HRFLA Staff Report
After being dark Monday and Tuesday, Gulfstream Park will resume racing on Wednesday with two attractive carryovers.
First post will be 12:35p.m. for a ten-race card.
The first race has a Super Hi-5 carryover of $13,957.
The Rainbow 6 has a carryover of $579,853. The 20 cents per combination-only bet will be on races five to ten with the sequence scheduled to start at 2:36 p.m.
On Sunday, each ticket with all six Rainbw6 winners cashed $1,206.26 on a 20 cent bet. HorseRacingFLA’s review of Equibase charts indicates there were 182 such tickets.
Program numbers of the six winning horses were 7-2-5-1-5-3.
Gulfstream is guaranteeing that the Rainbow 6 pool will be at least $900,000 if there is just one ticket with all six winners. If the total of the carryover and new Rainbow 6 bets is less than $900.000 Gulfstream will need to put in the difference.
There have been multiple winning Rainbow 6 tickets on each of the first ten days of the 2020-2021 championship meet.
On Sunday, $392,853 was bet on the Rainbow 6. Of that, Gulfstream took out 20 percent and then divided 56 percent among tickets with six winners.
On Sunday, there were no winning tickets on the Super Hi-5 in either of the last two races.
That $1 minimum bet requires picking the first five finishers in correct order–with no consolation payoffs such as four of five.
When it is not hit, 18 percent of the new bet and all of a carryover moves to the pool in the next race that has seven or more starters.
At Gulfstream, the Super Hi-5 usually attracts just several thousand in bets when there is no carryover.
On Wednesday, it likely will bring in more than $50,000 in the first race.
