The Gulfstream Park West meet will have a Late Pick 5 carryover of $86,095 on Sunday.
That is far below Powerball territory. But chances of a payoff are greater on the Late Pick 5, and are based on handicapping rather than luck.
GP West’s big day for the Late Pick 5 will follow two consecutive days, Friday and Saturday, when there were no tickets with all five winning horses in those races.
First post is 1:15 p.m. for Sunday’s ten-race-card, which has no stakes races. The GP West meet is at Calder in Miami Gardens.
On Sunday’s first race, there is a carryover of $1,513 on the Super Hi-5.
The Late Pick 5 is on races six through ten with the sequence scheduled to start at 3:59 p.m.
Sunday’s carryover on the Rainbow 6 is $46,365 on the GP West races.
The Rainbow 6 is on races five through ten with with the sequence scheduled to start at 3:26 p.m.
Saturday’ wagering on the Late Pick 5 was $109,290. Bettors were chasing a carryover of $16,430.
We projected that wagering on the Late Pick 5 would be $100,000 or more.
For Sunday, we expect that Late Pick 5 wagering could be higher than $250,000. That would be very high for that bet at a Gulfstream-sponsored meet other than its championship meet.
The Saturday parade of longshot winners resulted in a payoff of $20,675.95 for the minimum 50-cent bet on the Late Pick 4.
Saturday was the second straight day without any Rainbow 6 tickets that had all six winners.
So, Gulfstream made its non-jackpot payoff to tickets with five winners. There were five such tickets and each paid $5,834.54 on the 20-cent only bet.
Bettors wagered $52,274 on Saturday’s Rainbow 6. Of that GP West took out 20 percent, divided 56 percent among tickets with five winners and added 24 percent to the carryover.
