GP Rainbow 6 Carryover Grows Past $900,000

Gulfstream Park will have a Rainbow 6 carryover of $906,168 on Thursday.

First post will be 12:00 p.m. for the 11-race card.

The Rainbow 6 will be on races six  to eleven, with the sequence scheduled to start  at  2:37 p.m. The six races have a total of 54 entrants.

The carryover is the largest thus far in the Gulfstream championship meet that began Dec. 1 and is 45 days old. 

The Weather  Channel forecast  is  for the chance of rain to range between  25 percent and  50 percent during racing hours.

On Wednesday there were 880 tickets with the winning horses in all six Rainbow 6 races. Each of those tickets was paid $167.06 on the 20-cent only bet.

A series of low-odds winners led to the relatively high number of winning tickets and the relatively low payoff.

The carryover has grown because Wednesday was the 16th straight race day without the jackpot payoff requirement of just one ticket with the winners of all six rainbow 6 races,

The jackpot consists of the entire coming-in carryover plus 80 percent (20 percent takeout) of the day’s new Rainbow 6 bets.

On days with multiple winning tickets Gulfstream takes out 20 percent of the day’s Rainbow 6 bet, divides 56 percent among tickets with the most winners and added 24 percent to the carryover.

The carryover coming in on Wednesday was $843,158. Bettors on Wednesday added $326,866 to the Rainbow  6 pool—continuing the trend of the pool growing  in tandem with the carryover.

The program numbers for the winning Rainbow 6 horses were 9-7-1-2-1-8. Four winners were favorites and the other two  were at 9-5 and 7-2e
