:21 p.m.
On the first race there will be a carryover of $9,211 on the Super Hi-5.
The $1 minimum bet requires picking the first five finishers in correct order, with no consolation payoffs such as four of five.
There were no winning Super Hi-5 tickets on either of Sunday’s last two races.
Thus, there is a carryover into Wednesday’s first race.
Wednesday will be the 17th day of the GP West meet.
The Rainbow 6 carryover has grown because thus far there have been no days with the with the jackpot payoff requirement of just one ticket with winners of all six Rainbow 6 races.
The jackpot consists of the entire carryover plus 80 percent of the day’s wagering on the Rainbow 6.
On Sunday there were three tickets with the winners of all six Rainbow 6 races. Each was paid $9,834.
Wagering on the Rainbow 6 was $52,703 on Sunday. Per its rules on non-jackpot days Gulfstream took out 20 percent, divided 56 percent among the winning tickets and added 24 percent to the carryover.
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.
