Gulfstream Park has added Thursday to its summer ‘twilight’ racing schedule, starting June 28th. As reported last week, the Friday 2:15 PM post was to entice race fans to get in some racing, and stay for the free concerts each Friday from 7-11 PM.
We’ll report to you the plans for subsequent Thursday’s when we get that from management. Sunday’s racing action saw an increase in the Rainbow 6 jackpot of about $45,000 as no single winner emerged. Approximately 37 winners took home $2,917 that day, resulting in a carryover of $801,669 for Friday.
It’s been 26 days since the jackpot was last paid out, and we surmise that Gulfstream may announce a mandatory payout on June 30th or July 1st. Those dates are the ending and beginning of their fiscal year per state statutes.
There will be no carryovers Thursday on the late pick-4, pick-5, or Super Hi-5 wagers.
