Gulfstream Park has a 12:00 p.m. first post for Sunday’s 11-race card, and it has guaranteed that the pool in the Rainbow 6 will be at least $700,000.
The Rainbow 6, a 20-cent per combination only bet, will be on races six to 11 with the sequence scheduled to start at 2:30 p.m. The carryover coming in will be $461,577.
The Rainbow 6 pool consists of the full carryover plus the day’s new bets on the Rainbow 6
To reach $700,000, bettors would need to put $238,423 into the Rainbow 6. If the new bet is lower than that, Gulfstream will put in enough money to make up the difference.
We expect that bettors will wager between 200,00 and $300,000 on the Rainbow 6.
On Saturday, when the sequence included five graded stakes, wagering on the Rainbow 6 was $459,654.
That was part of an all-sources handle of $17,318,451–the highest in recent years at Gulfstream olher than on days with the Pegasus, Florida Dtrby or Fountain of Youth.
Of that, Gulfstream took out 20 percent, divided 56 percent among tickets with all six winners and added 24 percent to the carryover.
There were 64 tickets with all six winners. Each was paud $4,052.06 on the 20-cent bet.
Program numbers of the winning horses were 4-1-4-4-6-11.
The carryover has grown because Gullfstream has gone the full first 12 days of its championship meet without the jackpot/carryover requirement of just one ticket with all six winners.
